Module 3 – Emergencies – Anesthesia – Pharmacology & Medically compromised patients.

This Module will cover different aspects to make dentists more comfortable in dealing with medically compromised patients, as well as aware of the various modalities of sedation available for these procedures, and how to assess these patients, what are the implications of the underlying disease, pharmacological therapies, and ultimately how this impacts dental care.
