Medical Emergencies - while relatively rare in a dental setting, every dental office will eventually encounter at least one medical emergency. Responding to such emergencies with the appropriate and rational use of medications is therefore an essential skill for every dental provider.

This course is presented by Dr. Steve Yun, a board-certified M.D. and Dental Anesthesiologist in Southern California. He will focus on the proper use and rationale of emergency medications that should be available in every dental office.

He will:

  1. Describe a medication paradigm that creates a culture of safety regarding medical emergencies in the dental office
  2. Examine the proper use, administration and hidden dangers of epinephrine
  3. Review the proper management of local anesthesia toxicity and seizures
  4. Discuss the proper use of naloxone, albuterol, Benadryl, and nitroglycerin.
  5. Identify the one emergency medication that is most often neglected or ignored in dental offices
