Kenneth L. Reed
This course will be a start to finish, chronological order discussion of the most important ways to increase patient comfort through sedation. We’ll begin the session with a discussion of oral sedation including patient selection and better agents for specific procedures. Then we’ll discuss nitrous oxide in addition to the combination of oral sedatives with nitrous oxide.
- Discuss the pharmacokinetic differences between agents used for enteral sedation
- Discuss the significant differences between “half-life” and “clinical duration of action” of a drug
- Describe the safety profile of nitrous oxide
- Discuss the use of nitrous oxide with orally administered sedatives to achieve a “titratable” technique
