Abstract

This review provides an update on the pharmacology of airway management, emphasizing medications and management strategies widely used in an intensive care unit setting. Induction agents, muscle relaxants, opioids, sedative-hypnotics, and adjunctive agents are reviewed in the context of emergent airway management. Throughout this review, we emphasize the utility of considering a broad set of pharmacologic agents and approaches for airway management of the critically ill patient.
