On the morning of September 13, 2021, the Cristina Viyuela Dental Clinic He has completed Basic Life Support and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation training. Previously, an external defibrillator was installed in the clinic Zoll AED Plus.
Basic Life Support training is divided into two parts, on the one hand the theoretical part is taught: such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers, airway clearance, bleeding control and the lateral safety position. On the other hand, in the practical part, the instrumented cardiopulmonary resuscitation procedure and maneuvers are taught, adding the use of the defibrillator and other means of assisted ventilation.
Sudden death can appear anywhere or at any time and does not distinguish between age and sex. However, some places, activities or habits can increase the possibility of suffering a cardiorespiratory arrest.
Although initially these two disciplines should not be directly related, oral health is linked to cardiovascular health. Sedation is directly linked to the cardiovascular system, which in certain patients can increase the risk of cardiac arrest.
Compliance with the Legislation on Defibrillators in Dental Clinics
Although there is no national legislation to install defibrillators in dental clinics, the community of Madrid dictates in the Order 1158/2018, of November 7, of the Health Council, a law regulating technical-sanitary requirements that the health centers, services and establishments must comply with without internment.
This law directly affects health centers, such as dental clinics, where surgical activities and anesthesia and sedation procedures are performed.
