View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This definitive, authoritative clinical manual stands alone in the field of patient sedation. Combining essential theory with technical instruction, it presents "everything in a nutshell" for the practicing professional and student of dentistry. Key factors such as the physical, emotional, and mental condition of the patient - as well as required ADA guidelines - are incorporated into sedation techniques designed to improve the patient's overall dental experience. The result is an indispensable book, expert in its professional protocols and techniques, and comprehensive in its wide-ranging considerations. Detailed chapters, divided into eight parts, are devoted to topics on: the problem of fear and anxiety in dentistry; pain and anxiety control; pharmacosedation; history and techniques of general anesthesia; inhalation and intravenous sedation, preparation and management of emergencies in the dental office; and sedation for special needs patients - pediatric, geriatric, and medical and physically compromised patients.

  • Written by an acknowledged expert in the field, the book draws on a wealth of clinical experience and ability.
  • Combines all aspects of sedation with essential theoretical and technical instruction.
  • Techniques are divided into sections on pharmacology, armamentarium, and technique and complications - described in explicit detail that allows it to be used as a chairside reference.
  • Pharmacosedation is covered in full, with discussions of oral, rectal, and IM premedication, as well as nine chapters on inhalation sedation and ten chapters on IV sedation.
  • Covers all of the components required by the ADA guidelines: review of cardiovascular and respiratory physiology; selection of agents; techniques of administration; and management of complications and emergencies.
  • Step-by-step descriptions of inhalation sedation (nitrous oxide and oxygen) and intravenous sedation provide a superb clinical "picture" of the procedures.
  • Chapters on pediatric, geriatric and physically and medically compromised patients offer valuable, up-to-date information on the management of these special needs patients.
  • In-depth discussions of the pharmacology of commonly used sedative agents allow the reader to fully understand properties and characteristics of drugs used.
  • Content has been completely updated to include the most current drug dosage information.
  • More information on recreational abuse of nitrous oxide reflects the current societal trends.
  • The latest American Heart Association recommendations help prevent bacterial endocarditis.
  • Increased emphasis on nitrous oxide/oxygen, as many dental hygienists are becoming certified to administer this form of sedation.
  • New contributors lend credibility and experience to each topic discussed.
  • Content outlines at the beginning of each chapter allow for quick reference of specific topics.
  • Improved illustrations and photographs offer a fresh look, with high-quality art to aid in the visualization of techniques and procedures.

Book Description:

The complete guide to patient sedation!



"This is the 4th edition of a popular textbook presently used by many dental schools in North America. For this edition, Dr. Malamed enlisted the help of Dr. Morris Clark, who co-authored the section on inhalational sedation, as well as Dr. Kenneth Reed, who upgraded the section on medically compromised patients. In addition to the improvements engendered by these co-authors, many of the illustrations and diagrams have been updated, and overall the new edition is superior to the third edition. The primary target audiences are pre- and post-doctoral dental students wishing to learn more about sedation and anxiety control. Increasingly, other medical practitioners such as podiatrists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and even gastroenterologists are performing office sedation and they too would find this book very useful."
- Journal of Prosthodontics - March 2004
