About the Event

Course Summary:

This is a practical training course about the life support for dental professionals) Dentists and their teams) that can be provided in your place or you can join us.

The cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training for dental teams is recommended by Resuscitation Council (UK).

Each member of dental team has an obligation to provide resuscitation skills in the event of a cardiorespiratory arrest, and dental care providers (Surgeries) has to be ensured that their staff are trained and updated regularly to a level of proficiency appropriate to each individual’s expected role.

In this course we provide required Quality Standards and supporting information for the aspects of cardiopulmonary resuscitation practice and training dentists and their teams.

Aims & Objectives

The core standards for this course is applying in all settings to ensure that:

The deteriorating patient is recognised early and there is an effective system to summon help in order to prevent cardiorespiratory arrest.

Cardiorespiratory arrest is recognised early and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is started immediately.

Emergency assistance is summoned immediately, as soon as cardiorespiratory arrest is recognised, if help has not been summoned already.

Defibrillation, if appropriate, is attempted within 3 minutes of identifying cardiorespiratory arrest.

Appropriate post-cardiorespiratory-arrest care is received by those who are resuscitated successfully. This includes safe transfer.

Implementation of standards is measured continually, and processes are in place to deal with any problems identified.

Staff receive at least annual training and updates in CPR, based on their expected roles.

Staff understand decisions relating to CPR.

Appropriate equipment is available for resuscitation.

According to GDC “Dental practitioners and other dental healthcare staff should update their knowledge and skills in resuscitation at least annually.”
