Both pediatric and adult patient issues will be discussed.

  • What are the critical areas to focus on for a proper patient assessment?
  • Explain the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the most commonly used anxiolytic drugs in dental practice.
  • Demonstrate how to do an airway assessment, and explain the implications for the sedated patient
