Sedation for the Chronic Marijuana User - On Demand Access
Cannabis is the most popular illicit drug worldwide. While the DEA still classifies it as a Schedule I controlled substance, it is now legal in many states – with cannabis use still on the rise in the U.S. This increase is particularly seen in high school and college-age students. OMSs will likely encounter patients who use cannabis, affecting the administration and effects of anesthesia – including local anesthesia, nitrous oxide and intravenous sedation/anesthesia. It is important for OMSs to understand how to manage patients who use cannabis. During this 60-minute webinar, participants will learn the pharmacologic and physiologic effects of cannabis, different intake methods and how cannabis can affect office-based anesthesia.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Explain the different forms of cannabis intake.
- Describe the pharmacologic and physiologic effects of cannabis.
- Discuss how marijuana use affects office-based anesthesia.
