Download Course Slides (in PDF format 5 mb)

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 recognition and management.

The  first  session  will  include  a  discussion  of  preparation  involving  the  office  and staff   and   includes   a   thorough   review   of   the   office   emergency   kit   (drugs   and equipment).  The  second  session  will  include  the  recognition  and  management  of specific    emergency    situations    follows    and    includes    the    management    of unconsciousness, respiratory distress, seizures, drug-­‐related emergencies and chest pain, including cardiac arrest and use of the AED.

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!
