Overview

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 sedationists, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David B. Glick, MD, MBA (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a brief presentation of the considerations surrounding the administration of sedation by non-anesthesiologists.
Purpose: The author's worthy purpose in writing this book was to provide an understanding of the basic science underlying sedation and of the standards of practice when administering sedation. Unfortunately, the coverage is too shallow to be of much use to experienced practitioners and omits much of the detail necessary to build a meaningful foundation for novice providers.
Audience: The intended audience is "sedationists" of all levels of experience. Unfortunately, by trying to meet the needs of all providers, the book short changes all readers.
Features: The author provides a brief overview of sedation practice standards and concerns and then offers short descriptions of sedative techniques in a number of common venues where non-anesthesiologists administer sedation. The section on legal concerns and ramifications is by far the most useful, and the boxed case reports throughout the text offer interesting examples. Unfortunately, many of the sections do not give novices enough information to move forward and leave further explanation to other texts or experience. In addition, there are almost no illustrations, a major concern, especially when one is trying to explain monitors and the information they provide.
Assessment: The book is very well written but a bit limited in its usefulness to those interested in providing sedation.
