1. Identify clinical situations where Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA) is used and clinical characteristics of patients who would be fit or “unfit”
2. Review preparation, assessment and monitoring of the patient for sedation
3. Identify risk factors and diseases that may affect the response to sedatives
4. Choosing pharmaceutical agents used for desired levels of sedation
5. Establish goal and level of sedation, and atypical sedation responses
6. Review the complications/emergencies that can arise during sedation and applying crisis management strategies
7. Discuss post procedure care, monitoring, documentation and discharge standards​

Description:
Current practise for procedural sedation & anesthesia (PSA) now includes many care locations and care providers, not just the surgical suite and the anesthesiologist. Despite this, high standards need to be maintained for the best outcomes. This webinar will review the techniques, knowledge and skills required to to administer and/or monitor short acting sedatives or dissociative agents, with or without analgesia, to reduce the patient’s discomfort, apprehension, or unpleasant memories while minimizing any chances of cardio respiratory depression during diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. A spectrum of PSA methods and pharmaceutical agents will also be discussed.

• Staff of Emergency, Critical Care, Endoscopy and Minor Surgical Suites, Cath Labs, Interventional Radiology
• Staff with an interest in Procedural Anaesthesia from Surgical Suites, PARR , ECT Suites, LDRP, Dental Suites
