Medical emergencies can happen anywhere – including the dental office.

Emergencies that may be encountered include bodily injuries, central nervous system stimulation and depression, respiratory and circulatory disturbances, as well as allergic reactions. Not all of these conditions are serious and some are fairly uncommon. However, the breadth and likelihood of medical emergencies generally scales with the complexity of the patient’s medical history and if the patient is sedated.

Dentists and the dental team and staff should be familiar with prevention, diagnosis and management of common emergencies. However, many of the skills needed to successfully navigate an emergency aren’t in everyday use and should be kept up-to-date.

Emergencies may include:

  • Airway obstruction
  • Allergy/anaphylaxis
  • Chest pain/myocardial infarction
  • Choking
  • Emesis
  • Hypertension/hypotension
  • Hyperventilation
  • Hypoxia/apnea
  • Laryngospasm/bronchospasm
  • Local anesthetic overdose
  • Seizure
  • Stroke
  • Syncope
  • Tachycardia/bradycardia

Information essential to diagnose and respond to medical emergencies in oral healthcare settings will be presented via lecture. Special emphasis will be placed on factors to be considered in risk-assessment, recognizing medical emergencies that are immediately life-threatening and must be acted upon promptly and those problems that, while not immediately life-threatening, require timely stabilization until the patient can receive appropriate medical attention.

Instructional hand-on experience will be presented through live simulation or case scenarios led by oral and maxillofacial surgeons and supported by staff anesthesiologists, and held in the Clinical Learning and Simulation Facility (CLSF) at Brodie Centre. Limited participant registration is available for hands-on components of the courses.

Course Description

BASIC

The basic course will focus on commonly encountered but potentially frightening scenarios that may arise in a dental office in the course of routine delivery of dental treatment. The instructors will provide simplified ways to identify these diagnoses and manage the patient promptly. Management strategies will be presented in easy to understand algorithms in the lecture, and then followed up with an interactive session in the CLSF lab using live case scenarios and simulation manikins. This is course is an excellent complement to Basic Life Support (BLS) and is highly recommended for all members of the dental team and staff.

ADVANCED

The advanced course will focus on specific critical events that are associated with the administration of anesthesia in the delivery of dental treatment that are either common or serious. Special emphasis on management of fluctuations or emergent changes in vital signs involving blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rate will be addressed. Participants will have hands-on experience in the management of such emergencies with the use of live case scenarios and simulation manikins in the CLSF lab. This course is an excellent complement to Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and is highly recommended for all members of the dental team and staff. All participants must complete the basic course lecture (January 20) prior to taking the advanced course lecture and hands-on session.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify which patients are currently or potentially too sick to be treated in the office
  • Recognize various medical emergencies that could occur in the dental office
  • Implement a systematic algorithm for rapid assessment and treatment
  • Perform interventions in stressful situations with the help of simulation training
