Aldretti Scale

  1. Help!!! I am looking for an online or easily accessable reference for the Aldretti Scale. We are updating a policy and I am trying to verify that we are using and correctly referencing this scale or determine if we are using a modified Aldretti scale. Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks.

    We use the Aldrete score in the ER with our conscious sedation protocol.

    We do too...... I love sedation..........for my patients.........not for me. But then if it is for your patient.....sometimes it is still for you lol.

    Thanks for the website and the info. Google is often my friend, but I was getting hits for the Aldrete scale under, what I now know, is the incorrect spelling.

    Even when I don't know enough to know what questions to ask, you guys still bail me out. Thanks.
