“Hands-on Adult Anesthesia Emergency Simulation Course”

Laerdal_website_SimMan_pic_lsThis course is for dental practioners 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 student with a high student-faculty ratio and an optimal hands-on educational 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 the staff be fully prepared by the doctor before coming to the course.

This course provides 5 CE credits and meets the requirements of “hands-on” anesthesia emergency airway training mandated by the Florida Board of Dentistry. Space is limited to 32 participants per half-day session. Register early, course fills up quickly.
