This new text outlines a practical framework for treating both common and uncommon emergencies in the dental office. It also promotes an understanding of the many underlying disease states that can precipitate such emergencies. A wide variety of medical emergencies, ranging from treating a child with an epileptic seizure to treating a schizophrenic patient, are discussed and illustrated with real-life case scenarios. This logical approach to diagnosis and treatment of medical emergencies presents a concise review of pathophysiology to support clinical correlations. Medical Emergencies in Dentistry provides a solid foundation in assessment, problem-based decision making, and disease that helps clinicians react quickly and decisively when time is of the essence.
