The American Society of Anesthesiologists lists four levels of sedation and analgesia: minimal sedation/anxiolysis, moderate sedation/analgesia, deep sedation/analgesia, and general anesthesia. Of these, minimal sedation/anxiolysis is most relevant to urgent care centers. Urgent care centers may provide local anesthesia, which can be administered topically or as infiltration anesthesia. In this course, the definitions of procedural sedation, office-based surgery, minimal sedation/anxiolysis, and local anesthesia will be given. Best practices and guidelines provided by American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, and other organizations will be discussed. Rules and regulations provided by the federal government and by the states will also be covered.
