Correct dental treatment in patients with diseases of the cardiovascular system requires anesthesia using sedation technology, said Doctor of Medical Sciences, Chief Researcher of the Cell Technologies Laboratory of the Institute of General Pathology and Pathophysiology, FANO (RAS), dentist and maxillofacial surgeon Andrei Orlov. He explained that many are afraid of seeing the dentist, which causes blood pressure to rise. The doctor, in addition, carries out anesthesia with a substance that causes narrowing of the blood vessels, and this further increases the pressure. For the lower jaw, this situation is unfavorable, because anesthesia may not work. In this case, the use of sedatives in small doses will help. “If we sedate this patient, then the anesthesia comes almost instantly, within 5-6 minutes,” Orlov said on the air of Sputnik radio. At the same time, the patient feels as if in a dream. The expert added that such technology helps to treat patients with chronic diseases and diseases of the cardiovascular system. “It is important to use this technology in patients who have suffered a stroke, heart attack, who had a lot of stress. Stress gives rise to a number of symptom complexes, which then develop and result in the preoperative or postoperative period, Orlov said. He also noted that sedation should be done by an anesthesiologist who observes the patient, measures his blood pressure and pulse.
