This peer-reviewed article attempts to identify the most appropriate medication to sedate a patient during an endoscopy procedure for patient safety. Samson et al. (2019) identifies the adverse reactions occur during sedation using these three different medications based on a 50- patient study. After reviewing study an analysis was conducted on how the study portrays the results and how successful they were on concluding. An analysis of the study was successful, and the findings are listed below.
Step 1: Research Analysis Complete the table below Topic of Interest: Comparison of Dexmedetomidine, Midazolam, and Propofol as an Optimal Sedative for Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: A Randomized Controlled Trial Research Article: Include full citation in APA format, as well as link or search details (such as DOI) Samson, S., George, S. K., Vinoth, B., Khan, M. S., & Akita, B. (2019). Comparison of Dexmedetomidine, Midazolam, and Propofol as an Optimal Sedative for Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: A Randomized Controlled Trial. Journal of Digestive Endoscopy. 5(2). Retrieved from: Professional Practice Use: One or more professional practice uses of the theories/concepts presented in the article Samson et al. (2019) is good for professional use for a few reasons, while it does have shortcomings. The study shows good breakdown of different ways to sedate a patient for an endoscopy. Shows the ease and benefits of Dexmedetomidine versus Propofol or Midazolam on healthy American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) I or II patients. Compares patient condition during procedure and post procedure using these three medications. Research Analysis Matrix Add more rows if necessary Strengths of the Research Limitations of the Research Relevancy to Topic of Interest Notes Patient population of the study was well defined. Limited patient population with limited health comorbidities. Compares and contrasts three different drugs used for endoscopy procedures. Clearly defines patient adverse effects broken down by drug as well as adverse effect. Does not include cost analysis of the different medications. Compares adverse effects that can arise during sedation with these medications. Study shows there are alternatives available to patients for sedation if they have contraindication s to one. Does not give good breakdown of the adverse effects and which needed treatment to correct. Gives a great breakdown in chart form of
subject and procedure characteristics. Step 2: Summary of Analysis Craft a summary (2-3 paragraph) below that includes the following: Describe your approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research Identify at least two strategies that you would use that you found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research Identify at least one resource you intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research This article can be good for determining the best and safest way to sedate patients for endoscopies. As explained by Smith (2009), clinicians can improve the way they go about their
