Hands-On Course
"Recognition and Management of Medical and Moderate
Sedation Emergencies: Hands on Learning with SimMan"


This one-day course will focus on recognition and management of sedation and other medical emergencies in the dental office. Course format will minimize lecture in order to maximize practice time on a sophisticated, computerized human simulator device, SimMan. Only a limited number of participants will be in each class in order to ensure plenty of time for each person to practice on the manikin.

Activities will include basic and advanced ventilation techniques including use of several airway devices, as well as the use of many emergency drugs, including sedation reversal drugs. In addition, intraosseous drug administration on pig feet and cricothyrotomy on pig trachea will be discussed, demonstrated and practiced. Cardiac defibrillation will be part of several of the practice situations.

Upon completion of the course, participants will:
• Recognize an evolving medical or sedation emergency
• Understand the use and placement of basic and advanced airway devices
• Use and administration of emergency medications
• Understand critical thinking and problem solving in medical/sedation emergencies
• Develop leadership skills as they apply to emergency management
