This talk will first review the use of remimazolam in ASA 3 patients, the elderly, and super-elderly patients. The safe use of remimazolam in geriatric patients is sought through case reports and various studies of bolus infusion or continuous infusion. Then, the anesthetic induction of remimazolam and other anesthetic induction agents is compared. Finally, precautions for the use of remimazolam and future research directions are discussed and conclusions are drawn.
