PURPOSE: Intravenous benzodiazepines are commonly used to achieve conscious sedation in outpatient bronchoscopy. Though effective, dose-dependent-adverse events may be encountered with the use of these sedatives. Diphenhydramine, a hypnotic, is sometimes used as an adjunctive agent in bronchoscopy to decrease sedative usage. However, data to support this practice is lacking. Our goal was to determine if adjunctive diphenhydramine significantly decreases doses of benzodiazepine in outpatient bronchoscopy.
