Course Description:

This is a great staff training aid! We never know when a medical emergency will happen in our office. Oftentimes, it has nothing to do with planned treatment. This presentation includes diagnosing and dealing with many potential emergency medical problems, including loss of consciousness, respiratory distress, allergies, chest pain, and other life-threatening situations. The following example "medical emergencies" are simulated with live patients for you and your staff to analyze and determine appropriate emergency treatment:

Vasodepressor Syncopy

Angina Pectoris

Mild Allergy

Postural Hypotension

Seizure

Asthmatic Attack/Bronchospasm

Hyperventilation

Epinephrine Reaction

Insulin Shock/Hypoglycemia

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Anaphylactic Reaction
