”The drug is time saving, effective, and safe. Patients with autism, a mental disorder, often find it hard to make relationships with other people. These patients display a strong resistance to dental treatment and sedation. This study reports a successful case of behavioral management during dental treatment, using sedation. The patient was strongly resistant to sedation via the oral, intramuscular, and intravenous routes.”
Some people think that vaccines/medicine is what causes Autism so they don't want to put their child under drugs that could potentially do worse. Also, it's hard to give someone with Autism instruction so if they needed to hold still during injection, it could be dangerous to sedate them.
Some people with autism can be a harm to themselves. You can see in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close that Oskar gives himself bruises when he's upset.
Autistic patience may be a harm to themselves or others. This could be solved with sedation of the patient to put the patient and doctors out of harms way
Nitrous Oxide, Conscious Sedation, and General Anesthesia are all safe sedations that are not harmful to use.
The hospital “is the incredibly wrong place for these individuals to go in the beginning,” said Michael Cummings, the Buffalo facility’s associate medical director and a psychiatrist who worked on Ben’s case. “It’s a balancing act of trying to do the … least harm in a setting that is not meant for this situation
When using certain sedation, patients will need to do certain procedures to make sure the drug is working correctly like breathe through their nose which could be hard patience with Autism.
Oskar, like many children with Autism, do not mean to harm themselves but end up doing so when trying not to hurt others.
"Is sedation safe for a dental visit? Our 25-year-old son has autism, and it’s so upsetting to see him strapped into a jacket for procedures."
¨ Perhaps you’ve even read the recent tragic news of the young girl who went into cardiac arrest after an apparent overdose of sedative drugs before a root canal.¨
Because Autistic people can´t always verbally explain what´s hurting, doctors can´t always get an accurate precedure. Being able to sedate the patient to understand more can make the process much faster, safer, and sufficient.
When operating on autistic patients, you need to make sure the doctors, nurses, and patient is safe. Without sedation, the doctors could do more harm than good. Using This sedation, doctor could get more fixed and feeling less pain.
