 Course Description:

Today’s dental healthcare professionals are being asked to manage more medically-compromised patients.   These patients present higher risk for in-office medical emergencies.  In this course we will use a case-based approach to review the management of the most common medical emergencies the dental team may face.  We will not cover the one-in-a-million medical complication, but instead we will focus on giving practical information needed in a medical emergency.  The presentation will also include instruction on the proper use of the drugs and equipment used to manage medical emergencies.

 Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the patients at highest risk for medical emergencies
  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of common medical emergencies
  • Develop differential diagnosis for common emergency presentations
  • Apply medical interventions to manage common medical emergencies
  • Describe the use of the drugs and equipment used to manage medical emergencies
