Healthcare Professionals First Aid (Doctors & Dentists) -

We offer various qualifications and courses which include resuscitation, meeting the requirements for healthcare professionals throughout the UK.

UK Resuscitation Council recommendations

The UK Resuscitation Council recommends that ‘staff should undergo regular training in the management of medical emergencies to a level appropriate to their expected clinical responsibilities’.

What the guidance says

Medical emergencies can happen at any time in a dental practice. If you employ, manage or lead a team, you should make sure that;
There are arrangements for at least two people available to deal with medical emergencies when treatment is planned to take place.
All members of staff, not just the registered team members, know their role if a patient collapses or there is another kind of medical emergency.
All members of staff who might be involved in dealing with a medical emergency are trained and prepared to deal with such an emergency at any time and practice together regularly in a simulated emergency so they know exactly what to do.

The guidance also states that;

All clinical areas should have immediate access to an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
