It is suggested that patients consuming large amounts of alcohol are difficult to be sedated by midazolam probably due to cross tolerance. We studied to know the adequate administration doses of midazolam in patients with chronic alcohol consumption.
Study I; We prospectively studied 117 outpatients presenting for colonoscopy. According to alcohol consumption we divided four groups such as group I: 0 g/day, group II: <10 g/day, group III: 10∼40 g/day, group IV: >40 g/day. We initially administered 0.06 mg/kg midazolam and add up to spontaneous eye closure. We measured grade of amnesia, level of consciousness, endoscopist's assessment and VAS scale for pain after recovery. Study II; We measured induction time after 0.08 mg/kg midazolam in 60 patients who drink alcohol.
Additional amount of midazolam was not significantly different between the groups (group I: 0.0145 mg/ kg, group II: 0.0214 mg/kg, group III: 0.0181 mg/kg, group IV: 0.0199 mg/kg). There were no differences of sedation parameters between the groups. However the induction time was prolonged and correlated with alcohol consumption.
For adequate sedation in patients with chronic alcohol consumption, longer induction time rather than increasing dosage is required. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2004;29:495⁣499)
