Review Course in Minimal Enteral (Oral) Sedation (Level 1 Sedation)
Required Every Two Years for Permit Holders Live and Interactive Webinar
March 24, 2023
This course is designed to satisfy the Texas Dental Board requirement for continuing education in minimal enteral sedation (required every 2 years for level 1 minimal sedation permit holders). This course does not qualify a dentist to apply for a new minimal sedation permit. Individuals who complete the course will receive a certificate, which can be submitted to the TSBDE as documentation of continuing education in minimal sedation.
At the end of this course, the participant will have a renewed understanding of the many elements of the safe administration of enteral conscious sedation including:
Spectrum of sedation and the limits of enteral sedation
Patient evaluation and appropriate patient selection with an emphasis on recognizing patients at high risk of complications
Pharmacology of sedative agents including drug interactions and appropriate selection for patients with differing medical conditions
Appropriate use, limitations of, and interpretation of monitors
Management of urgencies and emergencies especially as they pertain to minimal sedation
Rules and Regulations of the TSBDE on the administration of minimal enteral sedation
