Course Description:
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 the basics of recognition and management. We will discuss preparation of the office and staff, including a review of
recommended emergency drugs and equipment. We will then discuss recognition and management of specific emergency situation including unconsciousness, respiratory distress, seizures, allergy and chest pain.

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!
