First of all I want to congratulate you for this magnificent work.  This is the most complete, comprehensive, understandable and well organized sedation course I have ever seen in the web. It covers all aspects for a SAFE sedation, very well organized and with very profound knowledge of the topics covered. I want to use it for the certification of my medical staff in my 5 institutions. One more time, congratulations to you and your team! I know a lot of patients will benefit from disseminating this important issue.
