Etomidate is a sedative agent with increasing use for emergent rapid-sequence intubation (RSI) because of its favorable hemodynamic profile. This prospective, observational study documents the authors' preliminary experience with etomidate as part of an aeromedical RSI protocol. Major trauma victims received etomidate 0.1 to 0.3 mg/kg intravenously (IV) before administration of a neuromuscular… CONTINUE READING
