Intravenous Sedation – Selective
Course Director: Dr. O. Ross Beirne
Quarter/Yr of Program: Winter, Spring / 4
This course is the clinical component of the Elements of Moderate Sedation series. Students will administer sedation to at least 20 patients receiving sedation in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Clinic. Students will learn how to place intravenous catheters, administer intravenous sedative medications, record vital signs before and during sedation as well as during recovery. Airway management and the management of medical emergencies will be reviewed. OS 656 Internal Medicine for Dentistry and OS 661 Elements of Moderate Sedation are prerequisite courses to take this course.
Fourth year predoctoral dental students interested in taking OS 661 are welcome to do so, but they must attend at least 90% of all lectures if their intent is to follow-up with OS 672.
