Sedation is a procedure that makes use of sedative medications to produce a relaxed experience for the patient. The central nervous system (CNS) is affected through the use of drugs, including tranquilizers and anxiolytics, that can be administered to the patient in several ways. Sedation dentistry has several benefits, both for dentists and patients. For patients, it can mean freedom from anxiety or fear during dental procedures. In cases where a patient has not been able to undergo dental treatment for many years because of this fear, sedation dentistry allows him to have several years' worth of dental treatment in just a few sessions. For dentists, sedation dentistry facilitates the easy performance of dental procedures. Patients are likely to be more cooperative under the relaxing effects of sedation. Treatments can also be quicker, because a number of procedures can be performed in a single session. Dental nurses play a vital role in assisting the dentist in the routine sedation of patients. In acknowledgement of this, the NEBDN run a post-qualification certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing that provides the dental nurse with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to carry out their role safely and competently. The ‘Basic Guide to Dental Sedation Nursing' is a must have book for all dental nurses seeking to develop their knowledge and understanding of this core area of clinical practice. Written in a clear and accessible style, chapters reflect the Certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing syllabus with chapters on such key topics as legal aspects, anatomy, equipment, patient assessment, types of sedation, medical emergencies and resuscitation.

Although rare, when medical emergencies occur in the dental setting they require a sound understanding of what action to take, to ensure that the emergency is dealt with quickly. Dental students and dental practitioners must be able to carry out first aid, including the principles of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and its practice. They should also be able to recognise and take appropriate action in situations such as anaphylactic reaction, hypoglycaemia, upper respiratory obstruction, cardiac arrest, fits, and haemorrhage. This essential, practical guide on how to diagnose and manage medical emergencies in dentistry covers the theory behind emergency management, in conjunction with practical tips and training so that all members of the dental team are able to deal with uncommon but potentially tragic events.

This review of sit-down, four-handed dentistry is an ideal how-to reference manual for the entire dental health team. Extensively illustrated with step-by-step procedure boxes and "how to" pictures, it outlines the implementation of efficient procedures for a productive stress free clinical environment--i.e., how to practice efficiently and how to select equipment that is ergonomically sound--that will improve productivity and reduce strain. Coverage begins with an overview of the principles of four-handed dentistry and motion economy, moves on to treatment room design, types of delivery systems, and basic equipment selection, and then details the basic techniques used to promote ergonomic concepts during routine dental treatment, such as seating the patient and operating team, instrument transfer, oral evacuation. For dentists, dental students, dental assistants, or dental hygienists.
