Methohexita l(Injection)

Continuous Monitoring of Respiratory and Cardiac Function

  • Methohexital should be used in hospital or ambulatory care settings that provide for continuous monitoring of respiratory (e.g. pulse oximetry) and cardiac function.
  • Immediate availability of resuscitative drugs and age and size-appropriate equipment for bag/valve/mask ventilation and intubation and personnel trained in their use and skilled in airway management should be assured.
  • For deeply sedated patients, a designated individual other than the practitioner performing the procedure should be present to continuously monitor the patient.

Note:  For intraveneous use in adults.  For rectal and intramuscular use only in pediatric patients.
