Sedation guidelines: a record of sedation scores is essential
AbstractPublication of the SASA Sedation Guidelines 2010(1) (the Guidelines) is a welcome update. There is however a glaring deficiency, namely that no mention is made of the importance of regular assessment of the degree of sedation during procedures. Furthermore, there is no provision made for the writing down thereof on the included “Sedation-Monitoring Chart”.
