What is Byfavo?
Byfavo is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Acacia Pharma. It is an ultra-short-acting benzodiazepine anesthetic. It is a sedation drug for the induction and maintenance of procedural sedation in adults undergoing procedures lasting 30 minutes or less. It has a very rapid onset and offset.
Byfavo is faster acting than alternatives such as midazolam and safer than other alternatives for the same use (propofol). The effects of Byfavo can be reversed with flumazenil to quickly stop sedation or anesthesia if required. Paion has found positive data in Byfavo clinical trials in patients undergoing colonoscopy and bronchoscopy and in high-risk patients.
What doses of Byfavo are available?
Byfavo is available in injection form, in the following doses: 20 m lyophilized powder for reconstitution, equivalent to 27.2 mg.
Personnel must be able to detect and manage airway obstruction, hypoventilation, and apnea, as well as maintain patient airways, supportive ventilation, and cardiovascular resuscitation.
Administer adult patients with an initial dose as a 5 mg push injection over a 1-minute time period. If required, give supplemental doses of 2.5 mg over a 15-second time period. At least 2 minutes must pass before the administration of any supplemental dose of ASA-PS III-IV.
