AED and CPR legislation varies widely from state to state but continues to be rolled out over time. States such as Arizona, Georgia, Massachusetts, New York, Tennessee, and Texas require CPR training or Basic Life Support (BLS) certification. Over 40 states mention CPR training in their AED laws.
According to the American Dental Association (ADA) "Dentists, through their academic, clinical, and continuing education, should be familiar with the prevention, diagnosis, and management of common emergencies. In addition, they should provide appropriate training to their staff so that each person knows what to do and can act promptly." The ADA also recommends annual reviews and suggests conducting mock emergencies to help your staff become more confident in their roles when a real emergency occurs.
It shouldn't come as a surprise, but we think everyone who works in your dental practice should be first aid, CPR, and AED certified. According to the American Heart Association, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur each year and nearly 90% of people who experience SCA die. However, when confidently and quickly performed, CPR can dramatically improve survival odds.
