About this book

This is a major revision, updating, and expansion of the leading single-source volume on pediatric sedation outside of the operating room. Edited and written by an international roster of outstanding experts, it is the only book aimed at the broad range of specialists who deliver pediatric sedation in the non-OR setting.

The Second Edition features a significant expansion of contributions from international leaders and individual new chapters on pre-sedation assessment; sedatives’ short- and long-term effects on neurocognition; non-pharmacologic distractions; Michael Jackson’s death and medical ethics; the role of simulation in safety and training; and palliative sedation in terminally ill children.

The specialty-specific chapters continue to be geared toward all sedation providers, regardless of where they practice and patient safety is again emphasized. Fundamental chapters provide in-depth reviews of topics which include, among others, physiology and pharmacology. The book presents the latest guidelines across the specialties, both in the United States and abroad and noteworthy, ongoing research endeavors.

From reviews of the First Edition:

“This meritorious volume is a splendid collection of materials from highly experienced authors…I will make extensive use of this reference as the academic medical center in which I work continues to build sedation practices and assess credentialing/privileging aspects for professionals of all fields.” —Joseph R. Tobin, MD in Journal of the American Medical Association.

“Brings together sedation practice from a broad range of specialties into one well-written pediatric text…I will certainly be using this book as a reference text in the future.” — Pediatric Anesthesia.

“The first [text] directed at all specialists that treat children who require some sedation…also recognizes the contributions to pediatric sedation of many international societies and governmental organizations…It should be on the shelves of all office-based practices.” —Journal of Neurosurgical Anesthesiology.

"With the ever-increasing opportunities to perform various investigations and therapeutic procedures, combined with increasing demands and expectations from children and their parents, the need and demand for safe and effective sedation of paediatric patients outside the operating room is increasing. Against this background, the second edition of ‘Pediatric Sedation Outside the Operating Room’ is a very timely addition to the anaesthesia literature."—British Journal of Anesthesia

Reviews

“The book is well suited for basic teaching of residents but also contains useful information for the board-certified practitioner. … this book should be available in all anaesthesia departments that deal with anaesthesia and sedation for children and in many other medical departments that are involved with sedation of paediatric patients, such as radiology and emergency rooms. For clinicians who are more frequently involved with paediatric sedation, this book should be an almost mandatory part of their personal library.” (P.-A. Lönnqvist, British Journal of Anaesthesia, Vol. 114 (4), April, 2016)
