Vinainl
This book was good. However, half the time my class never used it. When I did follow the book, it was contradicting another source so I ended up missing several on a test because I followed this book instead of power points. I'm not a fan of that, so after the first test, I ditched reading it. It does however make a quick reference to symptoms and what not.

I would recommend this book to any medical personnel. I really enjoy this book and short easy to read chapters. Seller was great! Had no problem

Having been a dental edducator fo over 35 years, I found this book to present all the medical emergencies information recognized as essential to dental practice. The information is readily applicable to clinical settings, provides case studies as appropriate and further applies the pneumonic, REPAIR, to each emergency in order to help the practitioner better remember essential action steps for patient care. The appendix offers information on medical emergencies at a "glance" which makes the book essential to every dental practice setting. I would further recommend that dental educators consider using this book in the very first clinical course as a basis for an overview of what a student may expect related to medical emergencies as they begin to care for patients.
