High-Risk Sedation Update Program – San Marcos


Course Summary:  The program “Management of the High Risk Patient” is designed to satisfy TSBDE Rule 110.16.  This hybrid program consists of online preparation, class lecture and a hands-on component.  The hands-on component will be conducted with a combination of video observation and hands-on practice utilizing a high-fidelity manikin.

The sedation and emergency protocols are provided to help fulfill necessary requirements and to help facilitate patient and emergency management.  These methodologies are generalized and it's the doctor’s responsibility to individualize management. Care and research has been taken as much as possible.  But you must still evaluate and familiarize yourself with the material, review it for completeness and accuracy.  Any errors or omissions need to be corrected by the user, you should also notify the author regarding corrections. Additionally, continued hands-on practice is imperative. By utilizing any or all of this material, the user verifies that the material has been properly reviewed and that the author assumes no liability nor is liable in any manner in the utilization of the included material.
