Description

The goals of procedural sedation (PSA) stretch far beyond providing just sedation and analgesia. Practices need to strive to treat adults and children with dignity, decreasing their anxiety levels, providing adequate pain control, preventing adverse events, while maintaining proper cardiorespiratory function.(1) Safety is crucial. Protection of the airway is vital to ensure patient safety. In dental sedation, the airway is usually shared by the sedation practitioner and the dentist. Understanding the importance of the airway and a basic knowledge of the anatomy is necessary. Protecting the patient against hypoxia is imperative. This article will review critical aspects of laryngospasm (a form of airway obstruction), which may threaten patient safety, and will discuss how to rescue the patient during dental sedation.

Objectives

Objectives:
1. Core competency: Recognise, explain and demonstrate the immediate management of common complications associated with sedation, in particular laryngospasm.
2. Demonstrate the immediate management of common adverse events associated with sedation.
3. Understand the significance of changes in physiological variables before, during and after sedation.
4. Recognize the importance of safe recovery and appropriate discharge criteria.
5. Competence in carrying out safe sedation techniques.
