A circular number DE-130-2013 4825 dated 16th July 2013 was issued by DCI on new guidelines on conscious sedation. We
personally feel this is a great step towards making sedation in dentistry a safe field and would like to congratulate the authorities for
the same. Such guidelines are a must before any accident happens tarnishing the image of pediatric and general dentistry. However,
we recommend few things along with request to give nitrous oxide a special consideration.
