Description

When faced with a critical medical emergency, pediatric providers must be able to rapidly assess the patient, and be prepared to intervene with life-saving care, including invasive surgical procedures. These actions must be performed decisively and skillfully. Among these life-saving skills are: obtaining a surgical airway, obtaining vascular access, decompression of a pneumothorax or hemothorax, and pericardiocentesis. Our course will involve presentation of a series of common life-threatening scenarios in children, and include in-depth discussion of the assessment and interventions necessary. Participants will be able to choose the scenario topics from a list of the most common life-threatening situations with which they may be presented in their practices. Indications, techniques and potential complications of the surgical techniques mentioned above will be integrated in treatment scenarios. This unique training will be conducted in a live, hands-on, comprehensive 8 hour course utilizing high-fidelity pediatric simulation models as well as the full range of didactic material including videos, imaging studies, and detailed course syllabi. Each course will be limited to a maximum of 2 participants in order to provide individualized, personal instruction. All training will be conducted in the MGH Learning Laboratory and Simulation Operating Room as a collaborative effort between the MGH Divisions of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Critical Care. Course Instruction will be provided by faculty with expertise in pediatric emergency medicine, surgery, and critical care.
