Course Information

Participants will receive an orientation to the simulation environment and patient mannequin at the beginning of this single day course. The participants will engage in providing team-based patient care covering a range of perioperative critical events in a variety of settings.

Each participant will play an active role as a main anesthesia care provider for at least one scenario, and function as helpers or observers for other scenarios. Building on the basic components of hypoxemia and hemodynamic disturbances, simulated clinical events will also incorporate complex or rare critical events as well as challenges in teamwork and communication.

This course is NOT a test and performance is NOT GRADED. Rather, each scenario is accompanied by a detailed, interactive peer debriefing led by an instructor. Advance preparation is not necessary.
