Procedural Sedation Part 2- Medications

This episode is part 2 of the procedural sedation podcast.  This episode focuses on the medications that we commonly use for procedural sedation.  First, we’ll review the use of oxygen during procedural sedation and then talk about basic airway maneuvers before we talk about individual medications.  For each drug, the drug class, dosing, duration of action, and adverse effects will be discussed with the overall theme of patient safety.

Here is a link to emupdates.com- a website by Dr. Reuben Strayer.  In this post is a short video on how to effectively ventilate using a BVM with two people- and only one of them needs medical training!
