This one-and-a-half day course is specially designed for the pediatric dental assistant to enhance their knowledge and understanding of sedation emergencies and other emergent medical conditions in the office. An introduction to oral sedatives and using nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation will be included. Participants will learn how to organize and prepare the office for an organized response to a medical emergency and how to assist in the management of medical and sedation emergencies.
On Saturday morning, there is a four hour workshop that allows hands-on training for the dental assistant. Participants will rotate through the multiple stations to include airway management; airway equipment; papoose board and monitor placement.
