Course description

Managing the Medically Compromised Patient or How to Prevent Medical Emergencies

Monday, Nov. 11, 2019
Presented by Stanley F. Malamed, DDS

Life-threatening situations, though rare, can and do develop in the practice of dentistry. Though training in the recognition and management of emergency situations is mandatory, the prevention of such episodes is eminently more satisfying. It is therefore essential for all dental office personnel to be prepared to determine which dental patients represent an increased risk during treatment as well as being “potential catastrophes looking for a place to happen”.

Our subject for discussion will be the prevention of life-threatening emergencies. An effective Physical Evaluation System will be discussed, including: medical history questionnaire, physical examination including vital signs, and dialogue history. A risk assessment system and treatment modifications will be presented. Recommendations for the safe and effective dental management of patients with many disorders, such as cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine and neurologic will be presented.

It is strongly recommended that all members of the dental office staff attend this course.
