Brooke just got home from work a few hours ago and read the last blog entry. She would like me to provide some more information, mainly for her nurse friends, about the conscious sedation procedure I underwent to remove my boot from my mashed potato ankle.
As she explains it, it took, "an obscene amount of drugs to sedate Tony. This included 100 mcg of Fentanyl, 5 mg of Versed, and ETOMIDATE!" She asked that I add the emphasis to the last drug, pictured above in 3D!
Let's admit it. Most of us have no clue why this amount of drugs is obscene. Therefore, to all of our nurse and doctor friends, and to Brooke's co-workers, it is now your duty to explain what this means to the rest of us.
I especially would like to know if I was just a few mg's, or whatever mcg's are, away from being consciously sedated for infinity.
