The practice of emergency medicine has changed significantly over the past several decades, having evolved into a separate and distinct specialty with a unique knowledge base and training program. As the specialty has evolved, so have the types of patients being cared for in the emergency department (ED), as well as the range of therapies and procedures being performed. For many of these patients, the acute management of pain and anxiety will be an essential component of their ED care and fundamental to the performance of many diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Possessing an arsenal of anesthesia techniques is invaluable to the practice of emergency medicine. This chapter reviews anesthesia techniques that have special relevance in the ED setting.
