Course Overview

This Course is a Must for the Entire Dental Team!

Every member of your Dental Team should know how to Prevent and Respond to Medical Emergencies

  • Prevention of emergencies will be discussed by reviewing relevant drug interactions and the management of medically compromised patients.
  • Emergency equipment and the pharmacology of resuscitative drugs will be reviewed.
  • Protocols for specific emergencies, such as anaphylaxis, cardiovascular emergencies, respiratory emergencies, and local anesthetic toxicity, among others, will then be presented.
  • It is assumed that all attendees are already knowledgeable in basic CPR.

Each attending dentist will receive an Emergency Drug Kit consistent with RCDSO recommendations. Important: The Emergency Drug Kit can only be given to a registered dentist who attends the course.
