Moderate Sedation / Analgesia (Conscious Sedation)
Sedation and anesthesia are important risk factors for morbidity and mortality during procedures. Administering sedation safely is critical to help prevent negative outcomes and comply with regulations.
The purpose of this course is to educate nurses about how moderate sedation relates to other types of anesthetic services, and how this relates to patient safety. In addition, discussion will cover important information about the administration of moderate sedation, as well as processes before and after and how The Joint Commission expects accredited facilities to manage patients receiving moderate sedation.
