CPR and medical emergencies

Gain or refresh your skills and knowledge in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), with an emphasis on emergencies occurring in the dental environment.

Learn the current guidelines from the Australian Resuscitation Council and the 2015 International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCoR) guidelines specific to dentistry.

Review the process to assess a sick or collapsed person receiving dental care, including:

  • Management of an unconscious person
  • Recognition and management of anaphylaxis and adrenaline auto-injector practical skills
  • Use of an automated external defibrillator
  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation skills.

COVIDSafe practice for hands-on CPR component

  • There will be sufficient manikins to have one manikin for two participants
  • Each participant will have a new face on the manikin 
  • Participants will be asked to remove the used face, and the instructor (wearing gloves) will place a new face on the manikin
  • Each participant will use a separate resuscitation mask and valve, and there will be a manikin face shield added for increased participant protection – exhaled air from the manikins exit through a side port and not back through the manikin's mouth
  • All equipment is cleaned before and after use
  • Two-person CPR with rescue breaths will not be performed to maintain safe hygiene procedures. Rescue breaths will be performed singularly.
