Handbook of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen Sedation 3rd Edition PDF
16.57 MB PDF
It is a great pleasure to present the third edition of Handbook of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen Sedation. It seems such a short time ago that the second edition was being completed. In that time interval, much has happened. Importantly, Dr. Horace Wells, the nitrous oxide pioneer and American dentist who was subsequently recognized as the Father of Anesthesia, was honored with a celebration on the 160th anniversary of his death in Hartford, Connecticut. Also notable is the fact that nitrous oxide education for practitioners worldwide has increased dramatically. Globally, China, Turkey, and India have introduced the use of nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation into their inventory of patient management options. The use of nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation has also found more application in varying disciplines and geographic locations.
We have reviewed the worldwide literature over the past 5 years and included applicable, current articles for reference. We have expanded all areas with emphasis on pediatric management. Additionally, photographs and illustrations have been reworked to enhance certain concepts, particularly in the administration technique.
This edition continues to be written in the direct and concise format consistent with the previous editions to facilitate your acquisition of knowledge and quick reference when questions arise. Over the years, we have had the great privilege of interacting with many people about their experiences with nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation. Our heartfelt thanks go to you, our readers. Without your support, this endeavor would not be possible. We appreciate your comments and welcome your feedback and ideas as we continue to use this type of sedation for effective management of our patients’ pain and anxiety.
