Acute cardiac care in the dental office is always based on a limited patient data base and limited ability to intervene. The dentist must be aware that the parameters of these conditions are always the same. The dentist must recognize a problem in cardiac function, ensure tissue perfusion and oxygenation, restore cardiac function, influence the underlying cause, recognize promptly when additional acute medical intervention is necessary, and be able to activate the emergency medical system.
