UPDATE April, 2018: In this episode I mention that the evidence is not good for Midazolam in preventing PONV. However, a good friend and colleague, Dr. Michael Grant, did a nice meta-analysis of available trials which concluded that it actually does work fairly well. Check out his study:
Grant MC, Kim J, Page AJ, et al. The Effect of Intravenous Midazolam on Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: A Meta-Analysis. Anesthesia & Analgesia: 2016:122(3); 656–663.

This episode is just a short request for a favor. I spend a lot of time putting this podcast out free of charge and I enjoy doing it. But in order to justify the time to my department I need to be able to show some data. So I am asking listeners to please take 5 minutes to complete this survey. It is completely anonymous; your name will never be known or associated in any way with your response. Thanks so much for your help. You can expect more anesthesia and critical care related episodes soon.
