Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the order of administration in intubation drugs?

    • A.

      Sedation, Analgesia, Paralytic

    • B.

      Analgesia, sedation, paralytic

    • C.

      Paralytic, Analgesia, Sedation

    • D.

      All of the above mentioned

    Correct Answer
    B. Analgesia, sedation, paralytic
    Explanation
    The correct order of administration in intubation drugs is analgesia, sedation, and then paralytic. This sequence is followed to ensure that the patient is first provided with pain relief (analgesia), followed by sedation to induce relaxation and reduce anxiety, and finally the administration of a paralytic to achieve muscle relaxation and facilitate intubation. This order is important to minimize discomfort and complications during the intubation procedure.
