PS19 2020: Monitored care


Why another monitoring statement?

·         Many procedures performed with no anaesthetic, or local, or minimal sedation

·         Many procedures require IV injection or allergenic agents e.g. contrast

·         Proceduralist may want an anaesthetist present


Usual recommendations apply for the following:

·         Facilities and staffing

·         Pre-anaes consult

·         Sedation

·         Monitoring

·         Recovery

·         Documentation
