Simulation in Dental Anesthesia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Simulation is a technique in teaching and assessment that has grown in popularity in medicine over the last two decades. Simulation may be used to train people in specific tasks, as well as to train teams to work together effectively. Multiple advantages to training and evaluating personnel using simulation can be had. Teaching in a simulation environment can be done in real time, with the instructor in the simulation room, or can be accomplished by debriefing the participants after the simulation is completed. When one is setting up a simulation training program for staff, one of the first orders of business is to decide what things you want to teach or train. Drug related complications, including allergic reactions, improper dosing of drugs, and inadvertent drug swaps are not uncommon occurrences in a busy outpatient surgicenter. In designing and rolling out simulation scenarios, goals must be set.
