Sedation is a procedure that makes use of sedative medications to produce a relaxed experience for the patient. The central nervous system (CNS) is affected through the use of drugs, including tranquilizers and anxiolytics, that can be administered to the patient in several ways. Sedation dentistry has several benefits, both for dentists and patients. For patients, it can mean freedom from anxiety or fear during dental procedures. In cases where a patient has not been able to undergo dental treatment for many years because of this fear, sedation dentistry allows him to have several years' worth of dental treatment in just a few sessions. For dentists, sedation dentistry facilitates the easy performance of dental procedures. Patients are likely to be more cooperative under the relaxing effects of sedation. Treatments can also be quicker, because a number of procedures can be performed in a single session. Dental nurses play a vital role in assisting the dentist in the routine sedation of patients. In acknowledgement of this, the NEBDN run a post-qualification certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing that provides the dental nurse with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to carry out their role safely and competently. The ‘Basic Guide to Dental Sedation Nursing' is a must have book for all dental nurses seeking to develop their knowledge and understanding of this core area of clinical practice. Written in a clear and accessible style, chapters reflect the Certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing syllabus with chapters on such key topics as legal aspects, anatomy, equipment, patient assessment, types of sedation, medical emergencies and resuscitation.

The years that have elapsed since publication of the eighth edition of this book have witnessed some of the most major transitions in the history of dental nursing. Many of these developments are heralded by the modernisation and expansion of the dental care professions, while others are due to changes in techniques and materials. The ninth edition of the book has been substantially overhauled to reflect these advances, but retains the core information on dental nursing which has made this book a deserved classic! This latest edition anticipates mandatory registration and the growth of post-certification courses, while continuing in its tradition of providing a generous companion text for those entering the profession and preparing for initial certification. Dental nurses pursuing access to registration will find the book a substantial resource.
The principal aim of this book is to provide a rigorous and challenging set of practice questions for candidates to revise and prepare for the DCH/MRCPCH Foundation of Practice exam, for the Royal College of Pediatricians, UK, and will prove a useful tool for preparation for the Diploma of Child Health. It is divided into five practice papers containing sixty stems with five multiple-choice true/false questions each. Detailed explanations of the answers have been provided to aid understanding and knowledge. This will be an invaluable asset to candidates aiming to reach the standard required for core specialist training, and for general practitioners with a special interest in paediatrics. It will also be useful for GP's, doctors and nurses wishing to maintain their basic knowledge in paediatrics, as part of their continuing professional development.
