Fear of pain is the number one reason people give for not making regular visits to the dentist. At the same time, a majority of dentists report experiencing anesthesia-related problems during restorative dental procedures. If dentists are able to provide painless treatment, patient compliance and satisfaction are likely to improve. Pulpal anesthesia is a vital part of the delivery of dental care for restorative dentists and endodontists. Administration of local anesthesia is invariably the first procedure they perform and it affects everything they do thereafter. If the patient is not adequately anesthetized, difficulties inevitably arise. This book will help you successfully anesthetize your patients using the newest technology and drugs available. It presents the rationale, advantages, and limitations of the various anesthetic agents and routes of administration. A special emphasis is placed on supplemental anesthetic techniques that are essential to the practice of dentistry.

Clear, approachable writing style makes it easier to learn proper techniques and gain confidence, acknowledging not only the patient’s fear of injection but also the fears of the inexperienced clinician. An outstanding art program features more than 500 full-color photographs and illustrations. Technique and Procedures boxes provide illustrated, step-by-step instructions for performing specific procedures, including indications, contraindications, nerves and teeth affected, operator and patient positioning, insertion point, penetration, amount of anesthetic, and working time. Color-coded anesthesia boxes match the color scheme developed and used by the ADA (American Dental Association) and help in choosing the best agent for the type of anesthesia required, providing images, selection tips, precautions, and maximum dosing information. Review questions at the end of each chapter provide the opportunity to assess your understanding, and the Evolve companion website provides a 55-question mock examination and chapter practice quizzes. Case studies make it easier to apply concepts to the clinical setting and to develop problem-solving skills. Dental Hygiene Considerations boxes summarize key points and tips for optimal care. Key terms are highlighted within the text and defined in the glossary. Learning objectives begin each chapter and set goals for what you will accomplish; they also help you study for examinations. A focus on the Human Needs Theory relates the administration of local anesthesia and dental hygiene care to the eight human needs. Summary tables and boxes help you review and study concepts, procedures, and techniques. Expert author Demetra Logothetis is a dental hygiene educator with 20 years of experience teaching local anesthesia and pain control.

Anaesthesia for ophthalmic surgery can in certain circumstances stretch the confidence of the most fully trained and skilled anesthesiologist. The changing patterns of eye surgery and vitreoretinal surgery, and the increased interest in day-case surgery dictates that anesthesiologists should acquaint themselves with various anesthetic techniques, including local anesthesia for ophthalmic surgery. The authors of this book have been interested in anesthesia for ophthalmic surgery for many years. Drawing on their considerable personal experience, they present a sufficiently comprehensive text for the book to be a reference source for the trainee and a practical manual for those interested in and practicing ophthalmic anaesthesia. The book contains nineteen well-referenced chapters covering detailed peri-operative management of the ophthalmic patient who is undergoing either general or local anesthesia. It also contains a short glossary which non-ophthalmologists will find useful. The chapter on the anatomy and physiology of the eye contain information not usually included in standard textbooks of anaesthesia. Some chapters, such as "Systemic effects of drugs used for ophthalmic surgery" and "The eye as a mirror of disease" are extended to provide medicine and pharmacology.

The fourth edition of this highly successful textbook discusses the practical applications of the various methods of regional anaesthesia, including ultrasound, as well as giving an account of their theoretical aspects. The well-established author team use their experience to provide a practical and stimulating book which reflects everyday clinical activity, supplemented by high definition ultrasound images and schematic diagrams. The book will also discuss the place of regional anaesthesia in current medical practice, particularly with regard to pain processes, ultrasound imaging, and patient outcomes. Regional anaesthesia is a rapidly expanding sub-speciality of anaesthesia: routine provision of long-lasting pain relief and the introduction of real-time ultrasound block has fuelled a demand for cadaver and ultrasound-based anatomy training courses. Thus, it is more important than ever to have a thorough grounding in this exciting subspecialty.
