Course Description:

Life-threatening emergencies can occur anytime, anywhere and to anyone. Such
situations are somewhat more likely to occur within the confines of the dental office
due to the increased level of stress that is so often present.

In this course, Dr. Malamed will discuss the areas which are considered vital to a
proper understanding of emergency medicine: prevention, preparation, and the
basics of recognition and management.

We will discuss preparation of the office and staff, including a review of
recommended emergency drugs and equipment. We will then discuss recognition
and management of specific emergency situation including unconsciousness,
respiratory distress, seizures, allergy and chest pain.

This course is designed for all members of the dental office staff, not just the doctor
and chairside personnel. Situations discussed here can happen outside of the dental
environment as well as in the office. Everyone should be prepared!

Learning Objectives:
- List and discuss the four steps in office preparation for medical emergencies
- List and discuss the indications for the seven basic emergency drugs
- Discuss the basic management of medical emergencies including:
- Seizures, Bronchospasm, Anaphylaxis, Angina pectoris, Myocardial infarction, Cardiac arrest
