Topic:  Current Concepts in Local Anesthesia and
Medical Emergency Review: How to Avoid and Manage a Medical Emergency in a Health-Care Setting

Part 1: Current Concepts in Local Anesthesia

Part 2: Medical Emergency Review: How to Avoid and Manage a Medical Emergency in a Health-Care Setting

Most dentists will inject a local anesthetic hundreds of times every year, most often with success. However, there are times when administering a local anesthetic fails. Why does this happen?

In Part 1 of this seminar, we will review modern concepts in local anesthesia as they pertain to anatomy, pharmacology and armamentarium.   The latest research, as well as the newest products available to dentistry will be highlighted. Specific topics to explore include calculating toxicity in children, the safety and efficacy of articaine, new products such as buffering systems, a local anesthetic antidote and intranasal delivery. All of this will tie in to how we can deliver the most effective and comfortable local anesthetic injections.

In Part 2, we will review aspects of medical emergency response including patient assessment, medical emergency drugs and managing specific emergencies such as syncope, myocardial infarction, angina, stroke, asthma and other common emergencies. We will address the problem that studies show health-care practitioners forget some aspects of Basic Life Support training only a few months after being taught by learning an easy-to-remember mnemonic that can apply to any medical emergency.
