hello, i am really curious about this:
1. if there is a patient with a decreased level of consciousness, how can i know if for intubation this patient still needs the induction agent (or even a fentanyl, lidocain) or not ? is it possible if we correlate it with GCS level?
2. Can i know it by checking the absence of eyelid reflex?
3. is it possible that a patient needs only some response blunting drug (such as fentanyl or lidocaine iv) without the need of induction agent? thx u
please help answer..sorry for asking lots of questions..i am quiet confuse about this..
warm regards, Jean
