IV Sedation Certification Course for RDA/RDH

5/17/2019 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

IV Sedation Certification Course for RDA/RDH

The ADMA IV Sedation Assistant  Training Course exceeds state training requirements for dental assistants and dental hygienists.  National guidelines recommend that dental assistants monitoring sedated patients are to be certified in at least twelve (12) combined hours of classroom and clinical instruction in:

  1. Anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology
  2. Monitoring
  3. Emergency procedures with an emphasis on airway management

3 Day (30 credits) ADMA IV Sedation Certification for Assistants & Hygienists. Composed of lecture and hands-on topics, this course builds a confident assistant that can safely work with IV sedation dentists.

It is imperative that dentists develop a strong team to practice sedation dentistry safely and effectively.  Having dental assistants attend this course provides the foundation to do just that.  Attendees will return to work with a comprehensive understanding of:

  • How anatomy, physiology and pharmacology impact patients when under sedation
  • Airway management algorithms and the techniques and equipment required to apply them
  • How to monitor sedated patients and communicate their status to the sedating dentist

This is all brought together when the assistants work as a team through hands-on clinical cases in the course.  The three day course satisfies all state certification requirements for dental assistants & hygienists.
