This full-color text prepares dental professionals to promptly and proactively recognize and manage medical emergencies that may occur in the dental office. It details how to anticipate potential emergencies and what resources must be on hand to deal effectively with these situations. The book is arranged in eight sections concentrating on topics such as prevention of emergencies through patient evaluation (medical history) and specific types of more common emergencies that practitioners may encounter. Algorithms located in the appendices provide step-by-step diagrams showing the decision-making process in each of several common emergency situations. PABCD boxes throughout text remind the reader of American Heart Association guidelines on Positioning, Airway, Breathing, Circulation, and Definitive management and explain the relevance of these guidelines to the topic being discussed. 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. Information on AEDs (automated electronic defibrillators) explains how to use these devices effectively and the advantages of keeping them on hand in the office. A new chapter on Pediatric Medical Emergencies that discusses special conditions and management techniques for pediatric patients. The chapter on Medicolegal Aspects of Medical Emergencies discusses contemporary legal information that should be taken into consideration when preparing for emergency situations. Vibrant full-color design and updated photos show key concepts in vivid detail.
