On March 14th Dr. Valenzi repeatedly saved the lives of several very problem prone “high fidelity” mannequins at an Advanced Airway and Sedation Emergency Preparedness class held in Orlando by the Florida Dental Society of Anesthesiology.

High Fidelity Mannequins are the latest tool to help Health Care Providers train to manage emergencies. Unlike the simple mannequins used in basic CPR training, these have a pulse, cough, wheeze, and breath. They even simulate choking and their tongues swell when they have allergic reactions.

Like pilots who practice emergency procedures on highly realistic flight simulators, these mannequins help health care professionals hone our skills for situations that we take every effort to never see!
