Nurses can safely administer propofol sedation in ASC settings with physician supervision — 5 study insights
from Becker's ASC Review
A study, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, examined factors related to nurse-administered propofol sedation in 9,152 endoscopic cases at ASCs. With an anesthesiologist's assistance, researchers developed a protocol for nurses to administer propofol in routine endoscopic cases with physician supervision. The study took place at a private ASC in Medford, Oregon.
