Clinical practice guideline for the management of sedation outside of operating room in patients over 12 years
Sedation is a practice frequently used in multiple settings outside the operating room. Currently, it is employed by different interdisciplinary groups. It is imperative to ensure safe, standardized practices and proper training of the personnel involved.
To update available information, create minimum standards of care for performing high-quality sedation procedures based on the best available evidence. These standards lead to safe and effective care practices, reducing unjustified variability.
Materials and methods:
A group of different health professionals with experience in sedation outside the operating room and representatives of scientific and patient societies developed the guideline. Through a non-formal consensus of thematic and methodological experts, the content, scope and objectives, study populations, and questions to be examined were all defined. A systematic review of the literature was performed to formulate the recommendations with graduated levels of evidence in accordance with GRADE methodology.
A summarized version of the Clinical Practice Guideline with recommendations for the administration of sedation as part of diagnostic or therapeutic procedures outside the operating room in patients over the age of 12.
The Clinical Practice Guideline presents evidence-based recommendations in order to standardize the procedure, improving the quality of care, and reducing morbidity of patients that require sedation outside of the operating room.
