Intensive Care Bites

An ESICM Talk powered by the ICM Journal & the NEXT Committee


Intensive care unit (ICU) sedation practices have dramatically changed over the last 20 years. Nowadays, they include light levels of sedation, SAT, and the use of non-benzodiazepines. An overview of ICU sedation practices’ evolution over the years has been recently published in the ICM Journal.

This publication highlights the challenge faced by clinicians during the COVID-19 pandemic regarding sedation practices and recommends reengaging bundled-based strategies such as the ABCDEF Bundle to promote liberation from the ventilator and promote recovery and survivorship.

We have interviewed Dr Stolling for more details relating to this study.
