In this episode of Thriving Dentist Show we address the very serious topic of how to prepare for medical emergencies in your practice. Research done at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio reveals that every practicing U.S. dentist will face approximately eight potentially life-threatening medical emergencies in their offices every 10 years. That means there will be approximately 150,000 dental medical emergencies in the U.S. every year. More and more dental emergencies are due to unanticipated interactions between sedation and the medications a patient is taking. According to the American Medical Association, in 2010 the average American between the ages of 35 and 50 was currently taking seven prescribed medications (an increase from four in 2002). We were very fortunate to have Dr. Catharine Goodson as a special guest on the Thriving Dentist Show. Dr. Goodson is an authority on how to prepare for medical emergencies and she has some very useful information to share with our listeners.
This is a topic that many Dentists don’t spend much time thinking about, yet proper preparation is absolutely critical.
