Writing their third article for the Adventure Medic’s dental series, EWM faculty Burjor Langdana and Matt Edwards have produced a step-by-step guide to local anaesthesia when working in the field.
Achieving Dental local Anaesthesia is a very useful skill to have while working as a medic in a remote area. This freely accessible article could help you develop a skill to help control excruciating dental pain. A simple dental procedure in a dentally phobic patient would be possible, if only you knew how to get that tooth numb!
Using their experience while working for several expeditions and providing remote access dental cover, Burjor & Matt have produced a straight-forward guide aimed towards doctors, nurses, paramedics, medics & advanced first-aiders which is available freely HERE.
