Abstract

Introduction: Sepsis is a systemic inflammatory response to infection and is a life-threatening condition. Sedation is important such as these patients. Some drugs that used for sedation may have antimicrobial effects. The aim of this study was to investigate the antimicrobial activity of propofol, ketamine, thiopental, dexmedotomidine and midazolam, which are widely used in intensive care in the form of infusion for sedation.
