The dentist may need to use pharmacological means to obtain acquiescence and cooperation from his/her patient to provide a good quality of dental treatment. Nitrous oxide/oxygen (also known as “medicated oxygen” or “magic air”) inhalation is a safe and effective technique to reduce anxiety and enhance effective communication. The dentists who utilize nitrous oxide for their dental patients shall possess appropriate training and skills and have available the proper facilities, personnel, and equipment to manage any reasonably foreseeable emergency. Training and certification in basic life support are required for all clinical personnel. Therefore, this hands-on will be incorporated with Basic Life Support (BLS) training.
