Pediatric Level 1 Permit Renewal

This continuing education program satisfies rule 110 by the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners, and other state dental boards, requiring that all practitioners, in order to keep their parenteral sedation permit current, document successful completion of a continuing education course every 2 years. Pediatric sedation recertification examines pediatric anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and patient selection as it applies it to enteral sedation in dentistry. The most common sedative agents, techniques and routes of administration (oral, IV, Nasal, SQ, IM) are analyzed along with dosing recommendations and the importance of diligent monitoring and records keeping required for a pediatric patient are reinforced. This continuing education program is completed with airway management of a sedated patient; office based medical emergencies and drug box assembly. Our interactive didactics along with simulated case scenarios using manikins produce a stress free team-learning environment where practitioners develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become proficient sedation providers. This program includes didactic instruction and a hands on skills workshop in airway management utilizing simulation and multiple airway devices, in addition scenarios will be constructed and participants will be asked questions in regards to managing medical emergencies.   [video width="1920" height="1080" mp4="https://swsedationeducation.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Pediatric-Course-Preview.mp4"][/video]

PALS & Airway Management:

PALS is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care in infants and children. This course will expand your knowledge and skills necessary to assess and treat pediatric patients. It also covers airway management and related pharmacology. In this course, skills are taught in large, group sessions and small, group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented. This workshop will provide participants with American Heart Association PALS® Certification and provide a full day of medical emergency management techniques. Course consists of didactic lectures, intensive imaging, discussion and hands on workshop with mannequins and patient simulators. Audience: This course is appropriate for dentists and assisting staff. BLS Coures suit healthcare providers with varying skillsets, but mainly attemp to reverse pulseless arrest (death). ACLS and PALS help advanced teams perevent the deterioration of alive patients, but most dentists either cannot perform or lack equipment/credentialed staff to perform the interventions. Further, the most costly "dental emergency kits" contain drugs/supplies unfamiliar to dentists. To address these issues, the speaker (an AHA instructor) teaches feasible worflow within the audience's skillset. In addition to discussion, attendees receive handouts with office supply lists and EM algorithm germane to dental settings. Objectives: At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
  1.  Recognize and initiate early management of peri-arrest conditions that may result in cardiac arrest or complicate resuscitation outcome;
  2.  Manage cardiac or respiratory arrest until return of spontaneous circulation and respiration, termination of resuscitation or transfer of care;
  3.  Recognize other life threatening clinical situations and provide effective initial care and transfer to reduce disability and death;
  4.  Describe & demonstrate a variety of techniques for maintaining oxygenation;
  5.  Recognition, anticipation and maintenance of difficult airways
