EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RESUSCITATION
• Medical emergencies are rare in general dental practice.
• There is a public expectation that Dental Practitioners and Dental Care Professionals should be competent in managing common medical emergencies.
• All dental practices should have a process for medical risk assessment of their patients.
• All Dental Practitioners and Dental Care Professionals should adopt the ‘ABCDE’ approach to assessing the acutely sick patient.
• Specific emergency drugs and items of emergency medical equipment should be immediately available in all dental surgery premises. These should be standardised throughout the UK.
• All clinical areas should have immediate access to an automated external defibrillator (AED).
• Dental Practitioners and Dental Care Professionals should all undergo training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), basic airway management and the use of an AED.
• There should be regular practice and scenario based exercises using  simulated emergencies.
• Dental practices should have a plan in place for summoning medical assistance in an emergency. For most practices this will mean calling 999.
• Staff should be updated annually.
