Is sedation by non-anaesthetists really safe?
Conway, Aaron (2014) Is sedation by non-anaesthetists really safe? British Journal of Anaesthesia, 112(3), pp. 583-584.
I read with great interest the editorial recently published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia that questioned whether sedation by non-anaesthetists is really safe. The authors noted their ‘grave concerns’ about the emerging practice of non-anaesthetist administered propofol (NAAP) during electrophysiology procedures. I offer the following insights into this issue.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
