Our “practice-changing” program offers various hands-on stations which shall reinforce learning with diagrams, pictorials and videos. There will be ample practice time with a variety of airway equipment, taught by our expert airway faculty.

Capnography Workshop: Bhavani Kodali, MD
Over the years, capnography has become an integral part of monitoring sedation to enhance patient safety. Respiratory issues contribute to a major proportion of fatalities during sedation procedures.

In the last three decades, various professional societies have implemented capnography to enable clinicians to diagnose respiratory depression before it can result in irreversible damage. Dentistry is no exception, and undesirable circumstances have led to death during sedation procedures.

The workshop on capnography will provide a comprehensive understanding of capnography. After the workshop, the clinician will be able to apply the knowledge of capnography physiology to maximize the ability to forecast impending hypoxemia. This ability that will prevent desaturation during sedation procedures. The workshop will also demonstrate various CO2 sampling devices used to monitor respiratory status during sedation. This will enable clinicians to choose the method that is best suited to their clinical practice. More importantly the clinician will also understand the limitations of capnography, so that correct interpretations of respiratory status is made during sedation.

The Art of Magic for Anxiolysis and Healing: A Special Hands On Workshop: Kevin Spencer, MEd
The MAGIC THERAPY workshop empowers healthcare professionals with a valuable new tool for distraction and anxiolysis. This approach has demonstrated positive results in the reduction of anxiety, building rapport and trust, increasing environmental mastery, providing opportunities for choice and autonomy, and improving affect and self-concept. This workshop is a “hands-on, interactive learning experience” so come prepared to wave a wand and create a little magic!
