Airway Management: A Lecture and Hands-On Workshop: Workshop Director: Jennifer Dearden, MD. Faculty: Elizabeth Eastburn, DO, Mara Kenger, MD, Charles Nargozian, MD, Sharon Redd, MD, Sulpicio Soriano, MD, Stephen Zgleszewski, MD
This workshop emphasizes airway assessment , decision-making and management. Our goal is to enable participants to manage any airway obstruction which they may encounter in their practice of medicine or dentistry. 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.

“GAIN” - Skills for Greater Resilience: Gregory Hammer, MD
GAIN is an acronym for Gratitude, Acceptance, Intention, and Nonjudgment. This workshop will explore the GAIN elements with personal perspective of participants and closed with experiencing GAIN meditation. GAIN practice can substantially reduce stress and increase well-being in as little as three minutes a day.
