Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office This is a Core CE seminar

July 31, 2020
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Larry J. Sangrik, D.D.S.

Medical emergencies occurring in the dental office can be stressful and frightening, not only for the patient, but also the entire dental team. This course is designed for dentists and staff to develop strategies to prevent, identify, and respond to medical problems including syncope, allergic problems, cardiovascular abnormalities, diabetes and respiratory distress. Emphasis will be placed on preparing the dental team in advance of a crisis to minimize its potential impact.

Learning Objectives:
1) Develop an appropriate “crash cart” with necessary medications and equipment, especially supplemental oxygen.
2) Learn how to recognize the 11 medical events dental teams are likely to encounter.
3) Develop appropriate algorithms to respond to each of the above.

Course Number: F27
