Italian term or phrase: coda di sedazione e curarizzazione
I have found an explanation of the above terms, but have no idea how to translate them into English. It also seems strange in the context, which is that of a patient who suffered an acute myocardial infarction, but was actually seen for acute pulmonary edema. There is no mention anywhere of him being sedated.
Full sentence reads:
ALL'ARRIVO IN PS PAZIENTE IN CODA DI SEDAZIONE E CURARIZZAZIONE, NEUROLOGICAMENTE NON VALUTABILE, PUPILLE MIOTICHE ISOCORICE FOTOREAGENTI.

The explanations I have found for coda di sedazione e curarizzazione are:

ll mancato risveglio (talking about a patient who took too long to wake up after anaesthesia) a una «coda di sedazione» (che, nel gergo degli anestesisti, indica il prolungarsi dello stato ipnotico dovuto ai farmaci usati per far dormire il paziente). In realtà si trattava di una «coda di curarizzazione», cioè di un ritardo del recupero del tono muscolare dovuto proprio a quei farmaci che vengono somministrati per «paralizzare» i muscoli durante l'intervento. Sono farmaci che hanno un'azione simile al curaro, una sostanza tossica usata in passato dagli indigeni sudamericani, sulla punta delle frecce, per immobilizzare il nemico.

This is very urgent, my deadline is in 2 hours. Any help much appreciated.

Explanation:
This is not my field, but in view of the exigencies: don't you already have your answer in the quoted passage? Seems like the person that wrote the report failed to distinguish between these two types of residual effect.

If so, simply "sedation and curarization" would be correct, reflecting the writer's deficiency.

Instead of "coda," see "residual" as in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postoperative_residual_curarization
