What’s in Your Emergency Kit and Why? This is a Core CE seminar

Preparing Yourself and Your Team to Manage Medical Emergencies
April 25, 2019
1:30 pm โ€“ 4:30 pm
  • Jason Goodchild, D.M.D.

Medical emergencies are defined as any condition that if left untreated may lead to patient morbidity or mortality. However, if your definition of an emergency is any condition of a patient that raises your blood pressure or pulse rate – then you need to take this course. Medical emergencies happen. Studies estimate that on average a practitioner will be faced with a medical emergency in the dental office at least once every two years. Some of these occurrences can be minor; some of these situations can be life-threatening. The good news for practitioners is that 75% of emergencies can be mitigated by good local anesthesia (pain control) and effective stress reduction. For those few instances when an appropriate response could be life-saving, each practitioner must be prepared with a properly equipped emergency drug kit. The purpose of this course is to emphasize patient safety, and educate you on the seven essential drugs you must be familiar with to manage any medical emergency.

Learning Objectives:
1) Recognize the most common medical emergencies in the dental office.
2) How to manage the most common medical emergencies in the dental office.
3) Capable of preparing and using the seven essential drugs recommended for the minimal dental emergency kit.
