Review appropriate maximum doses

Enrollment in this course requires successful completion of Oral Sedation Dentistry

While most patients react within the normal range when given sedative medications(89, 92, 115), a small percent do not. How do you treat a patient who hypo-responds to medication?

Dr. Anthony Feck, DOCS Education's Dean of Faculty, will help answer this question in this 30-minute review of appropriate maximum medication doses and patient selection.

We based our Incremental Administration Technique on the pharmacological characteristics(109, 117) of several medications—all of which carry a large margin for safety. The majority of your patients will achieve adequate sedation with the average dose of these sedative medications. This PACE-approved CE course discusses how to treat the unique cases.

This class will meet the following objectives:

  • Understand the causes of hyporesponse
  • Learn how to adjust for the hyporesponder
  • Calculate the doses for the hyporesponder
