It happens when we least expect it!! This came across my desk just in time. I attended a Sedation class over the weekend and the top conversation was on handling medical emergencies in the dental office. More often than not are minor, but there does come a time when your skills will be called into play.
Most all states require dental assistants that hold any level of expanded functions to be CPR/BLS certified. Is yours up to date?
Do you know what to do in an emergency? do your team mates know what to do?
This article from our friends at DentistryIQ has some great info that we can use to stay informed.
