Alpha Level 4

This course is designed to familiarize the doctors providing moderate sedation with all of the narcotics available.  This is a 3-day course for the seasoned practitioner that wants to learn and “experiment” with other narcotics in a controlled teaching environment.  We will use:

  • Fentanyl
  • Alfentanil
  • Sufentanil
  • Remifentanil
  • Meperidine (Demerol®)
  • Hydromorphone (Dilaudid®)
  • Morphine


There will be 3-4 moderate sedation cases scheduled every day.  Afternoons will be spent reviewing the pharmacology of each narcotic used that day.
