Taking the Torture out of Procedural Sedation and Analgesia:

Emergency nurses are often called to assist with procedural sedation to facilitate diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. While this tool can be highly beneficial, it also carries inherent risks. This presentation will cover key aspects of procedural sedation, including indications, preparation, medications, recovery, and discharge criteria. With adequate knowledge and preparation, emergency nurses can safely utilize procedural sedation and analgesia to facilitate patient care.

Objectives:

  • List three medical procedures that can be enhanced when performed utilizing procedural sedation.
  • Describe at least three steps that must be taken prior to performing procedural sedation.
  • Review different medications and their pharmacodynamics as it pertains to procedural sedation and analgesia.

 Title: Sign Here: Navigating the Risks of Patient Refusals

The most critical clinical decisions a provider can make don’t happen at the devastating wreck or the cardiac arrest – they happen during a patient’s refusal, one of the most common outcomes of emergency response. A provider who fails to properly assess a patient who declines care, and who fails to properly document the encounter, significantly increases the chance of legal liability. Through a discussion of actual incidents and reported legal cases, an EMS Division Chief (Nick) and an attorney (Samantha) discuss assessment of patient capacity, documentation associated with refusals, and the legal impact of provider actions (or inactions) in refusal situations. Nick and Samantha offer tips and tricks for responders to protect themselves and their agencies from legal liability for patient refusals.

1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Capnography Capstone – More Than Just Numbers

This lecture will provide in-depth information, explained in basic and simple language so even a novice can learn the power of this important assessment tool by applying the information it provides to determine if the patient is sick or not sick. To understand the entire process of capnography one must also understand how and why carbon dioxide is produced by the body. Without this basic understanding it would be difficult to comprehend why the presentation of higher concentrations or lower concentration of CO2 can help in determining if a patient is sick or not sick and ultimately lead to efficient and rapid treatment of a sick patient.

1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
