UB Dental Teleconference - Management of Med Emergencies in the Dental OfficeMay 02, 2018

medical emergency in the dental office may be an unexpected event that can include accidental or willful bodily injury, central nervous system stimulation and depression, respiratory and circulatory disturbances, as well as allergic reactions.

Dentists, through their academic, clinical and continuing education, should be familiar with the prevention, diagnosis, and management of common emergencies. In addition, they should provide appropriate training to their staff so that each person knows what to do and can act promptly. Since these skills are not used every day, regular review is necessary: at least annually but preferably more often.

Conducting mock emergencies may help office staff to be more confident with their roles when a real emergency occurs. As a result, dentists and their staff should be prepared to recognize, respond and effectively manage a medical emergency.

The components of a sound medical emergency plan for the dental office should include:

Medical emergency prevention

Development of an action plan

Recognizing a patient's distress and management of medical emergencies

Emergency drugs and equipment

This course will cover some basics about obesity-driven inflammation, the oral diseases that it can impact, and how the dental care team can address these �growing� issues in daily practice.

At the completion of the program, you should understand:

A basic understanding of how obesity creates inflammation that can impact the oral cavity.

Obesity-associated consequences in oral diseases.
