Registration open for new ADA course on minimal, moderate sedation

There is still time to register for the ADA's new, two-part continuing education course, Recognition and Management of Complications During Minimal and Moderate Sedation. With a focus on proper monitoring and airway management, the course is for all dentists who administer minimal or moderate sedation in their offices.

Part 1 of the new course is available on ADA CE Online (

Registration for Part 2 is available on—look under Events on the home page or see Events and Meetings. Part 2 is a five-hour, hands-on workshop that will be offered three separate times over the two-day period of Oct. 28-29 at ADA Headquarters in Chicago. The workshop consists of four task training sessions (oxygen/ventilation, airway adjuncts, monitoring and drugs) followed by high-fidelity exercises using SimMan manikins programmed with scenarios on hypoventilation/apnea and obstruction (allergy/asthma). Space is limited to 16 participants per session.

Participants must have completed Part 1 before the date they are to take Part 2 and have current certification in American Heart Association or American Red Cross Basic Life Support at the Healthcare Provider Level.

The Anesthesia Research Foundation of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology developed the course with a grant from the ADA Foundation.
