Art / Science of Propofol-Remifentanil Infusions for Office-based, Open Airway Anesthesia - 504

Art / Science of Propofol-Remifentanil Infusions for Office-based, Open Airway Anesthesia - 504

Presenter: Robert C. Bosack, DDS

This presentation will introduce the art of administering a propofol-remifentanil admixture by microbolus and continuous infusion to achieve a dose-dependent choice of moderate sedation, deep sedation or general anesthesia. Doses, caveats, limitations, complications and monitoring during this exciting technique will be reviewed. The premise is obvious: when used properly, this technique markedly improves anesthetic control for both short and long cases, thereby increasing safety.

 
Intravenous Sedation Techniques   -   402

Intravenous Sedation Techniques - 402

Presenter: Stuart E. Lieblich, DMD

The use of intravenous sedation techniques is quite popular in many dental offices because of the need, efficacy and safety of various techniques. This presentation will provide a timely review of current and popular techniques, with special attention given to the prevention, recognition and prevention of adverse side effects.

 
Beyond Total IV Anesthesia with the LMA   -   501

Beyond Total IV Anesthesia with the LMA - 501

Presenter: Robert Campbell, DDS

This one hour program reviews intravenous and inhalational agents for office based anesthesia used in conjunction with the laryngeal mask airway. Criteria for airway classification are discussed. The placement of the LMA is demonstrated. Caveats and complications are reviewed.

 
 
Propofol and Infusion Pumps   -   503

Propofol and Infusion Pumps - 503

Presenter: Robert C. Bosack, DDS

Propofol has rapidly become a drug of choice for sedation and anesthesia in the dental office. This program will review the pharmacology of this agent as well as its use with an infusion pump.

 
Practice Makes You Perfect: The Role of Simulation in Anesthesia Training   -   201

Practice Makes You Perfect: The Role of Simulation in Anesthesia Training - 201

Presenter: Steve Schimmele, DDS

This course is an introduction to the emerging field of simulation of emergency management in anesthesia. This developing field provides practitioners with the unique opportunity to refine their emergency management skills in a controlled environment in order to improve proficiency in anesthetic techniques while minimizing patient risk exposure.

 
Oral Sedation: Pre-emptive Anxiolysis   -   401

Oral Sedation: Pre-emptive Anxiolysis - 401

Presenter: Stuart E. Lieblich, DMD

It is a well known and accepted fact that many patients avoid necessary dental care because of anxiety associated with the delivery of that care. Pre-emptive anxiolysis can increase patient cooperation, improve anesthetic induction, maintenance and recovery and attenuate the sometimes harmful adverse autonomic responses. Specific clinical techniques will be addressed in this presentation.

 
 
Local Anesthesia: Troubleshooting the Mandibular Block - 219

Local Anesthesia: Troubleshooting the Mandibular Block - 219

Presenter: Stanley F. Malamed, DDS

Profound Anesthesia of the mandible can prove elusive. Various techniques, including the inferior alveolar nerve block (NB), the Gow Gates mandibular NB, the incisive NB, and the Akinosi-Vazirani closed mouth NB are described. The success of articaine HCl by mandibular infiltration is reviewed.

 
Oral Sedation in Dentistry - 220

Oral Sedation in Dentistry - 220

Presenter: Stanley F. Malamed, DDS

Fear of dentistry is commonplace.  Untreated fear produces medical emergencies. Managing dental fear through oral sedation is discussed including recommended drugs and a regimen for administration.

 
Introduction to Capnography - 221

Introduction to Capnography - 221

Presenter: H. William Gottschalk, DDS

Capnography is the measurement of carbon dioxide in expired air. In the dental office. As it is the most accurate and efficient method to monitor ventilation, it has now become the standard of care for all levels of office-based anesthesia or sedation. This course will ready the dental practitioner to correctly interpret the valuable information that capnography provides.

 
 
Guided Simulation / Team Training in your office - 200

Guided Simulation / Team Training in your office - 200

Presenter: Karen Crowley, DDS

Simulation has been shown to be beneficial in reducing medical error and improving healthcare quality and patient safety. This program will facilitate learning, practicing and perfecting various emergency scenarios without harm to "simulated" pateints. Frequent physical rehearsal in the environment that task and team performance are required is the most efficient and effective method to acquire these skills.
