    Patient-Controlled Sedation by Non-Anaesthesiologists during Flexible Bronchoscopy-A One-Year Experience Regarding Safety, Feasibility and Costs
    Author(s): Benjamin Grossmann* and Andreas Nilsson

    Background: Patient-Controlled Sedation (PCS) is an efficient and cost-saving method for sedation during Flexible Bronchoscopy (FB) in the presence of anaesthetic staff, but no data is available for PCS in a non-anaesthesiologist environment. Methods: This descriptive study describes PCS with propofol in a non-anaesthesiologist setup during outpatient FB procedures, including transbronchial biopsy, transbronchial needle aspiration, cryotherapy/biopsy, and/or multistation endobronchial ultrasound, and endoscopic ultrasound with a bronchoscope. Results: 287 procedures were completed. The median (range) duration for the procedures was 45 (10-105) minutes. The median (range) total propofol dose administered was 201 (55-570) mg, and 61 procedures (21%) required bolus doses of alfentanil. Desaturation occurred during 21% of the procedures and was resolved spontaneously (59%) or by using a j.. Read More»
