Luke T., Dr -

I've used low dose morphine or ketamine to keep patients on the NIV reasonably comfortably with good success. Never used dexmedetomidine before in my ED practice

Paul Z., M.D. -

For NIV, if we don't have dexmed in our ED, what would you think about droperidol? Sedation, no vomiting. It became available again in the US a number of months ago and we were fortunate - it never went of hospital formulary - so as it soon as it was again available, we ordered it.

brendanC -

Sound ideal for NIV.
For a busy ER, having to titrate / hold / titrate sound like a recipe for an M and M and /or RN being overwhelmed. I'll stick to propofol. As usual, super helpful into to drug our hospital currently only uses in ICU.
