Anesthesia & Sedation/Emergencies

Local Anesthesia: Reducing Misses and Near Misses: Technique, Pharmacology and Humility

Understanding anatomical complexities of mandibular technique by examining the structures and barriers within the pterygomandibular triangle is reviewed. The conventional IANB, the Akinosi and Gow-Gates mandibular blocks will be presented in combination with multi-tasking supplementation with infiltration.
