Rationale 43: If the monitor inflation settings are too high this may cause considerable discomfort to the child and cause the BP to increase due to a pain response.

A limited number of studies have addressed manual ther- apy added to exercise versus exercise alone in hip and knee OA. Although manual therapy can be of benefit for certain conditions, such as chronic low back pain, limited data in OA show little addi- tional benefit over exercise alone for managing OA symptoms. Iontophoresis is conditionally recommended against (...) people worldwide (1–5), and is a leading cause of disability among older adults. The knees, hips, and hands are the most commonly affected appendicular joints. OA is characterized by pathology involving the whole joint, includ- ing cartilage degradation, bone remodeling, osteophyte forma- tion, and synovial inflammation, leading to pain, stiffness, swelling, and loss of normal joint function. As OA spans decades of a patient’s life, patients with OA are likely to be treated with a number of different

197. Standards for Conscious Sedation in the Provision of Dental Care

must be maintained. The effective management of anxiety and pain is an essential part of the delivery of dental care. Behavioural management, the use of local analgesia and methods of conscious sedation are all central components of care for patients who are frequently anxious about receiving dental treatment. Conscious sedation, provided when appropriate, in a skilled manner and in the correct environment, is widely used, valuable and effective. INTRODUCTION Introduction8 This is based (...) on establishing the best patient management and involves provision of information, counselling and reassurance as primary measures of anxiety control. When pain control is required for a dental procedure to be carried out under conscious sedation, appropriate use of local analgesia is also required. Conscious sedation is not a substitute for effective behaviour management and local analgesia. Behaviour management, local analgesia or general anaesthesia may each have a role in facilitating patient care
