CME Webcast Provides Latest Update on Moderate and Deep Sedation

OSU Wexner Medical Center logo CME Webcast Provides Latest Update on Moderate and Deep Sedation. With the vast number of procedures performed each day, it is not always possible or necessary to have an anesthesiologist available to oversee sedation. Proceduralists can and do provide their own sedation while performing the procedure. On this webcast, we will review the very important topic of Moderate and Deep sedation. Here at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, a variety of specialists such as gastroenterologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists and more may view today’s program and complete the post-test to help obtain and maintain their hospital sedation privileges.

We’ve invited two guests on the program today. First, we have Associate Professor of Anesthesiology at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and director of Ambulatory Perioperative Services, Dr. Jarrett Heard. We also have Kristin Brower, Doctor of pharmacy and specialty practice pharmacist at Ohio State specializing in perioperative services where she works alongside both Anesthesiologists and Surgeons to care for patients.
