The number of times that CPR has been performed in the dental setting is unknown, because there have been no exact statistical data. However, considering the high prevalence rate for dental diseases, the possibility cannot be ignored that CPR could be necessary during dental treatment. Intravenous drug administration is a highly reliable and certain method to use during CPR; however, because peripheral blood vessels may not be palpable […]
Changes in blood pressure are shown by percentage change, taking the value just before injection as 100%.
In the study group, the pulse rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and mean arterial pressure before administration were 118 ± 22/min, 109 ± 17 torr, 57 ± 11 torr, and 74 ± 12 torr, respectively. In the control group, the pulse rate, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and mean arterial pressure […]
This experiment was performed using the handling regulations of experimental animals at Aichi-Gakuin University. Ten adult beagles weighing 11.0 ± 1.7 kg were used for a study group and another 10 beagles weighing 10.7 ± 1.9 kg for a control group. Anesthesia was induced with thiamylal and succinylcholine chloride intravenously and maintained by the semiclosed circuit after intubation. Ventilation was controlled with nitrous ox-ide-oxygen-isoflurane (1%) and vecuronium. The tidal volume […]
Although few dentists have performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), considering the number of dental patients seen in a typical clinic, the possibility cannot be ignored that CPR might become necessary during clinical dental treatment. During CPR, intravenous (IV) injection of various […]
