    Exclamation Conscious Sedation in office setting

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi all...we are considering the option of doing procedures requiring CS in the office versus an ASC...is anyone aware of any certification requirements for this? Thanks.

    It depends on what state you are from. Pennsylvania does not require certification for cs but they do require certification for fluroscopy.

    Thanks....we are in Ohio...we already have a C-Arm we are certified to utilize...what I did find is that if we are doing invasive surgical procedures requiring CS, then we do have to be accredited....per Ohio Administrative Code Section 4731-25-01 thru 07...please let me know if I am misunderstanding this (for anyone who has experience in Ohio)...thanks so much.
