Anesthesia & Sedation/Emergencies


Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office, Medical Emergencies in LIFE!

We are treating an aging and pharmacologically dependent population. How can we be expected to respond/react to life threatening situations when they “never occur?” Simplicity! Practical equipment adjuncts, a few good drugs, “red flags,” vasoconstrictor interactions and local anesthetic toxicity are assessed. The syncope algorithm is universally applicable to initially treating ANY emergency. Case reports assembled in over 45 years in dentistry will relate both dental office and life experiences.
