The physiological immaturity of children makes them more vulnerable to, and at greater risk of, sudden deterioration so it is essential that acutely ill children are identified and their treatment is initiated immediately. This video will provide up-to-date guidance on the recognition and management of medical emergencies which can occur in children and which may be experienced in dental practices. As medical emergencies in children are uncommon in dental practices it is vital for dental teams to be trained on this subject. There is an expectation by patients and dental regulators that should a medical emergency occur in a practice all dental professionals will recognise the signs and symptoms and respond appropriately.

Learning objectives

On completion of this video you should be able to

  • Recognise a seriously ill child
  • Understand the ABCDE approach to managing a sick child
  • Understand the management of medical emergencies in children
  • Be familiar with the current regulations as applied to management of medical emergencies
