    Medical Emergencies

    medical emergency Hansamed


    Going to the dentist can be stressful. What can happen? What if something goes wrong and there is an emergency? Rest assured all practicing dentists are licensed under the Canadian Dental Association which regulates emergency preparedness in their Clinic.  All dental professionals are required to participate in annual or bi-annually CPR training as well as be equipped with the right medical emergency medications. This is where LIGHTHOUSE plays an important role.

    LIGHTHOUSE is a brand owned by HANSAmed Limited. LIGHTHOUSE is part of the emergency preparedness line that assures clinics are current and up to date with emergency preparedness medications according to their governing body requirements.

    When clinics purchase a LIGHTHOUSE medical emergency kit, it comes with all the necessary items and equipment to overcome a basic medical emergency within the clinic as well as assurance to both the patient and the clinician.

    How does the LIGHTHOUSE automatic replenishment program promote patient safety?

    HANSAmed’s automatic replenishment program with LIGHTHOUSE kits ensures that all life-saving medications are up to date, safe, and ready to use in the case of an emergency situation in the dental office.  This gives you peace of mind and assurance during every visit to the dental clinic.

    Each medication in the emergency kit holds a different expiration date. For dental professionals, it is hard to track these dates to keep them current as they are busy with other priorities within their practice. To help clinics in this respect, HANSAmed Limited takes on this responsibility.  In addition to HANSAmed Limited selling the medical emergency kit, we track each individual medication in the kit, monitor the expiration dates and replenish the medication prior to expiration. This ensures the kit is current and up to date should it ever be needed in an emergency situation.

    Each medical emergency kit is part of a batch production which has a unique batch code. This code helps HANSAmed Limited in tracking each clinic's expiration date. This also helps in case there is a drug recall.  A drug recall is the most effective way to protect the public from a defective or potentially harmful product. A recall is a voluntary action taken by a company at any time to remove a defective drug product from the market.

    How does LIGHTHOUSE™ Online Training save patient life?

    Lighthouse online training plays a crucial role in saving patient lives by equipping all dental professionals with the necessary knowledge, skills, and expertise to provide high-quality care.

    Your clinic can get one-year unlimited access to an online emergency training course regarding the proper use of medication and devices contained in the Lighthouse® Emergency Kit.

    Philips HeartStart OnSite AED role in rescuing patient life.

    The Philips AED HeartStart Onsite AED plays a critical role in rescuing a patient's life,  especially in cases of sudden cardiac arrest, where the heart stops pumping blood effectively. In this situation, defibrillation can be a life-saving intervention.

    The Philips AED HeartStart Onsite AED is one of the most popular automated external defibrillators. It was carefully designed for first responders and health care professionals with a need for an AED program and a machine that is durable, small, light, and versatile.

    Every HeartStart OnSite comes ready to rescue and easy to set up.

    The device is pre-installed in the carrying case with battery and pads pre-installed in the device.


    Expired medication (Drug Disposal Service): HANSAmed Limited strongly believes in waste management and is part of a waste management program to help keep our environment safe. It is not recommended to flush expired medications or throw them in the regular garbage either. On that note, HANSAmed Limited provides the dental clinic with a drug disposal bag that is to be shipped to our head office to dispose of the medications properly. Hansamed disposes of the medications, transforms pharma waste into energy and for every use of the service will donate $2 to Watersheds Canada - an organization dedicated to protecting Canada's freshwater.
