The relief of pain is among the primary goals of any health practitioner. Along with the inventions of modern forms of pain relief have come a renewed attention and appreciation for established ones, for example, nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation. This odorless and colorless gas was first used in dentistry in the mid-1800s. As taught by the Dean of DOCS Education’s faculty, Anthony Feck, DMD, you’ll gain an overview in “Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen Sedation for Adults and Children” of why this tool remains a mainstay of dental and medical practice.

All dentists who administer oral conscious sedation want to keep their patients comfortable, happy, and safe. To reach those goals, dentists must understand the dynamics of each drug they administer. That is, they must know how the drug interacts with receptors in the body and the location of those receptors.

In this course, Dr. Feck explains how basic chemistry determines the effects of a drug. He uses a popular sedative as an example to show the path it travels to bind with a receptor, turn it on, and boost the effect of a naturally-occurring chemical. He discusses chemistry again to reveal how the body’s composition changes the dynamics of a drug.
