    I, too work ICU and only in Critical Care areas in my facility are we allowed to give IVP Haldol. NEVER on the floors!

    I LOVE DIPRIVAN!!!!! Every intubated pt should be on this drug! It acts quickly and wears off quickly, most of the time anyway.

    Diprivian IS propofol. I too LOVE this drug in the unit, as I mentioned in earlier post.

    I have given Haldol IV/PO/IM...........We have a nice range of confusion protocols. I have yet to decide if I prefer ativan or Haldol........................
    Most MD's prefer Haldol as it is less sedating than ativan.....
    Profofol is still the best vented sedation.

    Trauma RUs, what is Geodon? I haven't heard of that one before.
    Geodon is a fairly new atypical anti-psychotic.
