Endorsement of Position Statement on the Role of the Registered Nurse (RN) in the Management of Patients Receiving IV Conscious Sedation for Short-Term Therapeutic, Diagnostic, or Surgical Procedures: The American Nursing Association.:"Intravenous conscious sedation is produced by the administration of pharmacologic agents. A patient under conscious sedation has a depressed level of consciousness, but retains the ability to independently and continuously maintain a patent airway and respond appropriately to physical stimulation and/or verbal command."
http://www.ana.org/readroom/position/joint/jtsedate.htm

******************************************************

Administration of Conscious Sedation, Michael Kost, CRNA, MSN:"Nurse anesthetists in ORs are no longer the only nurses administering sedation. Healthcare reform has changed that exclusive practice pattern. Shrinking reimbursement for diagnostic procedures, the elimination of anesthesia payment for clinical services, and limitations on hospital access for minor diagnostic and surgical procedures have boosted the number of conscious sedation procedures performed in the US.1"

American Dental Association: Guidelines For The Use Of Conscious Sedation, Deep Sedation And General Anesthesia For Dentists"The purpose of these guidelines is to allow dentists to provide their patients with the benefits of anxiety and pain control in a safe and efficacious manner. These guidelines are not intended to include the use of nitrous oxide/oxygen when used alone and/or with local anesthesia."
