A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO MEDICAL EMERGENCIES
FOR THE ENTIRE TEAM 
(4 CE)

Although the State Board of Dentistry has not yet mandated continuing education and training for medical emergencies, we strongly believe any course given under this topic deserves being revisited before any license renewal period. If you ever had an emergency situation occur in your practice or under your supervision, you will agree that those moments are both stressful and frightening. However, when doctors and their team are well trained, prepared and a proper protocol is in place, any emergency can be handled with confidence and ease. Most importantly, your patient’s life would not be at risk. We recommend this course is attended not only by the practitioners but also by their entire team. Saving the life of your patients, reducing your stress and being well prepared should be worth spending one day with us. In a simple but detailed way, this course will prepare the audience to handle challenging cases that they face in the daily practice of dentistry.

Course Goals and Learning Objectives

  • Analyze and utilize a medical history questionnaire effectively
  • List and demonstrate proper use of the items in a medical emergency kit
  • Recognize “red flags” in the medical history that require further investigation
  • Review recent lab tests, recent medication changes and other relevant medical information
  • Design a medical emergency management plan for your dental office and be able to calmly execute it

THE IMPACT OF VAPING: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Although it has been around for over a decade, vaping’s exploded in 2017, taking families, schools and healthcare providers by surprise. According to the CDC, there are now millions of American youths who are using e-cigarettes and numerous young people have died as a consequence due to complications from vaping. This course is the first of its kind to directly address healthcare professionals regarding the dangers of vaping that can not only affect their patients but potentially their own family and friends as well. As we wait for stricter laws to potentially end this crisis, there is an urgency to educate healthcare professionals on the impact of vaping. The more professionals who are knowledgeable on this topic, the more there are available to educate those who are vaping.

COURSE GOALS AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • To review history of vaping and impact of vaping on young individuals.
  • Clinical effects of vaping on user’s lung and oral cavity w FDA recommendations
