Adult Initial Sedation Certification (16 CE Hours)

Our Adult Initial Sedation Certification course is designed to satisfy the requirements set forth by TSBDE Rule 110.14. This educational program is a hybrid course consisting of online, didactic and hands-on clinical scenarios. Patient physical status assessment, focused physical exam, and various other medical considerations for enteral sedation. Pharmacology, physiology, and patient screening are heavily emphasized in the curriculum. Definitions of different levels of sedation continuum (Minimal, Mild, Moderate, Deep) are reviewed through clinical videos of patients going through each level. This continuing education program is completed with airway management of a sedated patient; office based medical emergencies and drug box assembly. Our interactive didactics along with simulated case scenarios using manikins produce a stress-free team-learning environment where practitioners develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become proficient sedation providers.

This program includes didactic instruction and a hands-on skills workshop in airway management utilizing simulation and multiple airway devices, in addition scenarios will be constructed and participants will be asked questions in regard to managing medical emergencies.
