Author: Nicola Rogers

Nowadays, more and more patients request dental treatments under sedation. In the book entitled Basic Guide to Dental Sedation Nursing, 2nd Edition, Nicola Rogers, dental nurse tutor for pre and post-registration qualification training at Bristol Dental Hospital in Bristol, UK presents the basic information that any dental nurse needs to know in order to be able to help the treatments performed under dental sedation.
The book is divided into seven chapters, accompanied by an index. It presents the most important aspects of sedation one by one, such as the definition of conscious sedation, medico-legal aspects of dental sedation, the role of the dental nurse and equipment, patient selection, types of sedation, medical emergencies and finally essential anatomy regarding the blood, the heart, and the respiratory system. The book is accompanied by clear images and diagrams so that the reader could understand the information presented much faster and easier. It provides good support for any dental nurse who wants to participate in treatments performed under sedation and is also a very good manual for sedation nurses undertaking any of the current National Examining Board of Dental Nurses (NEBDN) sedation qualifications, including the NEBDN Diploma in Dental Nursing, City and Guilds or CACHE Dental Nursing qualifications, as well as for dental hygienists and therapists.
