In dental practices, there is required equipment and drugs that are needed in case of an emergency. The UK Resuscitation Council lay down the drugs that need to be required.

Briefly listed are the Drugs required in a Dental Practice; Aspirin, Glyceryl Trinitrate Spray, Midazolam, Glucose, Glucagon Hydrochloride, Spacer Device & Salbutamol Inhaler.  When managing expiry dates of medications, dates are documented in a computerised diary to ensure all medications are in date and out-of-date medications can be disposed of at the right time and correctly.
