This course presents basic principles of medicine as they relate to patients receiving local anesthesia for dental treatment. Emphasis is on understanding disease processes and medical or pharmacologic treatment of the diseases, rather than on diagnosis of disease. Dental -treatment concerns and anesthesia modifications for patients with diseases such as hypertension, asthma, cardiac disease, pulmonary disease, diabetes, liver disease, arthritis, and end-stage renal disease are covered. The interrelationship of medicine and dentistry is stressed.
