Title:
Procedural sedation of elderly patients by emergency physicians: a safety analysis of 740 patients
Authors:
Homfray, G; Palmer, A.; Grimsmo-Powney, Helen; Appelboam, Andrew; Lloyd, Gavin
Abstract:
The elderly are perceived as a high-risk group for procedural sedation. Concern exists regarding the safety of sedation of this patient group by emergency physicians, particularly when using propofol.We analysed prospectively collected data on patients aged 75 yr or older undergoing sedation between October 2006 and March 2017 in the emergency department of a single centre. We used the World Society of Intravenous Anaesthesia International Sedation Task Force adverse event tool, stratifying identified adverse events according to consensus agreement.
