Product Description: This definitive, authoritative clinical manual stands alone in the field of patient sedation. Combining essential theory with technical instruction, it presents "everything in a nutshell" for the practicing professional and student of dentistry. Key factors such as the physical, emotional, and mental condition of the patient - as well as required ADA guidelines - are incorporated into sedation techniques designed to improve the patient's overall dental experience. The result is an indispensable book, expert in its professional protocols and techniques, and comprehensive in its wide-ranging considerations. Detailed chapters, divided into eight parts, are devoted to topics on: the problem of fear and anxiety in dentistry; pain and anxiety control; pharmacosedation; history and techniques of general anesthesia; inhalation and intravenous sedation, preparation and management of emergencies in the dental office; and sedation for special needs patients - pediatric, geriatric, and medical and physically compromised patients.

  • Written by an acknowledged expert in the field, the book draws on a wealth of clinical experience and ability.
  • Combines all aspects of sedation with essential theoretical and technical instruction.
  • Techniques are divided into sections on pharmacology, armamentarium, and technique and complications - described in explicit detail that allows it to be used as a chairside reference.
  • Pharmacosedation is covered in full, with discussions of oral, rectal, and IM premedication, as well as nine chapters on inhalation sedation and ten chapters on IV sedation.
  • Covers all of the components required by the ADA guidelines: review of cardiovascular and respiratory physiology; selection of agents; techniques of administration; and management of complications and emergencies.
  • Step-by-step descriptions of inhalation sedation (nitrous oxide and oxygen) and intravenous sedation provide a superb clinical "picture" of the procedures.
  • Chapters on pediatric, geriatric and physically and medically compromised patients offer valuable, up-to-date information on the management of these special needs patients.
  • In-depth discussions of the pharmacology of commonly used sedative agents allow the reader to fully understand properties and characteristics of drugs used.

  • Content has been completely updated to include the most current drug dosage information.
  • More information on recreational abuse of nitrous oxide reflects the current societal trends.
  • The latest American Heart Association recommendations help prevent bacterial endocarditis.
  • Increased emphasis on nitrous oxide/oxygen, as many dental hygienists are becoming certified to administer this form of sedation.
  • New contributors lend credibility and experience to each topic discussed.
  • Content outlines at the beginning of each chapter allow for quick reference of specific topics.
  • Improved illustrations and photographs offer a fresh look, with high-quality art to aid in the visualization of techniques and procedures.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
