I Want To Be Sedated – Ep. 33
Endo Voices welcomes Dr. John Hansford, double-board-certified pediatric dentist and dental anesthesiologist. We journey through the pathways for education and training and discuss the growth of the dental anesthesiology discipline. With a clever comedic undertone, Dr. Hansford invites us to learn about mechanisms of action, use and limitations of “laughing gas” captivating us with the story of its discovery. We take a deeper dive into the levels of sedation and general anesthesia, and demystify standards of practice and types of administration to maximize patient safety and treatment efficacy. This episode equips your offense game to recognize failing patient defenses and reinforces what protecting the patient airway looks like for provider and operator/anesthetist models. Tune in to understand pros and cons of IV vs. inhalation routes, and stay for the karaoke references to the Ramones…this is an episode you don’t want to sleep on.
