Pediatric Sedation Emergencies Simulation Course
March 29, 2020
Center for Advanced Medical Learning & Simulation, Tampa, Fla.
 
While no one ever expects an emergency situation to arise, attending this course will help you and your team to be more prepared should the unexpected occur. This course is designed to simulate emergencies that may occur in a pediatric dental office. It will offer some didactic materials but will focus on team-driven assessment and responsiveness to situa- tions that might arise during sedation of children for operative care. The course is intended for pediatric dentists who are currently using sedation techniques in their office and will allow for the participant to make quick assessments of patient status and simulate airway tech- niques, while managing real-time trend- ing of physiological status with the goal of stabilizing the patient. You will be able to immediately implement training protocols for your practice that you've learned in the course.
