Course Goals and Objectives
Performing lifesaving techniques and choosing the appropriate medicine and equipment is far more challenging in the dental office than in other settings. As healthcare professionals and doctors, you are held to a much higher standard of care. In order to achieve this goal, dentists and their staff should take a course that combines CPR and emergency medicine in dentistry. Topics my course will cover are as follows:
Signs & Symptoms and Definitive Care
- Heart Attacks/CPR and Strokes Emergency Drug Kits/Masks
Positive Pressure Oxygen Correct Positioning of Patient in Dental Chair
Anaphylactic reactions Hyperventilation
Airway Obstruction (Choking) Legal aspects/Standard of Care
Angina Pectoris Standard of care
Seizures Positive pressure oxygen masks
Sudden Cardiac Arrest/Defibrillation Syncope
Emergency plans with role designation
Each participant will receive a 2 year certification card from the American Heart Association
