Pain relief with a vasoconstrictor, a substance that constricts blood vessels and reduces blood flow in them, usually used by dentists, can further increase blood pressure in a hypertensive patient.
As the doctor of medical sciences, dentist Andrey Orlov explained, knowing that the body of a person who comes to the appointment can respond to local anesthesia by increasing pressure, it is best in such cases to use sedatives in minimal doses for pain relief.
“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, - quotes a radio specialist Sputnik.
When sedatives are used, the person feels as if they are dozing off, so treatment under sedation is often referred to as sleep treatment. As the dentist explained, this technology helps in working with patients with chronic diseases and problems with the cardiovascular system.
