A Review of Pediatric Pain and Anxiety Control: This seminar will begin by exploring what's new in the field of local anesthesia in the pediatric population. New local anesthetics and new delivery systems will be presented. As well, new needle technology and a local anesthetic reversal agent (OraVerse) will be shown. Then, local anesthetic and vasoconstrictor pharmacology, toxicity and drug interactions will be reviewed. The seminar will also review anxiolytic drug use in children. Finally, the management of pediatric emergencies as they relate to pain and anxiety control will be discussed.
