**NOTE: students are not allowed to come to the lab during other groups lab time.
There are limited seats available for the students who are taking a make-up session

Intro to OMFS
Read the course syllabus!!
Read Rolas e-mail, details below!!
Sessions are mandatory and have strict guidelines for completion look in your personal schedules as
these vary person to person
DO NOT COME LATE (even 5 minutes) OR UNPREPARED you will NOT be able to participate
and you will fail the session.
If you feel you need more time before your session you may come in to practice with Dr.
Levine Please sign up on this google doc. Space is limited.
The following is from the course director Dr. Levine:
Students who do not receive credit for the local anesthesia training sessions will fail the
course and be required to attend remediation.
If you do not pass the session you will also NOT be able to administer local anesthesia
in clinic. Please remember that this training is mandatory to pass this course and is a
requirement for the promotion of clinical privileges at the college.
Students are expected to prepare for and actively participate in their assigned guided local
anesthesia simulation-based training sessions, which are held over six days (over two
consecutive weeks) from 7:30AM-8:30 AM in October (sessions are: 10/14, 10/15, 10/16,
10/21, 10/22, 10/23). All sessions will take place in the Oral Surgery Clinic on the second
floor of the dental school (Clinic 2S).
Students must attend only their assigned sessions. Switches are not permitted without
permission of the Course Director (Dr. Levine). If you have a conflict with your assigned
session, you must see Dr. Levine before the first session (10/14/14) to make alternate
arrangements.
Sessions begin promptly at 7:30 AM. Students are expected to arrive on time, in clinic attire
(as per the student dress code in the student handbook) with a clean white NYUCD lab coat
and visible nametag, and attend the entire session. Students who arrive late will not be
permitted to attend and will not receive credit for the session. Students who leave early will
also not receive credit.
Students must bring with them a hard copy (printed version) of their completed quizzes
to the session. The answers to the quiz may be typed or handwritten. The quiz is posted on
NYU Classes under Assignments and is due at the beginning of the session. Emailed
versions and late submissions will not be accepted.
During the session, students will be expected to: 1) demonstrate safe handling of the local
anesthesia armamentarium, 2) identify anatomical landmarks for the delivery of infiltrations
on the maxilla and mandible, and inferior alveolar nerve and long buccal blocks, all on
anatomical manikins, and 3) demonstrate proper injection technique (infiltrations, inferior
alveolar nerve and long buccal nerve blocks) on manikins.Students are not required to inject
each other. If two students want to inject each other, both students must agree to administer
and receive injections.
Keep in mind, this will NOT be taught in the session so you must come PREPARED and
ready to give injections.
To prepare for the guided local anesthesia simulation-based training sessions, students
must review the online student guide for local anesthesia (under Resources on NYU
Classes), and chapters 11, 12, 13, and 14 in the Handbook of Local Anesthesia by
Malamed (6th Edition) as on VitalSource. Please watch the first two videos below:

Troubleshooting:
If you are having difficulty with On-line Medical Emergency Module
(e.g., accessing the module, printing certificates, taking exit exam),
please reset your password.
You must complete the entire module to get a certificate; skipping
through the module too quickly will result in errors. If you do not
wait for the video to finish on a page the course cannot be
completed (i.e., wait for next button in bottom left hand corner
of the screen to flash indicating that you can proceed to the next
page).
The vendor manages the online Medical Emergency Module. If you
still cannot gain access to the site or print certificates, you must
contact tech support for assistance.
The email address for tech support is nyu@healthcare-learning.com
The contact information is located on the front page of the module
site.
