Did I Save My Patient’s Life Today?


Last week I had a dental emergency happen in my chair. It was a very scary situation to say the least. I, like many of us have been trained to handle most medical emergencies should they arise, but have wondered…could this really happen in MY chair and if it did, would I react appropriately to the emergency? Later that evening I reflected back to the event that took place in my chair and it made me think, “Did I save my patient’s life today?” Watch the video below to see how the emergency hit VERY CLOSE TO HOME, and what three questions I will always ask in the future to hopefully prevent another frightening event like this from happening again!
