Course description

Emergency Medicine – 10 Minutes to Save a Life

Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017
Presented by Stanley F. Malamed, DDS

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!
