This course is designed to introduce licensed healthcare providers to techniques to safely incorporate the use of hypnotic agents for procedural sedation for ambulatory surgery and office based practices. Increase patient satisfaction and margin of safety by decreasing the amount of sedatives required and by virtually eliminating post operative nausea and vomiting. Patients are at less risk when recovery time is significantly decreased from hours to minutes.
*With the use of P/K anesthesia technique PONV (post operative nausea and vomiting) is decreased to less than 1% or 0.6% without the use of anti-emetics, 30% less anesthetic is required, outliers are eliminated, patient safety and satisfaction are dramatically improved.

What Participants Are Saying:
“The practice of medicine requires a lifetime commitment to learning and flexibility to provide the best care for our patients. Unfortunately, the practice of plastic surgery tends to be inflexible and focused on the use of general anesthesia which in my opinion is more for the surgeon’s convenience rather than the patient’s in many cases. As it has been my focus to perform natural aesthetic procedures which are safe, under local anesthesia with light sedation and with a quicker recovery, Dr. Friedberg’s contribution to my practice through his experience is truly appreciated.”

“Barry Friedberg, MD (Anesthesiologist) has masterfully developed the PK Anestheisa concept and he has honed this technique to perfection. Take his course!”
