The population is aging, bringing older and more medically complex patients to the dental office. The chances of encountering a serious medical emergency are greatly increased.
The average dental practice that doesn’t offer advanced sedation services is often unprepared to respond to an unexpected medical emergency. Every member of the dental team must be fully versed in all procedures and the use of emergency equipment. There is no group as prevention oriented as Dental Hygienists, and they can take the lead in proactively guiding the entire team in this effort.
While having basic knowledge is important, motivating the team to be confidently prepared is the key. This course is designed to empower the dental practice to incorporate a medical emergency Action Plan into their standard of care. Prevention and treatment of emergencies will be covered.
This program offers an upbeat and often humorous approach to a serious topic. It offers many pearls and practical hints that will be put to use the very next day.
At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:
• Analyze and utilize a “Medical History Questionnaire”
• Incorporate current blood pressure guidelines in evaluating treatment risk
• List the items important to have in a medical emergency kit
