  • Set up the physical environment for procedural sedation, including use of monitoring devices, rescue adjuncts, and an appropriate staffing ratio to facilitate a safe sedation experience.
  • Use end-tidal capnography to provide early warning for adverse events like hypoventilation and apnea.
  • Articulate risks and benefits of procedural sedation medications, including ketamine, propofol, and etomidate, and be able to select an appropriate agent based on the clinical scenario.
