Summary of "Management of oxygen therapy in the dental practice."

Dental practices should have immediate access to oxygen, oxygen tubing and non-rebreathe oxygen masks in the event of an emergency situation. Although oxygen can save lives, if it isn't administered and managed appropriately, there is a potential for serious harm and even death. Dental professionals must, therefore, ensure that they and their team understand the principles of oxygen therapy. The aim of this article is to provide an overview of the management of oxygen therapy in the dental practice.
