Safer Sedation/Analgesia by Non-Anesthesiologists-November 2016
The goal of this activity is to help learners identify potential risks to giving a patient moderate or deep sedation and how to rescue patients from unintended consequences of sedation.
At the conclusion of this course, the participants should be able to:
- List monitoring requirements of safe sedation and the devices used during the process;
- Discuss basic pharmacology of sedative and analgesic agents and their reversal agents;
- Describe how to perform airway rescue maneuvers to support ventilation.
