ABSTRACT

Deep sedation is considered for the dental treatment of pediatric or disabled patients who have severe anxietyor involuntary movement. Deep sedation using sevoflurane inhalation in emergency dental practice, therefore, isalso preferred for fast induction and recovery. This survey consists of 121 people with pediatric or disabled patientswho underwent dental treatment under deep sedation using sevoflurane inhalation from January 2013 toOctober 2013. Patients who were scheduled for deep sedation were classified into a non-emergency sevofluranesedation group, whereas patients who underwent emergency sedation due to trauma and patients with disabledcharacteristics itself were classified into an emergency sevoflurane sedation group. Of 121 patients studied, 95patients received dental care under non-emergency sedation, 26 patients received dental care under emergencysevoflurane sedation. The two groups were analyzed according to: gender; age; primary reason for sedation; durationof sedation; treatment time; induction methods; treatment information; and departments. Non-emergencysevoflurane sedation in pediatric or disabled patients was safe and effective for controlling the behavior. Emergency sevoflurane sedation was a useful method for younger pediatric patients with traumatic injury whoneed simple, short time emergency treatment. Deep sedation using sevoflurane inhalation not only will reducethe use of general anesthesia gradually but also will be a useful method to emergency treatment for pediatric ordisabled patients.
