Abstract

Acute agitation is a therapeutic dilemma. Rapid control of agitation is necessary to minimize danger both to recipients of care and to caregivers. Although a comprehensive assessment may ultimately be necessary to determine the cause of agitation and to identify or exclude underlying medical illness, it is often imperative to treat agitation immediately. In this imperfect clinical world, it is essential to have treatments that are both safe and effective for patients with a wide variety of causes of agitation.
