What’s in Your Emergency Kit and Why?
Preparing the Entire Dental Team to Manage Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office
Jason H. Goodchild, DMD, Director of Clinical Affairs, Premier Dental Products Company, Plymouth Meeting, PA
Medical emergencies happen. Studies estimate that, on average, a practitioner will be faced with a medical emergency in the dental office at least once every two years. Some of these occurrences can be minor; some of these situations can be life-threatening. The good news for practitioners is that 75% of emergencies can be mitigated by good local anesthesia (pain control) and effective stress reduction. For those few instances when an appropriate response could be life-saving, each practitioner must be prepared with a properly equipped emergency drug kit. The purpose of the course is to emphasize patient safety, and educate you on the seven essential drugs you must be familiar with to manage any medical emergency. Even though the right answer always includes dialing 9-1-1, you can start the chain of survival in your office!
