Airway Management: A Lecture and Hands-On Workshop for Basic and Advanced Airway Management Skills
Workshop Director: Jennifer Dearden, MD
Faculty: Jerry Chao, MD, MS, Chinyere Egbuta, MD, Neena Seth, FRCA
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.

The Powers and Application of Virtual Reality: A Special Hands-On Workshop
Workshop Director: Hunter Hoffman, PhD
Hunter Hoffman, a pioneer of VR therapy, the co-originator of Virtual Reality analgesia and designer of SnowWorld, will show you examples of VR goggles currently available and affordable, and easy to use, and will briefly discuss what is on the near horizon.

Each attendee will get to try several interesting immersive therapeutic virtual reality experiences including
a) the illusion of presence in VR (“being there” in the 3D computer generated world),
b) the illusion of embodiment of an avatar (cyberhands that you control with your own hands),
c) SnowCanyon pain distraction for patients that need to stay still during the procedure,
d) Mindfulness River (for patients that need to stay still during the procedure), and
e) 360 videos seen in the VR goggles, custom designed to educate patients and staff.

No previous video game or VR experience is required of attendees. This hands on workshop will be a relaxed and friendly interactive environment with emphasis on VR demos, but incorporating time for questions and discussion and for brainstorming with attendees about how health care providers can use VR during sedation outside of the operation room to make medical procedures less painful, less scary and more fun (e.g., during IV placement, MRI scans, dental procedures, and beyond). VR is a powerful non-pharmacologic analgesic and anxiolytic. Used in addition to traditional sedation, VR may improve patient cooperation, and could potentially reduce adverse events and pediatric toxicity (e.g., by reducing the level of sedation required by some patients). VR analgesia has been shown to reduce pain during a wide range of medical procedures, and fMRI brain scans show VR reduces pain-related brain activity. VR is now affordable. Give it a go! .

“GAIN” - Skills for Greater Resilience
Workshop Director: 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. This proven path toward personal resilience can be implemented by anyone, anywhere, in just a few minutes a day.
