Now for the ENTIRE OFFICE TEAM (Limit 2 Staff at Auxiliary Tuition to Each Doctor), an educational high fidelity simulation experience for successful management of complications to optimize your team’s reactions and responses.
This course is intended for dental practitioners providing IV moderate sedation and/or deep sedation/general anesthesia. Emergency scenarios will be customized to the type and depth of sedation & anesthesia you provide, and the emergencies you are likely to encounter. Course space is limited to provide each registrant with a high student – faculty ratio and an optimal educational hands-on experience.
We encourage staff to attend with their doctor to get the best team training experience, but due to high demand for this course, it is limited to two staff per doctor. It is suggested that staff be fully prepared by the doctor prior to coming to the course.
This highly popular, fast-paced, unique, challenging, and individualized program provides a clinical simulation experience that addresses the assessment and management of complications associated with moderate sedation, deep sedation and general anesthesia. Emphasis is placed on “hands-on” training in airway management. Following a brief introductory lecture explaining essential emergency management principles, and hands-on practice at specific emergency “task stations,” participants will then break into small groups to practice emergency patient management on human patient simulators (Hi-Fidelity Laerdal SimMan 3G computerized human simulators) in real time. Each participant typically participates in different emergency scenarios, and “leads” the management of some scenarios (customized to the provider’s level and type of sedation) over the course of the session. A debriefing to discuss the efficacy of the interventions will follow each scenario.
Registrants are provided pre-requisite reading materials for study, including treatment algorithms, and an optional online course pretest that may be completed prior to the course date for additional 2 CE credits.
Participants will practice the emergency scenarios in groups, and the emergency simulation training is most effective if done with the doctor’s own staff. To make the best use of the available time, participants will be provided with a list of mock drugs and equipment available.
1. Demonstrate the primary assessment of an anesthesia emergency.
2. Understand the various anatomical and pathological causes of airway obstruction, and other forms of respiratory emergencies.
3. Understand and demonstrate the recognition and appropriate management of respiratory depression,distinguishing it from airway obstruction, laryngospasm, bronchospasm, pulmonary edema, and other ventilator emergencies.
4. Understand and demonstrate appropriate management of bradycardia, hypotension, hypertension, tachyarythmias, etc.
5. Understand and demonstrate appropriate management of acute coronary events and cardiac arrest.
6. Understand and demonstrate appropriate management of allergic reactions.
7. Understand and demonstrate familiarity with the administration of emergency medications, and the use of intraosseous injection devices.
8. Demonstrate the selection and use of appropriate airway adjuncts, such as nasal and oral airways, LMAs, other supraglottic airway devices, endotrachial tubes, and cricothyrotomy.
9. Demonstrate the “team” concept in Crisis Resource Management, including the use of “closed loop communications”
