Laboratory dogs are used to demonstrate and practice cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) procedures. Cardiovascular collapse, cardiac arrest, and ventricular fibrillation are produced in anesthesized dogs and then managed by the student. The laboratory exercise focuses and emphasizes CPR material taught in the classroom and on mannequins. With the current emphasis on CPR training and certification, we recommend the concept to the dental profession as an added dimension in teaching CPR.
