This educational program will highlight current best practices and provide risk managers, and those responsible for patient safety, with a road map for how to design and implement a procedural sedation risk assessment.

The use of non-operating room anesthesia and procedures will increase as newer and more advanced applications of medical and surgical technology continue to grow. Procedural (conscious) sedation is not without risks. Unfortunately inadequate patient monitoring during procedural sedation can seriously, sometimes fatally, harm patients. Healthcare risk managers have the opportunity to advance patient safety and mitigate risk by applying risk management principles and techniques to their organization’s procedural sedation program. This educational program will highlight current best practices and provide risk managers, and those responsible for patient safety, with a road map for how to design and implement a procedural sedation risk assessment.

Objectives:

  • • Define and describe procedural sedation and NORA
  • • Explain the risk management process steps as it relates to procedural sedation risk assessments
  • • Explain Respiratory Compromise etiology
  • • Discuss the significance of monitoring with capnography
