National Guidelines

In response to guidelines in Standards for Conscious Sedation in the Provision of Dental Care (2015), a Report of the Intercollegiate Advisory Committee for Sedation in Dentistry, we have set up Resuscitation Council UK (UK) ILS courses and Resuscitation Council UK (UK) ILS re-certification courses aimed specifically at dentists and members of the dental team involved in sedation in the dental practices.

Targeted Training

Management of medical emergencies in the dental practice (at the end of the course each candidate will receive a copy of the book Jevon P (2014) Medical Emergencies in the Dental Practice 2nd Ed Wiley, Oxford)

Scenarios in the course will be dental and dental sedation themed. The optional targeted training component will include the use of midazolam and managing complications associated with midazolam e.g. respiratory depression and anaphylaxis.

Pre-Course Preparation

One day course: lectures and practical stations. Course manual forwarded two weeks before the start of the course and candidates are advised to study it thoroughly. Assessment on the course is continuous in nature and copies of the assessment forms will be forwarded to the candidate with their manual.
