This course is targeted at all health and dental professionals (physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, paramedics oral surgeons, RNs, LPNs, CRTTs, etc.) that desire or are required to be verified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS). This seminar teaches the skills and theory which are necessary to successfully complete the ACLS course. CPR reverification courses are available.
This offering is designed so that each participant will have individualized attention. The course is unique in that the primary instructor, David Doernbach, recognizes that adult learners should be treated with respect and compassion so learning can be maximized. The schedule is based upon whether you are a Dental or Medical client.
When training Dental Clients, Dr. Dave comes to the office and trains both you and your staff to support you during the emergency. VSU, Incorporated is an approved PACE Program Provider with the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). When teaching Dentists, in addition to the necessary medical simulations necessary to be certified in ACLS, Dr. Dave incorporates dental emergencies including laryngospasm, anaphalaxis, bronchospasm, seizures, obstructed airway, etc. In Dentistry, it is important to train the staff as well as the Dentist as whatever orders are given, the staff need to be able interpret and carry them out in a prudent fashion which can only be done when they have been trained to use the equipment.
