A crisis situation can—and likely will—occur at some time in your practice.
Many potential medical emergencies can be prevented. Gain a comprehensive command of the essential knowledge and skills needed to handle a life threatening medical crisis.
There are more medically compromised patients coming to our offices than ever before. Acquire “up to the minute” actions for dealing with a medical emergency while challenging preconceived or outdated ideas. Daniel Pompa, DDS – Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, ADA Consultant and Seminar Series Speaker – discusses the prevention, preparation, recognition and management of medical emergencies. Delivered in an interactive, high energy, multi-media presentation frequently described by attendees as “highly informative,” “engaging,” and “exceptional.” A step-by-step medical approach using basic physical diagnostic methods is reviewed, giving the attendee a clear understanding of these medical findings. We will explore the “Conversational History” and how it will uncover medical issues not revealed by the standard health history form. Additionally, the participant will learn simple, non-invasive critical tests that can reduce overall risks. We clearly delineate indications for emergency drug use and proper dosages, as well as demonstrate how to assemble and maintain an ideal emergency drug kit. The newest techniques for drug administration will be shown for participants to hone their skills utilizing simulation models and real drugs. Dr. Pompa may incorporate live demonstrations to enhance the learning experience depending on the venue format.
Attendees will receive and review color-coded instructional cards depicting the most common life-threatening situations with algorithms providing an easy to follow action plan for both dentist and team members. We will also review the legal and moral obligations that are presented during a medical crisis.
