August 19, 2012 (Press-News.org) Moderate (conscious) sedation is a technique of administering sedatives or dissociative agents with or without analgesics to induce a depressed level of consciousness that allows a patient to undergo an unpleasant procedure but maintain cardio-respiratory functions. As minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures are performed increasingly outside of the operating room, moderate sedation is becoming commonplace in ambulatory surgery centers and office-based practices. The purpose of this course is to provide nurses and medical healthcare professionals with the knowledge and education required for safe medication delivery based on standardized operational guidelines. This course presents pre-procedure, intra-procedure and post-procedure assessment and monitoring, airway assessment, necessary equipment, drug and reversal medication used including doses, precautions and side effects, cardiac dysrhythmias recognition, as well preparation for an unexpected crisis.
