General Information

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.

Intended Audience:
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.

Course Description:
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.
