General Dental Sedation Peterborough ON
What is anesthesia?
General Anesthesia: A drug-induced loss of consciousness during which the patient is not able to be aroused, even to painful stimuli. The ability to maintain independent ventilatory function is often impaired. Assistance is often required in maintaining a patent airway. Positive pressure ventilation may be required due to depressed spontaneous ventilation (breathing), which will require intubation. Cardiovascular function may be impaired.
Patients receiving sedation dentistry treatments must be accompanied by a responsible driver/caregiver who will drive them home. After the appointment this individual should stay with the patient until the effects of the sedation have worn off.
