    Essential Considerations for Moderate Sedation

    "Sense and Non-Sense" This presentation will highlight essential scientific principles for moderate sedation and attempt to dismiss arcane narratives that persist in clinical practice.

      3. Describe appropriate monitoring of perfusion, ventilation and oxygenation
      4. Describe recognition and management of related complications.
