PURPOSE Conscious sedation is a behavior modification adjunct taught in all postgraduate pediatric dental residency programs. It has been a decade since the last survey was done specifically related to didactic and clinical aspects of conscious sedation in postgraduate pediatric dental programs. The aim of the study was to determine the clinical and didactic experiences associated with conscious sedation in these programs and to compare some of the findings to those collected a decade ago…

Survey of Sedation Practices by Pediatric Dentists
TLDR
The use of sedation in pediatric dentistry must be consider a patient`s safety as top priority and each dentist must show the evidence of sound practices for the prevention of any possible medical errors.
Project USAP 2010: Use of Sedative Agents in Pediatric Dentistry-a 25-year Follow-up Survey.
TLDR
Benzodiazepines are the most frequently used sedative besides nitrous oxide, and protective stabilization among users is declining, in a 25-year follow-up survey among members of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Parental Perception toward Dental Sedation in Pediatric Patients
TLDR
Less than half of parents brought an additional responsible person with them to the child’s dental sedation appointment, suggestive of inconsistent compliance with the pre-operative instructions at screening appointments.
Survey on sedation in paediatric dentistry: a global perspective.
TLDR
Paediatric dentists around the world use relatively few behaviour management techniques, including pharmacological management, but there is a definite interest in continuing education in the area of sedation.
Project USAP 2000--use of sedative agents by pediatric dentists: a 15-year follow-up survey.

  • 2002
TLDR
An overall increased use of sedation by pediatric dentists is demonstrated, however, the increased use is due primarily to an increase in the numbers of practitioners who are heavier users of sedative agents (once or greater each day).
Dental Sedation in Children
TLDR
Dental caries, a common ailment in children, often requires sedation, and the intranasal route for moderate sedation is used increasingly in dental sedation.
Sedation of Pediatric Patients for Dental Procedures
TLDR
The challenges of sedating a child for dental procedures are multifactorial and probably the most disconcerting issue is that dental disease, more specifically dental caries or cavities, is the single most common chronic disease of childhood and it is preventable.
The Direction of Pediatric Sedation: A Contemporary and Historical Look at its Science, Art, Strengths and Shortcomings
This manuscript takes a critical look at the contemporary state and direction of sedation for the pediatric dental patient from the viewpoint of an academician, researcher, and clinician with over
Pediatric sedation: can it be safely performed by non-anesthesiologists?
  • B. Smallman
  • Medicine
    Current opinion in anaesthesiology
  • 2002
TLDR
In some circumstances the incidence of adverse events when sedation is provided by non-anesthesiologist can be high, but given strict adherence to sedation guidelines and appropriate credentialing of the sedation provider, non-Anesthesiologists can safely provide sedation for children.
Oral Sedation Postdischarge Adverse Events in Pediatric Dental Patients.
TLDR
Postdischarge excessive somnolence, nausea, and emesis were frequent complications and the time to normality ranged until the following morning demonstrating the importance of careful postdischarge adult supervision.

Conscious sedation in predoctoral pediatric dentistry programs.
TLDR
A survey of predoctoral pediatric dentistry programs in American dental schools was conducted to determine the extent of didactic and clinical training in pediatric conscious sedation, and indicated that there exists a wide range of teaching practices, both in numbers and types of sedations experienced.
Current teaching of restraint and sedation in pediatric dentistry: a survey of program directors.
TLDR
While the overall use of sedation has decreased, the use of oral sedative agents reportedly increased by 42.1%.
Behavior management techniques in predoctoral and postdoctoral pediatric dentistry programs.
TLDR
For predoctoral and postdoctoral pediatric dental programs, less emphasis or elimination of "hand-over-mouth" techniques but more emphasis on parental presence for the introductory visit, using positive reinforcement, and using age-appropriate language and descriptions is anticipated.
A survey of parental attitudes toward sedation of their child.
A questionnaire was sent to parents whose children had been sedated for dental treatment o determine their acceptance of such a treatment modality. Other areas examined were the adequacy of parental

TLDR
The purpose of this study was to collect information from parents whose children had been sedated for dental treatment to serve as a means of evaluating treatment techniques from the parents" perspective.
A survey of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry membership: nitrous oxide and sedation.
TLDR
A mixed impression was found about practitioners' use of N2O and sedative agents, suggesting wide variability in practitioner habits related to pharmacologic patient management.

TLDR
There appear to be more concerns regarding the issue of informed consent, the appropriateness of hand-over-mouth, particularly HOMAR, and the use and overuse of sedation and general anesthesia.
Chloral hydrate and other drugs used in sedating young children: a survey of American Academy of Pedodontics Diplomates.
TLDR
A survey of 325 American Board of Pedodontics Diplomates was conducted to determine the use of chloral hydrate and other sedative medications in treating young, uncooperative children needing extensive operative procedures, and a lack of consensus among pedodontists regarding the selection and dosage of sedative drugs was shown.
A comparison of conventional versus electronic monitoring of sedated pediatric dental patients.
TLDR
Traditional monitoring methods and electronic instruments for monitoring physiologic parameters during conscious sedation of pediatric dental patients were compared to examine the potential of the capnograph to provide more advanced warning than the pulse oximeter for respiratory compromise.
