Continuous Infusion Pump
This device continuously infuses sedative
medications into the IV line during the
sedation session. The effect is that the
patient remains evenly and comfortably
sedated throughout extended procedures.
Unlike basic IV sedation techniques that
require the dentist to manually inject
sedative drugs multiple times during long
procedures, the infusion pump produces
a more accurate titration. It works by
automatically delivering the sedative
medications based on the patient’s weight.
Dr. Gagne is the only dentist in Ventura
County who uses this technology.

Tital CO Capnograph
This monitor samples CO2 from the nose. The
gas ﬂow displays as waves on an LCD screen.
The waves indicate the quality and rate of the
patient’s ventilatory response. As the most
sophisticated monitor of breathing available,
it indicates potential problems within twenty
seconds. Basic pulse oximetry can take up
to a minute or more! Dr. Gagne has used
CAPONOGRAPH this technology since 1993. He is the only IV
Sedation practitioner in Ventura County that
uses this advanced monitoring technique.
