Dental Management of the Cardiac Patient

The use of epinephrine in dental pain management of cardiac patients is controversial in large part due to insufficient understanding of ischemic heart disease pathophysiology and structure-activity relationship of cardiogenic drugs. Since healthcare students often receive information in a disjointed process covering discrete coursework in physiology, pathology, and pharmacology spanning several semesters, integration of knowledge for clinical application is challenging. This module consolidates various disciplines and unifies the concepts through interactive activities to increase student confidence in the pharmacological management of cardiac patients.
