Sedation/Anesthesia Education Curriculum of High-Risk Patients (HYBRID COURSE)
This hybrid continuing educational program consists of both on-line and in person didactic (16hrs) components along with a strong hands on clinical component utilizing high fidelity manikins to stimulate 10 cases. Course Objectives: Pre-anesthetic patient assessment, physical evaluation, pharmacology of sedative agents, appropriate sedation/anesthetic techniques, intra-operative monitoring, perioperative complications, records keeping along with recovery and discharge of medically compromised/high risk patients including but not limited to geriatrics, obese, special needs, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, endocrine disorders, genetic disorders, obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and other systemic conditions. Enrollees will manage and complete 10 cases utilizing high-fidelity patient simulation with the use of computerized manikins that simulate real-life scenarios. All of the cases will be performed and documented under the on-site instruction and direct supervision of a licensed dentist authorized to administer sedation/anesthesia to high-risk patients.
