The Pediatric Procedural Sedation Handbook
The Pediatric Procedural Sedation Handbook provides a comprehensive but concise review of the essential information needed to allow for the safe practice of pediatric procedural sedation. Written by a group of multidisciplinary authors, this text explores the fundamentals of sedation, procedural sedation, special patient considerations, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and more. Each chapter offers a starting point and suggestions for further in-depth study of all aspects of providing safe, effective, multidisciplinary-team based sedation care for children undergoing testing and procedures outside of an operating room setting. Appendices providing medication dosing and delivery route suggestions complement the text and can be used for quick reference. This book is a must-read for any clinician involved in modern, team-based patient-centered care, including physicians, nurses, dentists, and child life specialists.
