Pediatric Hospital Medicine 2012

High-Fidelity Simulation of Sedation-Related Respiratory Emergencies.
Jason Reynolds, Mick Connors, Gary Geis, Greg Hollman
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Key concepts and screening tools for anticipating or avoiding respiratory emergencies.
  2. Recognition of respiratory emergencies associated with pediatric sedation.
  3. Management of respiratory emergencies associated with pediatric sedation

Deep sedation has become the standard of care for many diagnostic and therapeutic pediatric procedures. Pediatric hospital medicine physicians are increasingly being asked to provide this service. However, the background, training, and experience of many pediatric hospitalists may not be such that they feel comfortable managing the uncommon but serious complications associated with deep sedation.The purpose of this workshop is to simulate these uncommon but serious events. The workshop has been adapted from the Sedation Provider Course developed by the Society for Pediatric Sedation. The course material was developed based on evidence generated from the Pediatric Sedation Research Consortium regarding the incidence and nature of adverse events in the setting of pediatric sedation. The workshop involves a combination of didactics and hands-on, high-fidelity simulation.
