This video will provide up-to-date guidance on the recognition and management of medical emergencies in dental practices. As medical emergencies are uncommon in dental practices it is vital for dental teams to be trained on this subject on a regular basis. There is an expectation by patients and dental regulators that should a medical emergency occur in a practice all dental professionals will recognise the signs and symptoms and respond appropriately. In addition, the Care Quality Commission has several outcomes relating to patient safety and welfare as well as the availability of suitable staff and resources to ensure patient safety. This video will explain the ABCDE approach and look at various medical emergencies including faint, hypoglycaemia, anaphylaxis, angina, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest, epilepsy, asthma and choking with clear video clips of how to deal with such emergencies.
On completion of this video you should be able to:
- Reduce the risk of medical emergencies by making appropriate risk assessment
- Understand how to adopt the ‘DR’s ABCDE’ approach to managing the acutely sick patient
- Understand the management of conditions such as a faint, hypoglycaemia, anaphylaxis, angina, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrest, epilepsy, asthma and choking
