Sedation A Guide to Patient Management 5th Edition PDF
This book is divided into eight sections. Section I is introductory, presenting an outline of the “problem” that all members of the dental profession face: the problem of fear and anxiety, which confronts dentists throughout the world on a daily basis. Section II introduces the concept of sedation and of the spectrum of pain and anxiety control. The dental and medical professions have at their disposal a wide array of techniques that may be used in patient management. The availability of these to the dentist will increase the likelihood of a successful treatment outcome. Also included in Section II are chapters on preoperative physical evaluation of the patient and monitoring of the patient during the various sedative procedures. This section ends with an introduction to two nondrug techniques of sedation: iatrosedation and hypnosis. These techniques are extremely valuable in the management of virtually all patients. Sections III, IV, and V present an in-depth look at the subject of pharmacosedation. Section III presents discussions of several techniques of sedation, including oral, rectal, and intramuscular (IM).
Considerable attention is devoted to the clinical pharmacology of the drugs discussed in an effort to discourage the use of drugs that might be deemed inappropriate for certain procedures and to encourage the use of others that have proved to be safe and effective. Several drug categories (including the barbiturates) have been deemphasized in this Fifth Edition, reflecting changes in drug utilization in the area of sedation. At the same time, other categories, such as benzodiazepines, have become more prominent, reflecting their increasing usage in sedation in both medicine and dentistry.
