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 twice every year! 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 lifesaving, each practitioner must be prepared with a properly equipped emergency drug kit.

The purpose of the CE webinar is to emphasize patient safety and educate you on the seven essential drugs you should have in the medical emergency kit. Even though the right answer always includes dialing 9-1-1, you can start the chain of survival in your office!

At the conclusion of this CE webinar, participants will
• recognize the most common medical emergencies in the dental office.
• learn how manage the most common medical emergencies in the dental office.
• be capable of preparing and using the seven essential drugs recommend for the minimal dental emergency kit.   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
