Saturday also features a Worst Case Scenarios Managing OTO Emergencies in Practice Workshop. This four-and-a-half-hour course, taking place at Tulane Center for Advanced Medical Simulation & Team Training, is geared toward practicing otolaryngologists to prepare them for low frequency, high stakes emergency situations that they may not encounter often in their daily routine. Attendees participate in a rotation of six simulated otolaryngology emergencies with a cohort of six peer attendees. Each simulated emergency is done as a duo with a partner from the group. Following each simulation, a debriefing is held with the group and a facilitator and includes discussion of best practices for these situations based on published guidelines and available literature.
