Seminar Topic: 911 In the Dental Office: Managing Medical Emergencies
Speaker: Dr. Sangeeta Patodia
It is estimated that there are 7.5 medical emergencies per dentist over a 10-year period in a typical dental office. Incidents could occur at any time and calling 911 is not enough – dentists and team members must be ready for the unexpected. Sometimes seconds or minutes may be all you have to save a life, therefore it is vital that dentists can proficiently diagnose and provide initial management for life threatening conditions until EMS arrives. Effective management of medical events involves a coordinated dental team, specific drugs, and skills in the provision of airway and cardiovascular support. This course leverages case-based learning to teach the initial management of acute life-threatening emergencies involving the cardiac respiratory endocrine and neurological systems. The session will finish with exercises in team dynamics to demonstrate how coordinated teams can work most effectively together and optimize crisis management.
Audience: Dentists and teams
