Anesthesia Module


Patients demand not just effective anesthesia, but quality and safe sedation for high-level dental procedures. One of the most sought after programs among practitioners is a course in medical emergencies. Do you need a refresher course on the basic concepts of medical and dental emergencies? How about understanding the basics regarding the use and abuse of prescription medications? Are there any practitioners who never miss an inferior alveolar dental block on a regular basis, causing issues regarding treatment? There is no need to fear regarding sedation and anesthesia applications, because this continuing dental education module will boost your anesthesia skills so that many of your clinical problems will be a thing of the past. Review the basic pharmacology of anesthetics and prescription medications, and their application for a specific type of patient. This module course will display a number of patient types exhibiting problematic anesthesia and sedation issues and to demonstrate how dentists can overcome these problems. Several clinical cases will be presented to help the participant compare and contrast problems relating to anything in the anesthesia and sedation realm.
