It is however mostly used in mechanically ventilated patients in order to avoid over and under-sedation. RASS is mostly used in the setting of mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit to avoid over- and under-sedation. A RASS of -2 to 0 has been advocated in this patient population in order to minimize sedation.
This strategy has been shown to reduce mortality, and to decrease the duration of mechanical ventilation and the length of stay in the ICU. Mechanically ventilated that are deeply sedated RASS of -3 or less have been shown to remain intubated and mechanically ventilated for longer periods of time. This in turn leads to longer ICU stays and higher mortality. Similarly, mechanically ventilated patients that are too agitated are at risk of self-extubation and of ventilator dyssynchrony.
