The course offers the opportunity to practice airway management on high fidelity simulators. Each participant will have to run through simulations and improve their confidence level and skill set with respect to Airway Management.

Particular emphasis is placed on patient monitoring and airway management and will:

  • Distinguish sedation levels and general anesthesia in terms of clinical characteristics and influence on respiratory and cardiovascular function
  • Describe essential features of preoperative assessment for patients undergoing dental treatment under sedation or general anesthesia
  • Describe and demonstrate principles of patient monitoring distinguishing requirements for moderate sedation versus deep sedation/general anesthesia
  • Describe and demonstrate proper airway maintenance during sedation and general anesthesia
  • Describe and demonstrate the proper use of devices for oxygenation and ventilation
  • Describe the pathogenesis, recognition and appropriate management of possible complications associated with moderate sedation, including essential pharmacology of emergency drugs that may be required
