The combined use of sedatives and analgesics in critically ill adults is key to optimizing patient comfort and safety. But it is unquestionably challenging for critical care practitioners—a balance of science and art. An interdisciplinary ABCDE bundle of care is a strategy for bringing the best of critical care research to the bedside. The components of this bundle are: AB, the combined use of Awakening (daily sedation cessation) and Breathing trials; C, Choice of sedative; D, Delirium screening and management; and E, Early exercise. This program uses a case-study format to review and discuss the ABCDE bundle of care. It is designed to enhance multidisciplinary collaboration in the provision of state-of-the-art sedation for critically ill patients.
