This text provides a framework for treating both common and uncommon emergencies in the dental office. It also promotes understanding of the many underlying disease states that can precipitate such emergencies. A wide variety of medical emergencies are discussed and illustrated with real life case scenarios. These range from treating a child with an epileptic seizure to treating a schizophrenic patient. The text draws upon the knowledge and expertise of a diverse group of dentists throughout the country.
Bennett and Rosenberg approach the diagnosis and treatment of medical emergencies in dental practice by presenting a concise review of pathophysiology to support clinical correlations. Successful outcomes in emergency situations depend to a great extent upon constant review and training of the office staff prior to the event. Suitable for students and practitioners alike, Medical Emergencies in Dentistry gives readers the solid foundation to react quickly, decisively and correctly when time is of the essence in managing emergent situations.
