1 Day Medical Emergencies & Dental Crisis Management for the Dental Team (28/06/19)


Healthcare professionals have an obligation to provide resuscitation skills in the event of a cardiorespiratory arrest and to ensure that staff are trained and updated regularly to a level of proficiency appropriate to each individual’s expected role.

A patient could collapse on any premises at any time, whether they have received treatment or not. It is therefore essential that ALL registrants are trained in dealing with medical emergencies, including resuscitation, and possess up to date evidence of capability’.
General Dental Council ‘Scope of Practice’ 2013

Course Objectives

  • To understand the various medical emergencies that might arise both in the dental chair and in dental practice.
  • To recognise the signs and symptoms of common medical emergencies.

Course overview

The morning session will cover the theory and techniques to meet the objectives as outlined above.

Participants are then shown how to correctly and safely use an automatic external defibrillator (AED) and airway management using an array of devices. The group is shown the drugs in our drug box and their purpose explained.

The afternoon session will consist of Scenario Practice and group debriefing.

Course participants are orientated in our simulated dental surgery and shown where the relevant equipment is stored.

Participants are introduced to an advanced training mannequin, where his physiological signs are demonstrated - consciousness, pulse, breathing and capillary refill being the prominent signs examined in general dental practice.

The group is then split into smaller groups and immersed into realistic scenarios, all of which could be encountered in the dental chair or anywhere in the dental practice.

After each scenario, the participants review their actions with the tutor and the remainder of the group using our digital video recording system. This part of the training proves to be a high point of the course enjoyed by all participants.
