Eventually I am proved right. Sedation...Increases Risks
I got this one from a friend of mine. I can't believe it! FINALLY I am vindicated. If you haven't read any of my other posts, I was a victim of a crna with a syringe of Versed/Midazolam. He poisoned me with it, against my will, immediately prior to giving me an axillary nerve block. So here we have a recent article from Johns Hopkins and surprise surprise, they say the same thing I have been saying. I have found other articles, but this one is the most succinct in regards to sedation and nerve blocks. The article also addresses the COST of sedation. Something I recently had a crna try to argue with me over. She told me how "cheap" Versed/Midazolam is, in the vial. She didn't want to talk about the excess additional charges associated with Versed use. This article talks about it.
Here's the whole article linked above. I have highlighted and italicized those passages which I particularly like.
