Conscious sedation is produced by the administration of pharmacologic agents, by an route, that results in a depressed level on consciousness but allows the patient to independently maintain a patent airway and respond appropriately to verbal commands or physical stimulus.
Every practice setting should have policies and procedures in place.
They should be written, reviewed periodically, and readily available within the practice setting.
These policies and procedures provide guidelines for patient care, minimize risk factors, standardize practice, assist staff members, and establish guidelines for quality monitoring and quality improvement.
AORN states that “the RN monitoring the patient’s care be clinically competent in the function and in the use of resuscitation medications and monitoring equipment and be able to interpret the data obtained from the patient.”
