Is anyone here aware of any formal training programs for pediatric sedation that last for a month or two? There is an increasing push for pediatric hospitalists to take over sedation services for minor procedures and scans, and so far the training programs they are using seems to be following the dental model (i.e. two days of training and then best of luck). I was wondering if anyone knew of an alternative that was more substantial.

ConclusionsThis study describes a modified method for whistling deformity reconstruction in uni- and bilateral clefts. The aesthetic results are based on a reconstruction of the subcutaneous muscle layers and the creation of a symmetrical lip contour and prolabium using transposition flaps from the lateral side of the cleft. The great advantage is the uncomplicated performance under local anesthesia, even for all children over 10 years, and the short operation time. Postoperative complications did not occur..
