Advanced Protocols for Medical Emergencies in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Office (APME)

May 2-3, 2020

Designed for Dental Anesthesia Assistants

The APME course curriculum covers emergencies in the office setting that OMS assistants may encounter and helps prepare them to provide assistance. While the APME material is designed for assistants who have previously taken the Anesthesia Assistants Review Course (AARC), having done so is not a prerequisite to attend this course.

Topics covered include cardiovascular distress, respiratory distress and allergic reactions. Each topic contains examples presented in detail. This course provides excellent instruction that will ensure the OMS team is well-prepared to manage office emergencies.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Recognize potential and real emergencies.
  2. Evaluate the underlying cause(s) of emergency situations.
  3. Plan appropriate responses to specific emergencies.
  4. Function as an integral part of the oral and maxillofacial surgery team to manage office emergencies.
