Guide for use:Help on this term

Staff performing sedation should comply with Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) standards (ANZCA 2014). Deep sedation and general anaesthesia may only be used in the presence of an anaesthetist or other appropriately trained and credentialed medical specialist within his/her scope of practice. Non-anaesthetist medical staff require adequate training in the safe and correct usage of sedation equipment and drugs, and in the management and monitoring of sedated patients in accordance with the guidelines.
