Emergent Procedures Simulation Skills Lab
The Emergent Procedures Simulation Skills Lab teaches emergency medicine practitioners’ critical skills for the critical-care environment. The one-day course demonstrates and allows physicians to practice procedures that are seldom performed day-to-day in the emergency department because their clinical presentation is rare.
To become technically proficient in performing a variety of life-saving procedures relevant to the scope and practice of adult and pediatric emergency medicine, including:
- Inserting a Transvenous Pacemaker for symptomatic bradycardia
- Inserting a central venous catheter, securing intravenous access, and performing FAST scan under ultrasound guidance
- Performing thoracostomy procedures using traditional chest tube insertion methods and percutaneous chest tube insertion utilizing minimally invasive approaches
- Performing difficult airway adjuncts such as video laryngoscopy, tracheal tube introducer, intubating laryngeal mask airway, and cricothyrotomy
- Performing pediatric procedures that include intraosseous line placement, transtracheal jet ventilation, and neonatal and pediatric resuscitation algorithms
