The Clinical Importance of Appropriately Designed Medical Gas Systems for Dental Offices

Be sure to read the June 2018 issue of The Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation newsletter (pages 17 - 19) for the article titled "Safe Gas Systems and Office-Based Anesthesia" written by Jonathan L. Wong, DMD and Gerhard Gschwandtner, PEng. This article explains why dental offices are not exempt from following NFPA 99, and why routine maintenance/certification of office-based gas systems is recommended.

 

Dr. Wong presented "The Rise of Sedation and General Anesthesia in the Dental Office and the Clinical Importance of Appropriately Designed Gas Systems" at our annual conference this year in Atlanta, Georgia.

"
Why am I a Special Expert for MGPHO? I’m not really sure, I think I’m ‘just one of the guys’. I believe that at one point in the day each of us has a moment of genius and at another point each of us has a moment of oops. To answer your question, probably my knowledge of manifolds, regulators, alarms and fittings are my greatest strengths and perhaps the reason that MGPHO bestowed me with this honor."
