ABSTRACT
The combination of chloral hydrate and hydroxyzine is one of the safest and most commonly used drug regimens for sedating young, uncooperative pediatric dental patients. The continuous monitoring of respiratory function and early recognition of respiratory difficulties are essential for the successful management of sedated dental patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the success rate of the sedation and the hypoxia through monitoring the oxygen desaturation in the pulse oximeter in pediatric dental patients sedated with 60mg/kg chloral hydrate and 25mg hydroxyzine. The following results were obtained : 1. The success rate of the sedation was 69.6% and there was no statistically significant difference among the groups based on the ages, weight and duration of the operative time. 2. Forty two percentage of the sedated patients showed the temporary hypoxia state and there was no statistically significant difference based on the ages and weights of the patients. But there was a statistically significant difference on the duration of the operative time.
