Agitación

IV Combos Work for Agitation in the ED
By Todd Neale, Senior Staff Writer, MedPage Today - Published: September 15, 2012 - Reviewed by Zalman S. Agus, MD; Emeritus Professor, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Action Points:

  • This randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study was designed to compare time to sedation in the acutely agitated patient receiving midazolam following intravenous saline, droperidol or olanzapine.

  • Note that the study found that intravenous droperidol or olanzapine were effective as adjuncts to midazolam and decreased the time to adequate sedation compared with midazolam alone.
