These TubulesLive are parts of the extended life support (which is the equivalent of ILS). This are required for practices that carry out sedation procedures. Extended competencies as needed by the CQC are airway management, reversal of sedation and cardiac life-threatening arrhythmias and the use of the AED defibrillator.

While we are unable to do the whole course on TubulesLive, DentinalTubules Online CPD has the entire extended life support courses (equivalent of ILS and covering these competencies) available at https://www.dentinaltubules.com/playlists/extended-life-support

Practice and premium members can access the whole course.

TubulesLive will provide learning on the above mentioned three competencies for your learning. Should you wish to have these for CPD for yourself or your entire dental team, you can view the entire playlist at https://www.dentinaltubules.com/playlists/extended-life-support
