Sedation: A Guide to Patient Management
This definitive, authoritative clinical manual stands alone in the field of patient sedation. Combining essential theory with technical instruction, it presents "everything in a nutshell" for the practicing professional and student of dentistry. Key factors such as the physical, emotional, and mental condition of the patient - as well as required ADA guidelines - are incorporated into sedation techniques designed to improve the patient's overall dental experience. The result is an indispensable book, expert in its professional protocols and techniques, and comprehensive in its wide-ranging considerations. Detailed chapters, divided into eight parts, are devoted to topics on: the problem of fear and anxiety in dentistry; pain and anxiety control; pharmacosedation; history and techniques of general anesthesia; inhalation and intravenous sedation, preparation and management of emergencies in the dental office; and sedation for special needs patients - pediatric, geriatric, and medical and physically compromised patients.
