A collaborative effort by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) has produced comprehensive standards for safe sedation practice.[1-4] The new guidelines stress that the level or score referring to the patient’s depth of sedation is independent of drug choice, route of administration, or the intended level of consciousness.In most cases, regardless of the type of procedure, children are deeply sedated in order to provide adequate working conditions.
As triple warmer was sedated and spleen strengthened, these feelings surfaced.
My concoction of choice for sedating cardiac patients, both dogs and cats, is diazepam (Valium) and butorphanol, 0.2 mg/kg of each, mixed for an IV injection (stings if given out of the vein).
This mixture will precipitate briefly, then clear after rocking the syringe back and forth a couple of times.
Dear Donna: Having attended one of your workshops specific to weight loss issues, I would like to share some of the results several of us, vigilant about sedating triple warmer and strengthening spleen, have experienced.
Initially there was wonderful euphoria, with feelings of well-being and contentment.
