The Pediatric Procedural Sedation module will focus on the care of children (newborns through adolescence) undergoing moderate sedation.
The ultimate goal of procedural sedation is to provide pediatric patients with the benefits of sedation while minimizing the associated risks. The Pediatric Procedural Sedation module will provide clinical management guidelines and competencies for the purpose of ensuring uniformity of care provided to pediatric patients receiving procedural sedation.
This online module is intended for Licensed Independent Practitioners (LIPs), including physicians and allied health professionals with appropriate credentials, such as certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA) and advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNP). It is primarily geared toward providers at Swedish, but can be used by anyone with internet access.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to provide better patient care through an increased ability to:
- Prepare and evaluate pediatric patients prior to sedation
- Distinguish between the different levels of sedation and recognize when a patient's level of sedation progresses from moderate to deep
- Identify the drugs commonly administered to induce moderate procedural sedation
- Manage side effects and complications of moderate procedural sedation
