Course Information
This course is specially designed for the pediatric dental assistant to enhance their knowledge and understanding of sedation emergencies and other emergent medical conditions in the office. An introduction to oral sedatives and using nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation will be included. Participants willlearn how to organize and prepare the office for an organized response to a medical emergency and how to assist in the management of medical and sedation emergencies.

On Saturday, attendees will take part in the AHA PEARS Course (Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition, and Stabilization). In this portion of the course, the attendees will learn how to use a systematic approach to quickly assess, recognize the cause, and stabilize a pediatric patient in an emergency situation. During PEARS, attendees will interact with real patient cases and realistic simulations and animations to assess and stabilize pediatric patients experiencing respiratory and shock emergencies and cardiopulmonary arrest. PEARS prepares students to provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response.

Upon successful completion of the PEARS Course, attendees will receive a PEARS Provider Course completion card, valid for 2 years.
