Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office: Why CPR is Not Enough

Medical emergencies occurring in the dental office can be stressful and frightening for both the patient and the entire dental team. This seminar will help participants develop strategies to prevent, identify, and respond to a wide range of medical crises. Emphasis will be placed on preparing the dental team to minimize the impact of such an event. Although any dental professional will benefit from attending individually, the greatest gain is achieved when the entire dental team attends together. By doing so, dental teams develop a coordinated response.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how to maintain a patent airway and provide oxygen for both breathing and non-breathing patients.
  • Recognize the use of various medications in the emergency drug kit.
  • Establish protocols for the 12 most common medical emergencies.
  • Develop a response manual for chairside reference during a medical emergency.
