This is a manual I put together in 1992. It is meant as a guide for the dentist who wants to use oral sedation. I had used Halcion, triazolam, for several years and kept records on 75 patients. As of 1997 I have used it in excess of 250 times. The manual is still available at $29 for those who do not want to down load and bind the whole thing. I will add illustrations as time allows and my skill improves. Please e-mail me your comments.
