Dr. Anthony Feck, DOCS Education's Dean of Faculty, will help answer this question in this 30-minute review of appropriate maximum medication doses and patient selection. This online course qualifies for .5 hours of CE credit that is automatically issued with a digital certificate once you have completed the program.
We based our Incremental Administration Technique on the pharmacological characteristics(109, 117) of several medications—all of which carry a large margin for safety. The majority of your patients will achieve adequate sedation with the average dose of these sedative medications. This course, by a PACE-approved provider, discusses how to treat the unique cases.
Attendees will learn:
- Understand the causes of hyporesponse
- Learn how to adjust for the hyporesponder
- Calculate the doses for the hyporesponder
Scientific support and additional resources are available here.
