Conscious Sedation: A drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients respond purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimulation. No interventions are required to maintain a patent airway. (From: American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines)Anesthesia, Dental: A range of methods used to reduce pain and anxiety during dental procedures.Hypnotics and Sedatives: Drugs used to induce drowsiness or sleep or to reduce psychological excitement or anxiety.Deep Sedation: Drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients cannot be easily aroused but respond purposely following repeated painful stimulation. The ability to independently maintain ventilatory function may be impaired. (From: American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines)Midazolam: A short-acting hypnotic-sedative drug with anxiolytic and amnestic properties. It is used in dentistry, cardiac surgery, endoscopic procedures, as preanesthetic medication, and as an adjunct to local anesthesia. The short duration and cardiorespiratory stability makes it useful in poor-risk, elderly, and cardiac patients. It is water-soluble at pH less than 4 and lipid-soluble at physiological pH.Hydroxyzine: A histamine H1 receptor antagonist that is effective in the treatment of chronic urticaria, dermatitis, and histamine-mediated pruritus. Unlike its major metabolite CETIRIZINE, it does cause drowsiness. It is also effective as an antiemetic, for relief of anxiety and tension, and as a sedative.Propofol: An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.Preanesthetic Medication: Drugs administered before an anesthetic to decrease a patient's anxiety and control the effects of that anesthetic.Anesthetics, Intravenous: Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately. Repeated administration results in accumulation and prolongs the recovery time. Since these agents have little if any analgesic activity, they are seldom used alone except in brief minor procedures.

Prolonged use may lead to dependence of the morphine type; withdrawal symptoms appear more rapidly than with morphine and are of shorter duration.Chloral Hydrate: A hypnotic and sedative used in the treatment of INSOMNIA.Endoscopy, Digestive System: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the digestive tract.Dentistry, Operative: That phase of clinical dentistry concerned with the restoration of parts of existing teeth that are defective through disease, trauma, or abnormal development, to the state of normal function, health, and esthetics, including preventive, diagnostic, biological, mechanical, and therapeutic techniques, as well as material and instrument science and application. (Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 2d ed, p237)Burns, Electric: Burns produced by contact with electric current or from a sudden discharge of electricity.Anesthesia, Intravenous: Process of administering an anesthetic through injection directly into the bloodstream.Diazepam: A benzodiazepine with anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, sedative, muscle relaxant, and amnesic properties and a long duration of action. Its actions are mediated by enhancement of GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID activity.Dental Implantation: The grafting or inserting of a prosthetic device of alloplastic material into the oral tissue beneath the mucosal or periosteal layer or within the bone. Its purpose is to provide support and retention to a partial or complete denture.Manifest Anxiety Scale: True-false questionnaire made up of items believed to indicate anxiety, in which the subject answers verbally the statement that describes him.Gastric Balloon: An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.Dexmedetomidine: A imidazole derivative that is an agonist of ADRENERGIC ALPHA-2 RECEPTORS. It is closely-related to MEDETOMIDINE, which is the racemic form of this compound.Nitrous Oxide: Nitrogen oxide (N2O). A colorless, odorless gas that is used as an anesthetic and analgesic. High concentrations cause a narcotic effect and may replace oxygen, causing death by asphyxia. It is also used as a food aerosol in the preparation of whipping cream.Endoscopy, Gastrointestinal: Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract.Fentanyl: A potent narcotic analgesic, abuse of which leads to habituation or addiction. It is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. Fentanyl is also used as an adjunct to general anesthetics, and as an anesthetic for induction and maintenance.

Bilateral neck exploration under hypnosedation: a new standard of care in primary hyperparathyroidism? (1/663)

OBJECTIVE: The authors review their experience with initial bilateral neck exploration under local anesthesia and hypnosedation for primary hyperparathyroidism. Efficacy, safety, and cost effectiveness of this new approach are examined. BACKGROUND: Standard bilateral parathyroid exploration under general anesthesia is associated with significant risk, especially in an elderly population. Image-guided unilateral approaches, although theoretically less invasive, expose patients to the potential risk of missing multiple adenomas or asymmetric hyperplasia. Initial bilateral neck exploration under hypnosedation may maximize the strengths of both approaches while minimizing their weaknesses. METHODS: In a consecutive series of 121 initial cervicotomies for primary hyperparathyroidism performed between 1995 and 1997, 31 patients were selected on the basis of their own request to undergo a conventional bilateral neck exploration under local anesthesia and hypnosedation. Neither preoperative testing of hypnotic susceptibility nor expensive localization studies were done. A hypnotic state (immobility, subjective well-being, and increased pain thresholds) was induced within 10 minutes; restoration of a fully conscious state was obtained within several seconds. Patient comfort and quiet surgical conditions were ensured by local anesthesia of the collar incision and minimal intravenous sedation titrated throughout surgery. Both peri- and postoperative records were examined to assess the safety and efficacy of this new approach. RESULTS: No conversion to general anesthesia was needed. No complications were observed. All the patients were cured with a mean follow-up of 18 +/- 12 months. Mean operating time was <1 hour. Four glands were identified in 84% of cases, three glands in 9.7%. Adenomas were found in 26 cases; among these, 6 were ectopic. Hyperplasia, requiring subtotal parathyroidectomy and transcervical thymectomy, was found in five cases (16.1%), all of which had gone undetected by localization studies when requested by the referring physicians. Concomitant thyroid lobectomy was performed in four cases. Patient comfort and recovery and surgical conditions were evaluated on visual analog scales as excellent. Postoperative analgesic consumption was minimal. Mean length of hospital stay was 1.5 +/- 0.5 days. CONCLUSIONS: Initial bilateral neck exploration for primary hyperparathyroidism can be performed safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively under hypnosedation, which may therefore be proposed as a new standard of care.  (+info)

A risk management audit: are we complying with the national guidelines for sedation by non-anaesthetists? (2/663)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of a preprinted form in ensuring an improved and sustained quality of documentation of clinical data in compliance with the national guidelines for sedation by non-anaesthetists. DESIGN: The process of retrospective case note audit was used to identify areas of poor performance, reiterate national guidelines, introduce a post-sedation advice sheet, and demonstrate improvement. SETTING: Emergency Department, Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton. SUBJECTS: Forty seven patients requiring sedation for relocation of a dislocated shoulder or manipulation of a Colles' fracture between July and October 1996 and July and October 1997. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Evidence that the following items had been documented: consent for procedure, risk assessment, monitored observations, prophylactic use of supplementary oxygen, and discharging patients with printed advice. Case note review was performed before (n = 23) and after (n = 24) the introduction of a sedation audit form. Notes were analysed for the above outcome measures. The monitored observations analysed included: pulse oximetry, respiratory rate, pulse rate, blood pressure, electrocardiography, and conscious level. RESULTS: Use of the form significantly improved documentation of most parameters measured. CONCLUSIONS: Introduction of the form, together with staff education, resulted in enhanced documentation of data and improved conformity with national guidelines. A risk management approach to preempting critical incidents following sedation, can be adopted in this area of emergency medicine.  (+info)

Sedation depends on the level of sensory block induced by spinal anaesthesia. (3/663)

We have investigated the relationship between the extent of spinal block and occurrence of sedation. In a first series of 43 patients, the distribution of sedation score (measured on the Ramsey scale) was related to the extent of spinal block (pinprick). In a second series of 33 patients, the relationship between sedation score and spinal block persisted after injection of midazolam 1 mg. This study confirmed that high spinal block was associated with increased sedation.  (+info)

Feasibility of endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms with local anesthesia with intravenous sedation. (4/663)

PURPOSE: Local anesthesia has been shown to reduce cardiopulmonary mortality and morbidity rates in patients who undergo selected peripheral vascular procedures. The efforts to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) with endovascular techniques have largely been driven by the desire to reduce the mortality and morbidity rates as compared with those associated with open aneurysm repair. Early results have indicated a modest degree of success in this goal. The purpose of this study was to investigate the feasibility of endovascular repair of AAAs with local anesthesia. METHODS: During a 14-month period, 47 patients underwent endovascular repair of infrarenal AAAs with local anesthesia that was supplemented with intravenous sedation. Anesthetic monitoring was selective on the basis of comorbidities. The patient ages ranged from 48 to 93 years (average age, 74.4 +/- 9.8 years). Of the 47 patients, 55% had significant coronary artery disease, 30% had significant chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and 13% had diabetes. The average anesthesia grade was 3.1, with 30% of the patients having an average anesthesia grade of 4. The mean aortic aneurysm diameter was 5.77 cm (range, 4.5 to 12.0 cm). All the implanted grafts were bifurcated in design. RESULTS: Endovascular repair of the infrarenal AAA was successful for all 47 patients. One patient required the conversion to general anesthesia to facilitate the repair of an injured external iliac artery via a retroperitoneal approach. The operative mortality rate was 0. No patient had a myocardial infarction or had other cardiopulmonary complications develop in the perioperative period. The average operative time was 170 minutes, and the average blood loss was 623 mL (range, 100 to 2500 mL). The fluid requirements averaged 2491 mL. Of the 47 patients, 46 (98%) tolerated oral intake and were ambulatory within 24 hours of graft implantation. The patients were discharged from the hospital an average of 2.13 days after the procedure, with 87% of the patients discharged less than 48 hours after the graft implantation. Furthermore, at least 30% of the patients could have been discharged on the first postoperative day except for study protocol requirements for computed tomographic scanning at 48 hours. CONCLUSION: This is the first reported series that describes the use of local anesthesia for the endovascular repair of infrarenal AAAs. Our preliminary results indicate that the endovascular treatment of AAAs with local anesthesia is feasible and can be performed safely in a patient population with significant comorbidities. The significant potential advantages include decreased cardiopulmonary morbidity rates, shorter hospital stays, and lower hospital costs. A definitive evaluation of the benefits of local anesthesia will necessitate a direct comparison with other anesthetic techniques.  (+info)

Epidurography and therapeutic epidural injections: technical considerations and experience with 5334 cases. (5/663)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Even in experienced hands, blind epidural steroid injections result in inaccurate needle placement in up to 30% of cases. The use of fluoroscopy and radiologic contrast material provides confirmation of accurate needle placement within the epidural space. We describe our technique and experience with contrast epidurography and therapeutic epidural steroid injections, and review the frequency of systemic and neurologic complications. METHODS: Epidural steroid injections were performed in 5489 consecutive outpatients over a period of 5 1/2 years by three procedural neuroradiologists. In 155 cases (2.8%), the injections were done without contrast material owing to either confirmed or suspected allergy. The remaining 5334 injections were performed after epidurography through the same needle. Patients and referring clinicians were instructed to contact us first regarding complications or any problem potentially related to the injection. In addition, the referring clinicians' offices were instructed to contact us regarding any conceivable procedure-related complications. RESULTS: Only 10 patients in the entire series required either oral (n = 5) or intravenous (n = 5) sedation. Four complications (0.07%) required either transport to an emergency room (n = 2) or hospitalization (n = 2). None of the complications required surgical intervention, and all were self-limited with regard to symptoms and imaging manifestations. Fluoroscopic needle placement and epidurography provided visual confirmation of accurate needle placement, distribution of the injectate, and depiction of epidural space disease. CONCLUSION: Epidurography in conjunction with epidural steroid injections provides for safe and accurate therapeutic injection and is associated with an exceedingly low frequency of untoward sequelae. It can be performed safely on an outpatient basis and does not require sedation or special monitoring.  (+info)

Intranasal midazolam plasma concentration profile and its effect on anxiety associated with dental procedures. (6/663)

The objectives of this study were to describe the serum concentration time profile for midazolam following intranasal administration to adult dental surgery patients and to ascertain the effect of midazolam on anxiety. Six female patients received a single 20 mg (0.32 to 0.53 mg/kg) dose of midazolam. Blood samples were collected at 5, 10, 20, 30, 45, and 60 min following dose administration. Midazolam plasma concentrations were determined by gas chromatography. Anxiety was evaluated using a 100-mm visual analogue scale. The maximum concentration of midazolam was reached 25.8 min (range 18 to 35 min) following dose administration. Maximum concentrations were variable. However, there was no relationship between the weight-adjusted dose and maximal concentration. Patients experiencing baseline anxiety exhibited a trend toward reduction in their measured anxiety score (P = 0.06). Plasma concentrations above the hypothesized minimum effective concentration for sedative effects were attained when midazolam was administered intranasally to adult dental patients.  (+info)

Comparison of oral chloral hydrate with intramuscular ketamine, meperidine, and promethazine for pediatric sedation--preliminary report. (7/663)

Fifteen consecutive pediatric patients ranging from 3 to 5 years old were selected to receive one of three sedative/hypnotic techniques. Group 1 received oral chloral hydrate 50 mg/kg, and groups 2 and 3 received intramuscular ketamine 2 mg/kg and 3 mg/kg, respectively. In addition to ketamine, patients in groups 2 and 3 received transmucosal intramuscular injections of meperidine and promethazine into the masseter muscle. Sedation for the satisfactory completion of restorative dentistry was obtained for over 40 min on average in the chloral hydrate group, but completion of dental surgery longer than 40 min was achieved in groups 2 and 3 only by intravenous supplements of ketamine.  (+info)

Illinois Dental Anesthesia and Sedation Survey for 1996. (8/663)

Dentists in the state of Illinois who possess a permit to administer sedation or general anesthesia were surveyed. A 71% response rate was achieved. Of the respondents, 86% held permits for deep sedation/general anesthesia and 14% held permits for parenteral conscious sedation. By practice specialty, 84% were oral and maxillofacial surgeons, 11% were general dentists, 5% were periodontists, and fewer than 1% were dental anesthesiologists. Advanced Cardiac Life Support training was possessed by 85% of the respondents. The most common anesthesia team configuration (82%) was a single operator-anesthetist and two additional assistants. Only 4% reported use of a nurse anesthetist, and 2% used an additional MD or DDS anesthesiologist. The vast majority (97%) of the practitioners do not intubate in the office on a routine basis. Supplemental oxygen was used by 81% of the respondents whenever intravenous agents were used. A total of 151,335 anesthetics were administered during the year. One mortality occurred in a patient with an undisclosed pre-existing cardiac condition. Four other events were reported that required medical intervention or hospital evaluation; however, no permanent injuries were reported. Other practice characteristics were described.  (+info)

UCLA scientists have found that conscious sedation - a type of anesthesia in which patients remain awake but are sleepy and pain-free - is a safe and viable option to general anesthesia for people undergoing a minimally invasive heart procedure called transcatheter aortic valve replacement.. In the study, patients who underwent conscious sedation had a similar rate of adverse events to those who underwent anesthesia, but those who were given conscious sedation had shorter stays in the intensive care unit (30 versus 96 hours for those with general anesthesia) and shorter hospital stays (4.9 days versus 10.4 days). The direct costs for their care were 28 percent lower, and almost all other medical costs were lower as well. In both groups, 1.5 percent of patients died during hospitalization.. ...

Introduction A proportion of patients presenting to emergency centres need to undergo procedures that can be unpleasant and painful. The provision of safe and effective analgesia and procedural sedation is a critical aspect of the provision of care in an emergency centre. Given the nature of an emergency centre, which is often overwhelming and noisy and appears chaotic to patients, the entire clinical experience for the patient and ultimately outcome can be improved if appropriate and effective procedural sedation is provided. The Emergency Medicine Society of South Africa (EMSSA) recognised the lack of uniformity on this topic1 and set up an expert panel responsible for the drafting of this practice guideline. This document is intended as a guide for emergency medicine specialists and all medical practitioners involved in the provision of emergency procedural sedation in emergency centres in South Africa. Procedural sedation definition Procedural sedation refers to a technique of administering ...
Inhalation sedation is particularly useful for anxious children. Children must be able to understand the purpose and mechanisms (in appropriate terminology) of inhalation sedation, so the minimum age for treating children under inhalation sedation is approximately three years. This is usually the lowest age at which the child has an appropriate degree of understanding to enable sufficient co‐operation for treatment. Older children scheduled for orthodontic extractions may also benefit from inhalation sedation. Such children may not be particularly frightened of routine treatment but multiple extractions of permanent teeth or surgical procedures, such as the exposure of canines, can be somewhat traumatic. Sedation can help to make the procedure more acceptable and the time pass more quickly.. Another key indication for inhalation sedation is the treatment of adults who have a general (as opposed to dental) phobia of needles or injections. Such individuals find it impossible to accept ...
Oral sedation dentistry is a medical procedure involving the administration of oral sedative drugs, generally to facilitate a dental procedure and reduce patients fear and anxiety related to the experience. Oral sedation is one of the available methods of conscious sedation dentistry, along with inhalation sedation (nitrous oxide) and conscious intravenous sedation. Drugs which can be used for sedation include diazepam, triazolam, zaleplon, lorazepam, and hydroxyzine. Dental patients with generalized anxiety, belonephobia (fear of needles and sharp instruments), prior dental trauma, or generalized fear of the dentist can take oral medication in order to reduce their anxieties. A variety of single and incremental dose protocols are used to medicate the patient as early as the day before treatment. Medication additionally helps reduce memory or the sights and smells of the dental office to avoid recall of any trauma. The sedative effect allows more dentistry to be completed in fewer appointments ...
However, most of these patients can be treated without the need for general anesthesia. Local anesthesia in combination with any form of conscious dental sedation (using nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or iv sedation) are enough to provide an adequate level of relaxation and comfort during dental procedures for the majority of patients.. In recent years, the progress in the technology of sedative drugs and conscious sedation protocols have reduced significantly the number of patients who can not be treated using other more conservative sedation methods and still require the use of dental general anesthesia to tolerate dental treatment..

Objectives: Outcomes associated with a sedative regimen comprised ketamine + propofol for pediatric procedural sedation outside of both the pediatric emergency department and operating room are underreported. We used the Pediatric Sedation Research Consortium database to describe a multicenter experience with ketamine + propofol by pediatric sedation providers. Design: Prospective observational study of children receiving IV ketamine + propofol for procedural sedation outside of the operating room and emergency department using data abstracted from the Pediatric Sedation Research Consortium during 2007-2015. Setting: Procedural sedation services from academic, community, free-standing childrens hospitals, and pediatric wards within general hospitals. Patients: Children from birth to less than or equal to 21 years old. Interventions: None. Measurements and Main Results: A total of 7,313 pediatric procedural sedations were performed using IV ketamine + propofol as the primary sedative regimen. ...

Some practitioners use and recommend intravenous conscious sedation using titrated midazolam, supplemented with local block or infiltrative anaesthesia. Cosmetic surgeon Dr Rakesh Kalra advocates in his study Use of barbed threads in facial rejuvenation in the Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery, in 2008, that this is the best way to perform cog thread insertion.5 I believe this is likely to be because, apart from achieving greater patient comfort, there is subsequent patient amnesia which improves the patient experience as they are unaware of the pain.5 In my experience, this results in greater patient retention and a higher rate of uptake of re-treatment. Intravenous conscious sedation must be carried out in appropriately-equipped premises for resuscitation and recovery, with staff who are trained and experienced in resuscitation and patient recovery procedures.. The practitioner can use a variety of infiltration anaesthetic sites and there are a number of vasoconstrictors available based on ...

Conscious sedation in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve replacement is safe and, not surprisingly, leads to shorter ICU and overall hospital stays, a new study suggests. Importantly, these gains were also associated with significant savings across all cost categories when compared with propensity-matched patients who received general anesthesia.. "Our main goal was actually to get these patients out of the hospital more quickly, to improve their overall satisfaction and recovery," senior author on the study, Peyman Benharash, MD (University of California, Los Angeles), told TCTMD. "We thought, if we can get a cost savings of 10%, thats pretty good, and we were surprised that we did quite a bit better than that." In addition, operators also achieved their goal of improved patient satisfaction and equivalent clinical outcomes.. Benharash, with co-senior investigator and fellow UCLA surgeon Richard Shemin, MD, as well as first author William Toppen, MD, published their study April 5, ...
Procedural sedation and analgesia, previously referred to as conscious sedation, is defined as "a technique of administering sedatives or dissociative agents with or without analgesics to induce a state that allows the patient to tolerate unpleasant procedures while maintaining cardiorespiratory function." The American Society of Anesthesiologists defines the continuum of sedation as follows: This technique is often used in the emergency department for the performance of painful or uncomfortable procedures. Common purposes include: setting fractures draining abscesses reducing dislocations performing endoscopy for cardioversion during various dental procedures during transesophageal echocardiogram and certain imaging or minor procedures where the patient is unable (or unwilling) to keep still-especially children Propofol Ketamine Etomidate Midazolam Fentanyl Remifentanil continue infusion Morphine Ketamine: Small doses of ketamine have been found to be safer than fentanyl when used in ...

This article presents a practical approach for safe oral sedation in the dental practice. When used properly, oral sedation can provide comfort and a calming treatment environment for patients whose fear inhibits them from securing needed dental care. In Part I, the authors provided information on medico-legal aspects of sedation, patient treatment recommendations, counseling, evaluation, monitoring, documentation, and proper discharge procedures. In this part, the reliable sedatives that have undergone years of clinical trials and have good records of safety and predictable results are presented. For each sedative, the description, formulation and dosage, onset, duration of sedation, and side effects are discussed.
Background: Previous studies concerning sedation in Swedish intensive care units (ICU) have shown variability in drug choices and strategies. Currently, there are no national guidelines on this topic. As an update to a Nordic survey from 2004, and as a follow-up to a recently introduced quality indicator from the Swedish Intensive Care Registry, we performed a national survey.. Methods: A digital survey was sent to the ICUs in Sweden, asking for sedation routines regarding hypnosedatives, analgosedatives, protocols, sedation scales, etc.. Results: Fifty out of 80 ICUs responded to the survey. All units used sedation scales, and 88% used the RASS scale; 80% used written guidelines for sedation. Propofol and dexmedetomidine were the preferred short-term hypnosedatives. Propofol, dexmedetomidine, and midazolam were preferred for long-term hypnosedation. Remifentanil, morphine, and fentanyl were the most frequently used agents for analgosedation.. Conclusions: All ICUs used a sedation scale, an ...
American Society of Anesthesiologists Definition of General Anesthesia and Levels of Sedation/Analgesia* (2014):. Minimal Sedation (Anxiolysis): a drug-induced state during which patients respond normally to verbal commands. Although cognitive function and physical coordination may be impaired, airway reflexes, and ventilatory and cardiovascular functions are unaffected.. Moderate Sedation/Analgesia ("Conscious Sedation"): a drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients respond purposefully** to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimulation. No interventions are required to maintain a patent airway, and spontaneous ventilation is adequate. Cardiovascular function is usually maintained.. Deep Sedation/Analgesia: a drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients cannot be easily aroused but respond purposefully** following repeated or painful stimulation. The ability to independently maintain ventilatory function may be impaired. Patients ...

What kinds of sedatives are available?. The most popular types of dental sedatives are nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation. Different levels of sedation (mild, moderate and deep) can be utilized depending on individual needs. Before administering any sedative, the dentist must analyze the full medical history of the patient, taking note of any current medications. Here is an overview of some of the most common types of dental sedatives:. Nitrous Oxide. Nitrous oxide, or "laughing gas," is used as a mild sedative. It is delivered through a nose hood, and is administered throughout the entire procedure. Nitrous oxide elevates the general mood and can evoke a general sense of well-being. Most importantly, it relieves anxiety and reduces pain during the procedure. In addition, some tingling and numbness may be felt. There are few side effects associated with nitrous oxide, and it has been safely used in dentistry for many years.. IV Sedation. Intravenous sedation is a moderate ...

With conscious sedation, most patients describe feeling as though they have "slept" through the appointment. Those who have had nitrous oxide sedation often compare it to feeling like they are "floating" or to having had a few glasses of wine. The oral sedatives have a similar effect, depending on the type of medication and dosage. Nitrous oxide and oral sedation methods will allow you to communicate with your dentist during the procedure. Throughout the appointment, your doctor will closely monitor your vital signs and overall comfort level.. If you are sedated you will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your appointment. Also, you MUST make sure you have someone to take you home afterward.. ...
Online IV continuing education (CE) course for nurses on administering sedatives to induce a depressed level of consciousness or moderate sedation, conscious sedation.
Sedation is often required during critical illness to facilitate mechanical ventilation, reduce metabolic rate, and promote patient comfort. Continuous sedative infusions can make differentiation between adequate and excessive sedation difficult. Excessive sedation may prolong the duration of mechanical ventilation and interfere with the ability to assess neurological status, thereby increasing healthcare costs and risk of complications. Currently, there is limited evidence to guide sedation practice. The study by Kress et al is one of the first attempts to evaluate the effects of daily interruption of continuous infusions on the duration of mechanical ventilation and length of stay.. The participants were ventilated medical ICU patients. Although duration of mechanical ventilation was an important outcome, there was no report of a standardised weaning protocol. Also, clinicians may not have been blinded to the research protocol despite attempts to limit their awareness. Any differences ...
If an anesthesiologist or CRNA provides anesthesia for diagnostic or therapeutic nerve blocks or injections, and a different provider performs the block or injection, then the anesthesiologist or CRNA may report the anesthesia service using CPT code 01991. In this case, the service must meet the criteria for monitored anesthesia care. If the anesthesiologist or CRNA provides both the anesthesia service and the block or injection, then the anesthesiologist or CRNA may report the anesthesia service using the conscious sedation code and the injection or block. However, the anesthesia service must meet the requirements for conscious sedation and if a lower level complexity anesthesia service is provided, then the conscious sedation code should not be reported ...
Moderate sedation is used during surgery. It will put you in a comfortable, sleepy, and pain-free state. Moderate sedation is different from general anesthesia because it does not require breathing support. It will also be easy to arouse you, so you can respond to questions or commands during surgery.
You may not be nervous at all about visiting the dentist. But put yourself in a childs place - a routine dental visit could be an anxious experience for them, and even more so if it involves dental work.. Dental professionals recognize this and go to great lengths to make childrens visits as pleasant as possible. Its common among pediatric and family dentists to see child-friendly exam rooms and a well-trained staff experienced with interacting with children.. While this helps, some children still struggle with anxiety. Dentists have one other technique that can ease a childs nervousness: conscious sedation. This technique involves the use of pills, inhaled gas or intravenous drips to help patients relax.. Sedation is different from general anesthesia, which uses drugs to render a patient unconscious so they wont experience pain. A sedated patient remains in a conscious but relaxed state: they can still breathe independently and, with the most moderate form of oral sedation, be able to ...
All critically ill, mechanically ventilated patients in the Intensive Care Unit receive medications to relieve pain and anxiety. However, accumulation of these medications can be associated with serious complications, most notably longer time on the breathing machine and in the ICU. Two strategies have been shown to dramatically improve patient outcomes: nurse-directed protocols for giving sedation, and daily interruption of sedation. However, these strategies have not been widely adopted, because of physicians concerns, and because it is unclear which strategy is better. Given that patient outcome is improved with either of these strategies, the fundamental question that arises is whether patients managed with a combination of two strategies which both reduce drug accumulation (protocolized sedation and daily interruption) have an even better outcome than patients managed with only one of them (protocolized sedation).We are conducting a multicenter randomized trial in which 400 critically ill, ...
30-4A-10. Reporting of Death, Serious Complications or Injury..

The detailed report(s) shall include:. (1) Name, age and address of patient;. (2) Name of the licensee and other persons present during the incident along with their names and addresses;. (3) Address where the incident took place;. (4) Type of anesthesia and dosages of drugs administered to the patient including ...
Pain, Sedation and Anesthesia - Frequently Asked Questions. We believe that each and every patient deserves the choice to be as comfortable as possible when undergoing an abortion procedure. We find that the majority of patients do very well with minimal to no sedation, especially those with little fear or anxiety. For patients who do not want to remember very much about the procedure we offer regular IV sedation. For patients who want to have a completely pain-free procedure, we offer either Deep IV Sedation or General Anesthesia. The latter two are not offered at all of our offices and General Anesthesia is only offered certain days of the week at one or two of our facilities.. Our standard IV Sedation is included in the surgical abortion fee. It helps patients to not remember the procedure, relieves anxiety and allows them to be comfortable and relaxed as the abortion procedure is being performed. With our regular IV Sedation, patients may feel some or all of the procedure, but discomfort in ...
Oral Sedation is normally prescribed to a patient prior to a dental appointment. This would usually require a patient to take a pill about an hour before the visit. Once this pill takes effect, the patient will feel relaxed and very drowsy but the patient will stay awake. Benzodiazepines or "Benzos" are the most common type of oral sedation pill that is prescribed to patients. These pills will immediately decrease feelings of anxiety by targeting the brain receptors which will decrease the activity in this area which is responsible for fear. It has two types: Sedative-Hypnotics: pills which produce a calming effect and Anti-Anxiety Drugs, drugs which help relieve anxiety and making the patient feel calm. Keep in mind that after taking any of these pills, you should always ask someone to drive you to your dental appointment or have someone accompany you if you will be walking to the dental office.. ...
... is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain people receiving dental treatment. It enables individuals too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding the common apprehension known as dental phobia.. According to to the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS Education), a professional dental organization dedicated to ensuring that patients receive safe, comfortable and anxiety-free dental care, 30 percent of the population avoids the dentist due to fear. This all-too-common "dental phobia" prevents people from receiving necessary routine dental care, potentially compromising the health and functionality of their mouth and smile.. What Is Sedation?.

Results The degree of sedation achieved by INM enabled all procedures to be completed without additional drugs. Premedication with lidocaine spray prevented any nasal discomfort related to the INM. The mean duration of sedation was 23.1 min. The depth of sedation was 1 on the modified Ramsay scale. The questionnaire revealed high levels of satisfaction by both doctors and parents. Sedation start and end times were significantly correlated with age only. No side effects were recorded in the cohort of children studied.. ...

This type of sedation induces an altered state of consciousness that minimizes pain and discomfort through the use of pain relievers and sedatives.

The medication will help you rest. Many of our patients sleep while receiving sedation dental care. A brief period of amnesia may erase any memory of the procedure.. ...
Inhalation sedation - Nitrous oxide - this is more commonly known as laughing gas as one of the effects is the feeling of happiness.. Nitrous oxide is very popular with the dentists as it only takes around 5 minutes from inhaling for it to take effect and because of how quickly a patient recovers from it. Typically the patient will remember very little of the procedure and can sometimes fall asleep.. The added advantage of Nitrous oxide is that it can be used for the exact time span for which sedation is needed, unlike oral sedatives which have a specific and limited effect. Additionally, Nitrous oxide can be administered in incremental doses until the desired level is achieved.. Intravenous sedation - this is sometimes referred to as IV sedation and is a drug administered through an injection to make people feel like they are asleep. You actually remain conscious and can follow the dentists instructions although the feeling of relaxation is so intense that you are unlikely to remember much ...
Your child will be given a combination of liquid medicines (or an injection if you or the Doctors feel the child will not take the liquid medicines well) which will make the child groggy and disoriented. After a specified amount of time, your child will be brought back to the treatment area without you. This is so that we can give your child our complete attention, minimize disruptive behavior, and help limit use of more potent sedative agents which may have more serious side effects. A Papoose Board® will be used to help keep your child safe and still. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and local anesthetic will be used to help make sure the child is as comfortable as possible. Your child may or may not go to sleep - this is "conscious sedation." We will carefully monitor vital signs thoughout the procedure.. As soon as the procedures are completed the child will be returned to your care and the appropriate instructions will reviewed for the childs discharge. Review our post-operative instructions ...
Patients are to refrain from eating or drinking after midnight the day before each procedure due to the anesthesia.. This process is completed three (3) days in a row and Dynamic Medical Services picks their patients up every morning at their house and returns them every afternoon. Since transports is available there is no need for family members to take a day off to accompany the patient nor does the patient need to stay the three days in an unfamiliar environment.. Upon arrival at the clinic an intravenous catheter is inserted into the patients arm and a small amount of "twilight" anesthesia is administered by a board certified anesthesiologist. The intravenous conscious sedation shuts off the muscle spasm cycle, which means the pain perceiving nerves go tot sleep to allow complete muscle relaxation. Although the patient is in and out of consciousness their protective reflexes remain intact so the body can not be manipulated into a way that would cause more pain. The MUA certified doctors ...
The researchers reported that a total of 1353 questionnaires were returned.. Respondents performed an average of 12 esophagogastroduodenoscopies and 22 colonoscopies per week. The team performed endoscopic procedures within a hospital setting more often than at an ambulatory center or private office. More than 98% of esophagogastroduodenoscopies and colonoscopies were performed with endoscopic sedation. The team noted that 74% of the respondents used a narcotic and benzodiazepine for sedation, while propofol was preferred by 26%. Sedation practices varied considerably within different geographic regions of the United States. Respondents routinely monitored vital signs and pulse oximetry.. The researchers observed that supplemental oxygen was administered to all patients during esophagogastroduodenoscopie by 73% of endoscopists. Endoscopist satisfaction with sedation was greater among those using propofol than conventional sedation. Dr Cohens team concluded, During the past 15 years, the volume ...

As much as people know that they have to look after their dental health, too many people still dont go for regular checkups. One of the reasons for this is that they fear the instruments and the dentist themselves. Unfortunately, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy because the longer someone waits to see the dentist, the worse their problems become. Dr. Kami Hoss is a very experienced dentist and he believes that building peoples knowledge on sedation dentistry may just be what is needed to get more people to commit to their dental care.. Dr. Kami Hoss Explains What Sedation Dentistry Is. Sedation dentistry has been around for a very long time. In fact, nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, was first introduced to dentistry in the 1840s, and is still used today. Genera sedation dentistry, meanwhile, was properly introduced by a student from Wales. Today, sedation can be used for lots of different types of procedures, from simple cleaning to full surgery. It is designed to stop ...
Sedation and analgesia may be need-ed for many interventional or diagnostic proce-dures, whose number has grown exponentially lately. The American Society of Anesthesiolo-gists introduced the term "procedural sedation and analgesia" (PSA) and clarified the termi-nology, moderate sedation and Monitored An-esthesia Care. This review tries to present a nondissociative sedation classification, follow-ing ASA guidelines as well as pre-procedural assessment and preparation, in order to choose the appropriate type and level of sedation, pa-tient monitoring and agents, which are most commonly used for sedation and/or analgesia, along with their possible side effects. The paper also lists the possible complications associated with PSA and a few specific particularities of procedural sedation. ...

As a dental practitioner in Mobile, AL, Dr. Sneed sees lots of patients every year who have dental stress and anxiety, worry or a genuine phobia. Dental worry is one of the most typical fears currently experienced by Americans.

Oral conscious sedation is a stronger type of sedation that works well for clients with moderate to extreme cases of dental fear and ...
Fear should never be an obstacle (in the immortal words of President Franklin Roosevelt, "…the only thing we have to fear is fear itself…"). And fortunately there are some safe options for those of us who cant get past our anxiety when it comes to dental care:. Oral Sedation. A sedative medication can be prescribed that you take by mouth approximately an hour before your dental visit to minimize anxiety and promote relaxation.. Intravenous (IV; "intra" - inside, "venous" - vein) Sedation. If oral sedation isnt entirely effective in facilitating treatment, then a medication combining a sedative for relaxation and a pain-blocking anesthetic can be delivered through or small needle or catheter that is gently inserted into a vein. This is referred to as "conscious sedation" because you are in a semi-awake state during which you are able to respond to verbal direction. It takes effect quickly, and you can come out of it quickly. However, you may not remember much about your procedure. It is ...

This randomized study on GA versus CS for EVT in AIS showed no difference in neurological outcome (mRS score) at 3 months. Furthermore, we found no difference between groups in angiographic outcome, early neurological recovery, cerebral infarction volume, and anesthesiological or neurointerventional complications.. These findings are not in line with previous retrospective analyses, demonstrating that patients receiving GA have worse neurological outcome compared with patients receiving CS.3-19 It has been suggested that this is caused by factors inherent to the GA technique itself, such as anesthesia-induced hypotension, hyperventilation, and attenuated cerebral autoregulation, all of which may impair important collateral perfusion of the penumbra.7,9,10,19,22-24 Furthermore, the induction of GA may delay the start of the procedure, and patients could experience ventilator-associated complications because of delayed extubation.18 On the contrary, in CS, there are concerns about patient ...
What is Sedation Dentistry Lawrence | Do you wonder what is possible with sedation dentistry? Call Lawrence Dental Solutions at 888.993.1707 to see how IV sedation can improve your dental care.
I know exactly what youre talking about and have encountered this problem several times. It usually stems from having had a previous bad experience in the dental chair, either as a child or adult. Without realizing it, anxiety kicks in. Heres the part most dentists dont realize. Once that anxiety has kicked in, it will either block the Novocain from working or burn it off too quickly to be effective.. Fortunately, there is a solution. When a dentist can calm the anxiety before giving you the Novocain, it will work. For those with mild anxiety, nitrous oxide is sufficient. This is administered with a nosepiece (as pictured above). You breathe in the gas and it relaxes you. Then, when your procedure is over, you dentist can switch the gas to oxygen. In just a few moments you are perfectly fine to get on with your day.. Its important the Novocain isnt administered until after youve relaxed. Ive known dentists who give the shot, then the nitrous, but it doesnt work. Yet, if they ...

Background: Propofol has been established as a reliable method for conscious sedation in patients undergoing flexible bronchoscopy (FB), but there are scarce data on its safety in patients with COPD. COPD patients can be expected to be at increased risk for sedation related adverse events due to diminished pulmonary reserves.. Methods: Data from a randomized, controlled trial including 702 patients undergoing FB under propofol sedation administered by trained endoscopy personnel were analysed. Adverse events and complications were prospectively documented.. Results: COPD was present in 236 cases (33.6%, mean age 63±12.4 y, 65 % male, GOLD IV 20%, III 17%, II 45%). Mean FEV1%pred was 57.8%. Mean partial pressure of oxygen was 67.4 mmHg (± 11). COPD patients required similar amounts of propofol in mg/kg KG (p=0.204). As compared to patients without COPD, minor adverse events were significantly more common in COPD (p=0.004), including both SaO2 ≤90% (p=0.041) and hypotension (BP sys ≤ 90 ...

The conception of this protocol was based on the following two main goals: to determine a suitable sedative regime for young children undergoing dental treatment and to minimize the biases that have been identified in this type of study, such as lack of a baseline measurement of childs anxiety and the use of supplemental nitrous oxide [8]. Additionally, we attempted to control for the type of dental procedure to be performed and limit the childrens age range, among other variables. In addition, we will scrutinize the sedation success according to multiple variables and not only the childrens behavior, occurrence of adverse events or completion of the dental treatment. These major points deserve further discussion henceforward.. The goal of the dental sedation for children of 1-6 years old is often solely to complete the treatment [8], but our interest is to accomplish the procedure in the most comfortable way [28]. This explains why we have chosen several outcomes to assess the success of the ...

Published literature has not discerned end-of-life palliative versus life-shortening effects of pharmacologically maintaining continuous deep sedation until death (i.e., dying in deep sleep) compared with common sedation practices relieving distress in the final conscious phase of dying. Continuous deep sedation predictably suppresses brainstem vital centers and shortens life. Continuous deep sedation remains controversial as palliation for existential suffering and in elective death requests by discontinuation of chronic ventilation or circulatory support with mechanical devices. Continuous deep sedation contravenes the double-effect principle because: (1) it induces permanent coma (intent of action) for the contingency relief of suffering and for social isolation (desired outcomes) and (2) because of its predictable and proportional life-shortening effect. Continuous deep sedation should be distinguished from common sedation practices for palliation and characterized instead as ...

In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of patients undergoing colonoscopy, sedation with an inhaled mixture of nitrous oxide/oxygen was compared with conventional intravenous sedation (pethidine 50 mg, midazolam 2.5 mg). In the patients studied, no significant differences were noted in number of pain episodes, need for additional intravenous sedation, or patient pain scores between the group receiving the nitrous oxide/oxygen mixture (n = 30) and those managed with conventional benzodiazepine/opiate injection (n = 29). Both methods were significantly more effective than placebo (n = 30). Six patients in the benzodiazepine/opiate group had oxygen desaturation, whereas none did in the nitrous oxide/oxygen group. Duration of stay after the procedure was significantly shorter in the gas inhalation group than in those receiving conventional intravenous sedation. Except for patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, nitrous oxide/oxygen inhalation is a safe and acceptable

Methods Patients who require two or more sessions of prophylactic EIS for the treatment of OVs will be enrolled in this prospective interventional study. EIS procedures include two methods: (1) sedation during endoscopic procedures will be performed using conventional methods (pentazocine (PNZ) and midazolam (MDZ)), and (2) sedation during endoscopic procedures will be performed using PNZ, low-dose MDZ and DEX. These two methods were randomly assigned in the first and second EIS. The effect and safety of these two procedures with respect to patient sedation are to be compared with the degree of sedation evaluated using the Bispectral Index monitoring system (Aspect Medical Systems, Norwood, Massachusetts, USA). ...
Background: The use of clinical signs may not be reliable to measure the hypnotic component of anaesthesia. Bispectral Index monitoring provides a direct measurement of the hypnotic effect of the anaesthetic agent used and it may have certain clinical advantages over clinical signs. Objective: This study consists of dose requirement of propofol with bispectral Index monitoring and without bispectral Index monitoring. Material and Methods: In the present study, 100 patients were randomly divided into two groups (50 in each group), one group received Standard dose of propofol while the other received propofol infusion with BIS monitoring. Results: Mean amount of propofol for induction used was 1.6 vs 2.24 mg/kg in bispectral index group and standard group respectively. The inference was that the induction dose of propofol by Bispectral index and by standard practice was statistically highly significant with P. Key words: Bispectral Index monitoring system, propofol, anaesthetic drug consumption, ...
