Minimal sedation, previously known as anxiolysis, can be achieved through enteral medications, nitrous oxide and oxygen, or a combination of both methods. The challenge for practitioners aiming to administer minimal sedation lies in developing personalized protocols for each patient that ensure safety and effectiveness. When using nitrous oxide and oxygen alone, the task is relatively simple as the concentration of nitrous oxide can be adjusted to achieve the desired effect. However, oral medications pose a greater challenge as they cannot be titrated, leaving practitioners to rely on their professional judgment to determine the appropriate dosage.

In addition to understanding the appropriate medication and dosage, it is crucial to carefully choose suitable candidates and implement pre-procedural protocols, including intake forms, review of medical history, obtaining informed consent, and providing pre-operative instructions. By establishing effective systems within the office to select appropriate patients and personalize the sedation protocol, it becomes possible to optimize outcomes and achieve the best possible results. This course, part one of a two-part series, centers around the development of a tailored minimal sedation protocol for eligible candidates. Focusing on patient safety and effectiveness, the course explores pre-procedural factors that must be considered when selecting patients for minimal sedation. Once suitable patients have been identified, the course delves into tools for determining the optimal sedative dose for the initial minimal sedation appointment. The PowerPoint presentation includes multiple patient videos that serve as illustrative examples for evaluating and managing minimal sedation patients.
