Synopsis:
A recent white paper by Sangrik for the American Academy of Dental Boards hypothesized that “medical emergencies during dental treatment are increasing in frequency, intensity and diversity” for reasons such as an aging and more medically complex patient population, more invasive dental treatment and an increasing trend of in-office sedation. Although medical emergency preparedness involves factors such as equipment, drugs, training and teamwork, the most important aspect involves a culture of safety within the dental office.

In recent years, the use of oral benzodiazepines such as triazolam and lorazepam (with or without nitrous oxide) for the diminution of perioperative anxiety and fear in dental patients has certainly increased. State dental boards, in response, have changed or developed new regulations outlining the training and equipment needed for in-office adult minimal sedation. Although state regulations for the provision of in-office adult minimal sedation vary widely with respect to training and pharmacological strategies, consonance exists on the use of inherently safe drugs, the use of pulse oximetry, and the availability of emergency equipment including pharmacologic antagonists.

This dynamic lecture will cover both of the primary reversal agents required when adult minimal sedation is being performed in the office. The pharmacological basis of therapeutics will be addressed, taking the principles of academia into the realm of clinical practice in an interactive and engaging multimedia presentation. Treatment strategies and protocols will be discussed in a comprehensive, case-based approach.

I feel like what I needed could have been said in 1/2 the amount of time but I can just watch at 1.7X speed. It has good info, and I can tell that the speaker cares. The quiz was fair.
