Physicians, nurses, and safety experts comprehensively review sedation and analgesia to provide a completely new reference guide to safe sedation practices consistent with existing guidelines. Starting with an integrated review of the basic physiology and neurobiology of the sedated state, the authors proceed through clinical guidelines and practices, and conclude with an examination of quality-outcome measures and processes. They also review current mandates for safe sedation practices and address the key clinical issues of pharmacology, monitoring, and recovery. Special tables and figures throughout the book summarize protocols, regulatory requirements, recommended dosages, monitoring requirements, and quality assurance tools.

Editorial Reviews

"This would be an excellent resource for clinical areas where sedation and analgesia are administered. There are tables and figures throughout the book summarizing protocols, regulatory requirements, dosages, monitoring requirements, and quality assurance tools. . . The book is technical and comprehensive. Many research studies are cited. Multiple drugs and procedures are included. It is an excellent reference for professionals providing sedation and analgesia in various settings. Nurses would have to be specialists in these settings to understand or have a need for this book." -Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"The first chapter is an excellent review of the neurobiology of sedation. Understanding the role of monitoring is well described by Tremper. He emphasizes the rationale and underlying physics of the devices commonly used. This is a thoughtful review of the issues involved in conscious sedation." -Annals of Internal Medicine"...the book is a significant contribution to a complex and challenging area in health care. The outstanding chapters alone make the text worthwhile." -Anesth Analg
