SYNOPSIS:

This course is a recertification program geared towards how to safely provide oral conscious sedation for adult and pediatric patients through the study of physiology and pharmacology.

The course on Saturday will complete the 2 year requirement (7 CE hours) for recertification of adult oral sedation. Only recertification courses will be offered. This is NOT an initial certification course.

There will be a review of physiologic principles and how key features affect the administration of sedative medications in different patient populations. Emergency management will be covered in an realistic and applicable manner that reflects the likely scenarios to be encountered when introducing sedation to the dental office. There will be discourse into emergency prevention and proper office training.

This course will present and teach various medications, techniques, and combinations found in published literature, in addition to popular contemporary techniques, with an emphasis on evaluating risk benefit ratios for each. There will be a review on how patient selection and medication selection can help maximize success and reduce the stress of failed outcomes.

There will be an assessment of probabilities and statistics in relation to the dangers of sedation, and how to utilize this data to make purposeful treatment decisions.

UPON COMPLETION YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

  • Develop a broad knowledge base in the administration of oral conscious sedation.
  • Review the techniques and principles of sedation that help uncover the relationship between effectiveness and safety.
  • Provide established and novel concepts in sedation for the recertification of an Oral Conscious Sedation Permit in California.
