OBEAM module session information

The AAOMS National Simulation Program allows participants to practice and master critical techniques for administering and monitoring office-based anesthesia. Unlike previous anesthesia emergency simulation courses, this program is standardized to ensure every participant experiences the same simulated events. Its state-of-the-art technology enables AAOMS to automatically evaluate the performance of every participant and pinpoint those areas that may benefit from additional training. In short, this program offers oral and maxillofacial surgeons an effective method of assessing their readiness to meet an office anesthesia emergency situation.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Review concepts and skills to obtain an understanding of sedation monitoring, supplemental oxygen techniques, techniques for opening an airway, bag mask ventilation using one- and two-person technique, proper laryngeal mask airway insertion technique and proper Airtraq insertion technique.
  • Demonstrate mastery of bag mask ventilation using one- and two-person techniques for both normal and difficult simulated ventilation situations, laryngeal mask airway insertion using proper technique and Airtraq insertion using proper technique.

Consent to Use Photographic Images and Recordings

Registration and attendance at, or participation in, AAOMS meetings and other activities constitutes an agreement by the attendee to AAOMS’s use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant’s or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, electronic reproductions as well as video and audio recordings of such events and activities. No individual or entity may photograph, audio record or video record any portion of the conference.

Meeting Attire

For this hands-on course, comfortable attire is recommended.  Scrubs will not be required.

COVID-19 safety

AAOMS’s top priority is to provide a safe and productive experience for attendees. As such, all participants must attest to their COVID-19 vaccination status when registering for this event. In accordance with the Cook County, Ill., mandate, proof of vaccination with a photo ID will be required onsite.

An individual is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Note: Acceptable vaccines are those with approval or emergency use authorization from the FDA – including Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen – or from the WHO, including AstraZeneca/Oxford, Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac. To learn more, view the full list of vaccines with final WHO EUL/PQ evaluation status.

Due to the Cook County, Ill., indoor mask mandate, masks will be required to be worn at all times at the event regardless of vaccination status. While AAOMS will do its best to maintain appropriate physical distancing, there may be areas and times during the event that close proximity to others will occur.

People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may NOT be protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.

If an attendee, speaker, staff or guest does not meet these requirements, he or she is considered NOT fully vaccinated and will not be permitted to attend. Contact the AAOMS registration team to request a registration cancellation if you are not able to attend.

AAOMS will continue to monitor CDC and local recommendations and update safety measures as appropriate. For the most up-to-date information on health and safety precautions and requirements, continue to monitor this page.
