Medical-Surgical Intensive Care Unit Daily Sedation Vacation Protocol

Intermountain Healthcare – LDS Hospital
Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
 
Many institutions typically remove sedation when a patient is near weaning from the ventilator and use the sedation vacation as a time to assess weaning readiness. This protocol is used by staff in medical-surgical intensive care units (MSICUs) to remove patients from continuous IV drip sedation as soon as is medically feasible.
