Specifically using a sedative 1-2 minutes prior to a paralytic so that the patient does not wake up while paralyzed (Mason et al., 2013). Also the medications should be pushed through a patent IV line, and flushed with normal saline between medications to avoid adverse reactions (Mason et al., 2013). Additionally, all RSI patients should have cardiac and respiratory monitoring before, during and after the procedure (Mason et al., 2013). Other factors in selecting RSI medication should be addressed, including patient-specific factors. Finally, medication availability can be a factor in choosing medications as drug-shortages can cause limited supplies of certain medications (Mason et al.,
