The Basics

This 3-day course is for practitioners who don’t do any form of sedation, utilize oral sedation, or provide conscious IV sedation. The foundation for managing any emergency is knowing how to manage an airway and recognizing the signs of an impending problem.

The goal is to build your airway management skills by learning to place and hold a facemask, place airway adjuncts, and ventilate an apneic patient. The more seasoned doctors will also be able to place laryngeal mask airways. These skills will be practiced on manikins and then on live patients.

The most common and preventable catastrophes in anesthesia are airway in nature.

  • Training opportunities include practice performing IM, sub-Q, and IV injections
  • Learn to understand the vital signs monitor and make sense of the sequence of dealing with an emergency
  • A full day is devoted to lectures on managing medical emergencies and a comprehensive review of CPR
  •  There will be 21 hours of continuing education credits.
