One of the most important elements of procedural sedation is the understanding that sedation is not a constant--it is a continuum. The use of sedation drugs outside of the operating room has expanded dramatically in recent years and it is becoming increasingly important for the non-anesthesiologist healthcare professional to fully understand every aspect of procedural sedation.

Sedation and anesthesia are important risk factors for morbidity and mortality during operative or invasive procedures. In the past, sedation was reserved for use in the operating room by anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists. Lower levels of sedation can be administered safely in procedural settings where loss of consciousness is not required, but even lower levels of sedation have risks. Administering sedation safely is critical to: • Help prevent negative outcomes • Comply with regulations This course will cover: • How moderate sedation relates to other types of anesthesia services, and how this affects patient safety • Important information about the administration of moderate sedation and analgesia, including processes and procedures that occur before and after administration

This skill is associated with the skill verification for Adult Moderate Sedation. The student is evaluated performing the “TE” Technique, which instructs the provider how to manage an airway mask and ventilation bag utilizing a 2 man method. This technique uses the patient’s soft, loose tissue to seal the mask with ventilation. The provider then performs the 2 man ventilation for a patient using positive pressure breathing to a patient who is not adequately ventilating.

This skill is associated with the skill verification for Adult Moderate Sedation. The student is evaluated scoring an airway using the Mallampati difficult airway evaluation tool. This tool assigns a scored classification according to the extent the base of tongue is able to mask the visibility of pharyngeal structures, thus indicating a large tongue in the airway.

This skill is associated with the skill verification for Adult Moderate Sedation. The student is evaluated measuring for correct size and placement of a Nasopharyngeal Airway (NPA). The student is taught to premeasure this airway adjunct if the patient matches some preprocedure airway red flag criteria. First adjunct utilized to bypass the tongue for a patient who is still arousable (deep sedation) , but is unable to manage their own airway.

The eBooklet has been developed to provide teaching guidelines to the identified trainer or ACLS instructor who will be confirming a set of skills after student completion of the National Sedation Center courseware. The student will have visually been taught the skill via the courses, and this booklet supports the trainer who will be watching the skill being physically performed. The videos are provided for the trainer as a reference of how to properly perform each skill. The links provide student and administrator instructions on how to designate and configure checklist evaluators.

Adult Moderate Sedation is the second of the tiered educational module used for education/certification in moderate sedation. The safe practice building blocks identified in the foundational knowledge course are reinforced, with introduction to the next level on the sedation continuum, moderate sedation. Focus is placed on checklist mentality, patient evaluation with ASA scoring, airway evaluation and use of capnography for early recognition and intervention of complications associated with the higher comorbities and longer procedure times with that of the moderate sedation procedure or Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA).

Tiered education model. Education/certification for non-anesthesia providers who are ordering or adminsterating sedation/analgesia to relieve pain or anxiety for a medical procedure requiring minimal sedation. Provides the "safe practice" building blocks needed to provide safe sedation procedures, which include; utilizing a checklist mentality, learning and assigning an ASA Physical Status, performing a focused H&P, consistent practice in initiating the time- out and practicing of closed loop communication.

A basic understanding of how ventilators work and use of best practice guidelines are essential to ensuring stable oxygenation, early detection of complications, and prevention of harm. Use of fundamental principles and best practice guidelines will optimize ventilation and minimize complications to improve care, minimize length of stay, and reduce costs. This course will help you prevent ventilator-associated events (VAE) in your facility. You will learn about: • Why ventilators are used and their associated risks • Ventilator functions, modes, settings, and alarms • How to prevent VAEs using best practice interventions • Principles of safe design related to technical care and teamwork
