In recent years the field of Dentistry has evolved in a spectacular manner. This means that remaining up to date in terms of knowledge in this area is almost essential in order to achieve high quality dentistry.

This programme is aimed at professionals, both generalist and specialist, who wish to expand their knowledge in the field of dentistry. The advantage of this programme is that it combines theory sessions with in vitro practical sessions using the materials and techniques explained.

During the practical session there are at least two lecturers present, so they become very closely supervised and personalised sessions.

The programme offers an advanced perspective on sedation using nitrous oxide in dentistry and cardiopulmonary resuscitation, but also covers concepts of the clinical pharmacology of medical gases and offers practical sessions on cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the use of defibrillators and equipment for conscious sedation with nitrous oxide. The nitrous oxide sedation course aims to ensure students improve the quality of the treatment they provide, and that they can safely handle treatment.


  1. Update current knowledge on conscious sedation.
  2. Be able to plan treatments using nitrous oxide sedation.
  3. Describe the basic components of inhalation sedation equipment.
  4. Analyse the function of each of the components.
  5. To learn and analyse the techniques for applying nitrous oxide sedation, indications and contraindications.
  6. To learn and analyse the advantages and disadvantages of inhalation sedation.
  7. To learn, prevent and treat complications association with inhalation sedation.
  8. To update knowledge on pharmacology applied to sedation.
  9. To learn how to undertake cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
  10. To learn how to use an AED.

Competences and learning results to be acquired by students

  1. The programme “Conscious Sedation with Nitrous Oxide in Dental Practice” provides an update of knowledge, techniques and protocols for action in line with the latest trends in this field.
  2. The student makes progress and improves quality in his or her dentistry treatments. As it is a theoretical and practical course, the student will practise under the constant supervision of a lecturer. This allows the student to compare and see which techniques are best for handling more complex cases.
  3. Having completed the programme “Course on Conscious Sedation with Nitrous Oxide in Dentistry”, the student will be able to handle with discernment the majority of treatments for sedation using this technique.

Prospective students

The conscious sedation with nitrous oxide course in dental practice is a programme aimed at professionals (oral medicine doctors and dentists) who would like to update and broaden their knowledge in the field of general dentistry and specialist areas.
