Recognition and Management of Medical and Airway Emergencies: A Dental Team Approach

New Course

This course meets the Board of Dentistry guidelines of the recent rule change for 64B5-14.004 for the biennial CE requirements of all sedation permit holders, which now states in section (2):

(2) During the licensure biennial renewal period that begins on March 1, 2020 and ever licensure biennial renewal period thereafter, all dentists who hold an active sedation permit of any level shall take the following continuing education instead of the continuing education required in subsection (1): A four (4) hour board approved continuing education course in Medical Emergencies that shall include airway management as a component of the course.

Course Description

Medical emergencies are almost always unexpected and disruptive to the flow of office productivity.  This course is designed to review Medical Risk Assessment for the dental provider, create a response team from the office, review and provide algorithms for the management of common office emergencies and manage airway emergencies. A hands on airway simulation will be part of the course.  This course is intended for dental providers and office personnel so as to create the team approach to managing medical emergencies.
