Summary

Sedation is a vital tool for allowing investigations and procedures to be performed without full anaesthesia, but demand for sedation greatly outstrips the supply of trained anaesthetists. Sedation requires care if it is to be used correctly and modern seditionists, including junior doctors in all specialities, medical students, anaesthetists, dentists, and theatre, dental and paediatric nurses, must be able to demonstrate they can practice safely. They need a sound understanding of the basic sciences involved, and an intimate knowledge of the required standards of practice. This book is a first-line educational resource for all those training in the techniques of sedation, and for those already practising who wish to consolidate their knowledge in a structured way.This highly practical handbook is therefore ideal for experienced and novice practitioners alike. It covers basic principles including patient selection and assessment, pharmacology, resuscitation competencies, monitoring equipment and legal issues, and the numerous clinical scenarios bring pertinent issues to life, emphasising the importance of safe practice. It is a unique universal introduction for practitioners from any clinical background.
