Course Description:

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 Acquire “up to the minute” actions for dealing with a medical emergency while challenging preconceived or outdated ideas.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.

Here is what past attendees from QCDS lectures are saying about the Update 2018: Medical Emergency Lecture:

“This is one of the most informative and well-presented lectures that I have ever attended. It is apparent that considerable time and effort went into the presentation. The use of classical film clips to illustrate key concepts was both meaningful and inspired. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.”  Russel Karmel, DDS; Woodhaven, NY 

“This was by far the best CE course I’ve taken in a long, long time. Your passion and well organized information was only rivaled by your enthusiasm and great knowledge.” then a few months later:  “Yesterday I had a Dental Assistant who went into a severe allergic reaction with her throat closing. I didn’t panic and kept cool knowing I had taken your course in Emergencies and was capable of dealing with it. I activated the Emergency Rescue system you taught and it went by the book. Afterwards her Physician mentioned to her that I had saved her life.” Simon Cherif, DDS Queens, NY 

“This was a perfect presentation from start to finish.” Deborah Zivari, DDS; Forest Hills, NY 

“The useful information presented by Dr. Pompa far exceeded, my already high, expectations. I would enthusiastically recommend this program to all my colleagues.”  Daniel Fink, DDS Forest Hills, NY

“Dr. Pompa is an extremely thorough and dynamic speaker. His multimedia presentation kept me engaged and helped me retain the information presented. The knowledge I gained was above and beyond what I expected.” Peter Pollina, DDS; Queens, NY

“I would like to thank you for an excellent seminar. It was very informative and filled many gaps in knowledge we all need to address in our offices. You are fulfilling a very important aspect of dental education.” Menachem Darwish, DDS; Queens, NY
