Most states carry out executions with a three-drug lethal-injection protocol. Others use a single drug. The three-drug protocol typically begins with an anesthetic or sedative, followed by a second drug to paralyze the inmate and a third drug—typically potassium chloride—to stop the prisoner’s heart. The first drug used varies by state and is listed above for each execution.
