Medical emergency mastery was developed to teach dentists and their staff how to recognize and manage medical emergencies in their practice so they can best protect their patient’s health and safety. Adequate emergency preparation involves four key areas: A properly constructed medical history, a working knowledge of the signs and symptoms of the eight most common medical emergencies, construction of a straightforward, easily reproducible emergency drug kit and staff training that can be accomplished with as few as three responders. Participants will be provided with the tools to customize a medical history that is reflective of their patient population. The signs, symptoms and necessary responses for each of the most commonly occurring emergencies will be outlined. Doctors will be able to construct a personalized emergency preparation system that includes only necessary drugs and equipment. Staff training will be outlined in detail, as well as all necessary checklists, review logs and equipment maintenance records.
