PS09 Guidelines on Sedation and/or Analgesia

NSAIDs - clinical updateThis document is intended to apply wherever procedural sedation and/or analgesia for diagnostic and interventional medical, dental and surgical procedures are administered, but excludes situations where sedation is used for longer term management of patients such as in intensive care units or for psychiatrically disturbed patients.

The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) and all co-signing colleges/societies recognise that practitioners with diverse qualifications and training are administering a variety of medications to patients to allow such procedures to be performed. This document addresses pertinent issues for all practitioners involved in such activities.
