The Centralised Inhalation  Conscious Sedation Unit at Chennai

The Centralised Inhalation Conscious Sedation Unit at Chennai

Saveetha Dental College's Paediatric and Preventive Dentistry department has come up with a new clinical set up to deal with dental fear and anxiety in children - The Centralised Inhalation Conscious Sedation Unit. Conscious sedation is a technique that depresses the central nervous system for a period of time, enabling the dentists to perform the dental procedures with a positive cooperation from the child. 

During this period, the child will be in a relaxed state, with the ability to maintain a patent airway independently and also respond to the verbal comments.  Every dental chair in the Department of Paediatric and Preventive Dentistry of the college is connected with a conscious sedation unit and the institution has designed a centralised Nitrous oxide (N2O) and oxygen supply area, which supplies every individual sedation unit.
