Sleep Dentistry and Operating Theatre
At Bangkok International Hospital (BIDH), we are committed in provide patients with safe and effective use of Anesthesia for investigation, procedure and dental treatment (Local anesthesia, moderate sedation and general anesthesia or sleep dentistry).
Our dentists and anaesthesiologists comply with standard and professional qualifications.
Performing anesthesia for investigation, procedures or dental treatment is to administration of sedative or dissociative agents with or without analgesics in order to change consciousness and help the patient to tolerate with pain and undesirable feeling during investigation, procedure or treatment whilst cardiac and respiratory function can be maintained.
The administration of sedative medication covers all kind of medications, dosage, and any route administration in order to change patient‘s consciousness.
Level of sedation /analgesia and anesthesia classified into 4 levels by American Society of Anesthesiologist as follows:
A drug –induced state during which patient respond normally to verbal commands although perception or body coordination is partial loss but ventilating and cardiovascular functions are unaffected.
A drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients response purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimuli. Reflex withdrawal from painful stimuli is not considered a purposeful response. No interventions are required to maintain a patient’s airway and spontaneous ventilation is adequate. Cardiovascular function is usually maintained.
A drug –induced depression of consciousness during which patients cannot be easily aroused, but patient still responds purposefully following repeated or painful stimuli. The ability to independently maintain ventilation function may be impaired. Patient may require assistance in maintaining a patient airway and spontaneous ventilation may be inadequate. Cardiovascular function is usually maintained.
A drug-induced to make a patient loss of perception, unresponsive to stimuli even pain, impairment of ventilation function and need assistance to maintain patient’s airway and possibly need ventilation support due inadequate spontaneous respiration. Cardiovascular function may be impaired.
Moderate sedation / analgesia will be performed under supervision of anesthesiologist or dentist or other non –anesthesia physician who has privilege only in the hospital.
Deep conscious sedation or sleep dentistry will be administered only by a physician who has hospital privileges for deep sedation.
