Brief Summary: The use of procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) to accomplish painful procedures in the emergency department (ED) has become a standard of practice over the last decade. Substantial variance exists regarding usage of medication for PSA, and many anesthetic agents have been proposed for this use.

To our knowledge no head to head study compared the clinical effectiveness, safety profile and amnestic properties of midazolam/ketamine vs. propofol regimens for PSA in the adult ED setting.

This prospective randomized trail can will help to evaluate the effectiveness and safety profile of Midazolam/katamine regimen for ED PSA in adults and will contribute to the discussion regarding propofol roll in the ED.
