Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office, 6e

Medical / General



This full-color text prepares dental professionals to promptly and proactively recognize and manage medical emergencies that may occur in the dental office.

  • Chapters are organized into sections based upon types of common emergency situations.
  • Chapter on Preparation includes an updated emergency drug and equipment kit to reflect materials that are safe and currently available on the market.
  • Full-color drawings and updated photographs add realism to situations and equipment.
  • Information on AEDs (Automated Electronic Defibrillators) explains why these should be mandatory in every dental practice and describes how to use these devices properly.
  • A Pediatric Considerations chapter covers pediatric CPR and guidelines for basic life support.
  • A Medicolegal Considerations chapter discusses topics such as theories of liability, definitions of emergencies and standards, and limitations and requirements of the doctor-patient relationship.
