Editorial Reviews

Scott W. Podlesh
This is the third edition of this popular textbook. The previous edition was published in 1989. Like the previous edition, this book attempts to provide the basic concepts needed for understanding both the pharmacology and clinical techniques used in outpatient dental sedation. The book also discusses in detail possible complication and emergency situations that occur during outpatient anesthesia. This book is designed to be used by students of dentistry, both at the doctoral and postdoctoral levels, as an adjunct to training in sedation that provides clinical management of patients in a properly supervised environment. This book includes many charts, illustrations, and black-and-white photographs. Unfortunately, the charts frequently lack the information needed to make them useful as quick references, and many of the photographs are dated and of poor quality. The references have been updated but remain predominantly unchanged from the previous edition. The index is complete and easy to use. This is a very useful book for those dental students (both doctoral and postdoctoral) interested in pursuing training in outpatient sedation. Although this is a fine textbook, a mistake in the index should be noted. Dr. Malamed writes, ""In November of 1994 the American Dental Association recognized dental anesthesiology as a dental specialty."" In fact, the American Dental Association voted in November 1994 to not recognize dental anesthesiology as a dental specialty.
From the Publisher
REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION:

"This is the 4th edition of a popular textbook presently used by many dental schools in North America. For this edition, Dr. Malamed enlisted the help of Dr. Morris Clark, who co-authored the section on inhalational sedation, as well as Dr. Kenneth Reed, who upgraded the section on medically compromised patients. In addition to the improvements engendered by these co-authors, many of the illustrations and diagrams have been updated, and overall the new edition is superior to the third edition. The primary target audiences are pre- and post-doctoral dental students wishing to learn more about sedation and anxiety control. Increasingly, other medical practitioners such as podiatrists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, and even gastroenterologists are performing office sedation and they too would find this book very useful."
- Journal of Prosthodontics - March 2004
