Course description

The term “sedation” is used to describe the act of giving medication to alleviate anxiety and/or pain associated with potentially unpleasant procedures. Sedation is a safe practice in a setting with proper monitoring, adequate IV access and experienced personnel. The physician or nurse administering the medications should be familiar with them and prepared to deal with their potential side effects. The goal of the course is to prepare the health-care provider to confidently administer sedation, including airway management, a review of sedation drugs and understanding the UC Davis Health System sedation policy. The course includes group participation scenarios of sedation complications that have been designed to sharpen the participant’s assessment and response skills.
