The Emergency Guide for Dental Auxiliaries is designed to provide dental auxiliary students with the basic skills and knowledge necessary in order for them to function effectively when faced with a medical emergency in the dental office. It also will be an effective refresher tool for dental auxiliaries who are already working in dentistry. The text includes objectives, review questions, and problem solving situations. In addition, Emergency Basic boxes outline the basic steps for recognizing a medical emergency and first aid steps to assist the patient. This design should help the reader master new information as well as provide a format that will simplify review of previously learned materials. The third edition of Emergency Guide for Dental Auxiliaries includes many new and updated topics such as latex allergies, gestational diabetes, Good Samaritan Laws, and other legal aspects of emergency care in the dental office. In addition new key words, and expanded problem situations are included to engage students and improve understanding.
