Sedation: the Good, the Bad & the Ugly

Kenneth Reed, DMD

All forms of sedation will be reviewed, nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV sedation. Discussions of which technique is preferable for which patient types and procedures will be outlined. Training requirements will be highlighted for each of the levels of sedation. Adverse outcomes will be reviewed with strategies for prevention of these events. Finally, news reports and the influence of the media surrounding these events will be discussed.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) distinguish the four levels of sedation and anesthesia; 2) describe the training required for each level of sedation; and 3) discuss strategies for prevention of adverse occurrences.
