Hi, we use the sedation team and propofol during the week. We have to schedule these appointments in advance. If we have an emergent need, or it is the weekend, the anesthesiologist does it in the OR induction room. Sometimes if it is a LP only, and there is no sedation team available, the nurse does moderate sedation with versed and fentanyl. We have been trained on how to do this. The sedation team consists of a sedation RN and an anesthesiologist. The staff nurse is not involved in these sedations. I hope that helps!

Curious what your institution’s process is for Moderate Sedation for LP and Bone Marrow procedures. Do your Hem/Onc nurses assist with sedation and monitoring on the unit? If sedation is done on the unit are you using Propofol? Does Anesthesia or PICU intensivists provide sedation in a procedural area?
Looking at best practice and standardization.
Thank you in advance!
