Overview

Written specifically for dental professionals, this text describes ways to prevent and manage medical emergencies in the dental office. The text format follows the outline of the American Dental Association’s medical history form and covers patient assessment skills, general pathophysiology, and medical management of compromised patients. Readers will learn screening techniques for identifying patients at risk for complications, as well as ways to manage in-office emergencies such as adverse drug interactions. Case studies and exercises in each chapter make the book ideal for both self-paced review and classroom study.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amir H. Khatami, DDS (University of Chicago Hospitals)
Description: This book educates individuals in the dental profession on medical management of people with compromised health.
Purpose: The purpose is to list and discuss a series of medical conditions and describe the potential medical emergencies that may be involved. It also describes management procedures for the emergencies.
Audience: The author tried to address all levels of individuals involved in the dental profession. The book is written at a very basic level and may not be as interesting for dentists with higher training.
Features: All the medical emergencies that may happen in the dental office and some medical conditions are discussed. What I like is the way that a problem is posed and the treatment or management is discussed. The self assessment test is also a good idea.
Assessment: The book could be useful for individuals in hygiene or dental assisting school. In dental schools, this subject is covered in a great detail and this book may not necessarily be helpful for dentists.
