About this book


The administration of sedation and analgesia for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures has evolved into a medical specialty that requires specific credentials for its practice. In Sedation and Analgesia for Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures, physicians, nurses, and safety experts comprehensively review sedation and analgesia to provide a completely new reference guide to safe sedation practices, one consistent with existing guidelines. Starting with an integrated review of the basic physiology and neurobiology of the sedated state, the authors proceed through clinical guidelines and practices, and conclude with an examination of quality-outcome measures and processes. To enable clinicians to develop institutional guidelines for their own practice settings, they also review current mandates for safe sedation practices established by such regulatory agencies as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. Additional chapters address the key clinical issues of pharmacology, monitoring, and recovery. Special tables and figures throughout the book summarize protocols, regulatory requirements, recommended dosages, monitoring requirements, and quality assurance tools.
Up-to-date and highly practical, Sedation and Analgesia for Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures provides a sound scientific understanding, as well as an authoritative reference guide, that will help new and established clinicians, and medical personnel generally, ensure patient safety when administering sedation and analgesia.
