Update on Medical Emergencies 2017: How to Save a Life, Including Your Own – The University of Florida
April 21, 2017 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM$329
This seminar is given in a multimedia format with a hands-on segment showing drug administration, using real drugs, in real syringes, on simulated models. We will also have interactive audience participation (on a volunteer basis) to facilitate the learning experience. This presentation will review the prevention, preparations, recognition, and the management of medical emergencies – which can and do occur – anywhere and at anytime.
Attendees will receive a comprehensive hand-out. Individual pages within this hand-out can be used and copied for learning purposes by the doctor for his or her staff. Many doctors have benefited by bringing their dental team. Dr. Pompa incorporates an approach using a color coded system with each color depicting different emergencies. Every participant will receive these color coded guides, with algorithms depicting each condition and its suggested management.
The learner will also be shown how to create and maintain a drug emergency kit, the contents of which will be reviewed in detail.
After attending this presentation, the participant will leave with considerable medical knowledge along with a simple approach that can provide life saving skills. Participants will bridge the gap between the didactic knowledge presented and the ability to manage an actual crisis. We will accomplish this by describing real emergency scenarios, and then review the recognition and management protocols for each emergency. This will be done in an open group format as case presentation discussions.
