Sedation Simulator is a computer program designed for nonanesthesiologists to practice the management of conscious sedation. Conscious sedation is the use of appropriate medication to produce a controlled state of depressed consciousness, while maintaining protective reflexes, adequate cardiopulmonary function, and appropriate response to verbal command and tactile stimulation. Clinical goals are to produce amnesia, sedation, analgesia, and obtundation of autonomic reflexes for patients undergoing noxious diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
