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.
