Summary
Brief summary
Sedation is an important treatment when caring for the critically ill patient on a
respirator. Adequate sedation has been found to reduce stress, promote relaxation, induce
amnesia, improve the tolerance of the respirator, and generally assist nursing care. However
all sedation produces side effects for the patients. The aim of this study is to measure the
effectiveness of two approaches to sedation management in an Australian Intensive Care unit.
