The course is a full day of immersive simulation education. Participants will spend time being familiarized with the high-fidelity mannequin in the simulated environment before taking turns to manage realistic anesthesia-inspired critical events.
The simulated scenarios will focus on decision-making in the immediate management of hypoxemia and hypotension in the extended anesthesia workplace. In addition, it will also cover aspects of crisis and resource management including: communication and teamwork skills.
State-of-the-art audiovisual equipment is used to enhance the event debriefing which takes place after every simulated event.
It has been designed to fulfill one requirement of the American Board of Anesthesiology's (ABA) Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology.
