Pediatric Nitrous Oxide Administration Training Course

This course was designed to increase health care providers’ knowledge of the pharmacology, clinical effects, and clinical applications of nitrous oxide in pediatric procedural sedation. Using interactive scenarios and observing administration of nitrous oxide during patient care, the learner will gain understanding of appropriate use of nitrous oxide for pediatric medical procedural sedation. This two-day course is intended to provide sedation practitioners with the basic knowledge and core competencies that promote safe and effective nitrous oxide procedural sedation to children. The course has been designed to meet the needs of the experienced sedation provider seeking both cognitive (didactic) and psychomotor (simulation) based education and training.
