The physician or specialized nurse practitioner (SNP) performs five injections during a MAID.

First, an injection of Midazolam creates a state of calm, drowsiness or sleep.

In the 2nd stage, the injection of an intravenous anesthetic avoids discomfort in the venous line during the injection of Propofol.

In the 3rd stage, the injection of two syringes of Propofol plunges you into a deep coma.

And in the 4th stage, the injection of a curare causes you to stop breathing.
