Description: Today there are more medically compromised patients being treated in our offices than ever before. As a result, a more detailed medical history and medical evaluation should be taken prior to beginning treatment. This seminar will describe the essential drugs needed to create a medical emergency kit for your office. In addition, we will discuss three basic tests that can easily be performed to help in the physical diagnosis of a patient’s medical status. We will also discuss the “Conversational History” and how this can pick up many medical issues not revealed by the standard health history form. This can be performed by the dentist or staff and can prevent many potential medical emergencies from occurring.

Learning Objectives:

  • Easily recognize and manage the most frequent life threatening emergencies
  • Implement three simple chair-side, non-invasive tests, to help avoid an emergency
  • Determine when to administer the essential “Top 10” emergency drugs
  • Utilize a systematic approach for each emergency depicted on color-coded cards
