Medical emergencies can and do occur in the dental office. With advances in the medical field, we as dental practitioners are seeing and treating a significant medically-compromised patient population as outpatients in our dental offices. Fortunately, most of the emergencies that occur are treated appropriately and there is little harm to the patient. However, improper management of these emergencies can have disastrous results. Likewise, proper management of the medical emergency is no guarantee of a successful outcome.
This course will review common medical emergencies and management of these problems. Clinical “pearls” will be discussed that can hopefully lessen the chances of these emergencies. This presentation should be applicable to all members of the dental office team.
This course is approved by the Kentucky Board of Dentistry and meets the requirements for dental hygienists for provisions stipulated in 201 KAR 8:560E.
At the conclusion of this Course, participants will have an understanding of: • Common medical emergencies encountered in the dental office.
• How to prevent common emergency situations which can occur in the dental office.
• The appropriate treatment protocols/algorithms to manage various medical emergencies in the dental office.
