Lit for ED Nurses @ENAorg

It’s been awhile since I posted anything.  The time constraints of working full time and being a grad student overwhelmed my time management skills.  As I resurect my blog, i’m going to be more of a curator.

As an ED nurse the breadth and depth of knowlege required is almost overwhelming.  These articles are a bit older but all contain information or ideas that shold be helpful to ED nurses.

BACKGROUND:Sedations after endotracheal intubation (ETI) reduce the risk of self-extubation, uncontrolled pain, and myocardial infarction. Although several small single-center studies demonstrate low rates of sedative drug administration after ETI in the emergency department (ED), little is known regarding post-ETI sedative drug practices nationally.
