Advanced Airway Management


Positive Outcomes Emerge from Skills and Knowledge

When practicing sedation dentistry, advanced airway management is a critical skill to keep you and your patients safe. In this one-day course, through repetitive hands-on training, you will become proficient at applying different techniques for airway management and resuscitation.

Course Objectives

  • Master the five patient types that compromise effectiveness when applying manual resuscitation with a bag valve mask.
  • Apply surgical advanced airway techniques on animal tissue.
  • Perfectly practice patient assessment, airway and advanced airway techniques, external defribillation and intravenous and intraossesous access using patient simulators.
  • Recognize the signs of an airway emergency using monitoring equipment appropriate for the dental office.
  • Understand the most effective administration of epinephrine for an acute emergency.

Don't assume that an emergency won't happen in your office. Be prepared.
