When it comes to the safety and efficacy of sedation, three of the most important subjects arguably include pharmacology, patient selection, and airway management. All three are tied intimately to patient safety, and pharmacology also has a great deal to do with sedation effectiveness.

Understanding the mechanisms of how drugs act, and how the body responds to their action are key to their safe and effective use.

Dr. Anthony Feck plunges into his favorite topic to share with you pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of a wide range of sedative agents. You learn why and how they work; why some are better than others; and the methods used to reverse the effects of each.
