Course will be held in Las Vegas, February 25-26, 2005, at the MGM Grand Hotel.

The American Dental Society of Anesthesiology (ADSA) is pleased to announce its upcoming review course, geared exclusively for general dentists, in Las Vegas, February 25-26, 2005, at the MGM Grand Hotel.

"Because Las Vegas is a city that attracts many associations, we believed it would be the perfect venue for this exclusive course that is a very comprehensive review for GPs," said President Robert Campbell, DDS.

The course content includes reviews of adult and pediatric anatomy and physiology, pharmacology and the effects of drugs used in enteral sedation, the use and need for monitoring, the indications and contraindications of inhalation sedation, and combination inhalation-enteral sedation. In addition, protocol for management of emergencies, emergency drugs and equipment during life threatening situations is addressed.

According to Treasurer Mort Rosenberg, DMD, a professor at Tufts University, this is a "must do" course for general dentists. "It offers general dentists the tools they need for safe and efficient anesthesia administration in their office," said Dr. Rosenberg.

The ADSA is an association of more than 4,000 members in the United States, Canada and abroad. Membership is composed of dental anesthesiologists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, general and pediatric dentists, periodontists and prosthodontists. Since 1953, the ADSA has been committed to the advancement of sedation and pain control in all areas of dentistry.
