Fentanyl is a potent synthetic narcotic analgesic with a rapid onset and short duration of action.Intravenous fentanyl is extensively used for anesthesia and analgesia, most often in operating rooms and intensive care units. It is often administered in combination with a benzodiazepine, such as midazolam, to produce procedural sedation for endoscopy, cardiac catheterization, oral surgery, etc. Additionally, fentanyl is often used in cancer therapy and other chronic pain management due to its effectiveness in relieving pain. It has also been found to be useful to improve the actions of local anesthetic during root canal treatment.
