OCDO SOP – IHS vs AGP Clarification

The release today, by OCDO Office of Chief Dental Officer England of the ‘Standard operating procedure Transition to recovery’  brings some welcome clarification of the ongoing debate regarding Inhalation Sedation as a AGP. 

Page 24 of this document clearly states “Inhalation sedation is not considered an AGP and may be a suitable alternative to general anaesthesia for children needing dental care”.

Hopefully this brings to a completion the ongoing debate on this topic.  If any help or advice is required on the subject of infection control during the Covid-19 period, R A Medical are ready to offer help/advice on various products available, to assist with compliance in this area.
