Fire in the Operating Room

Patient is presenting to the operating room for left-sided parietal burr-hole to evacuate a subdural hematoma. Participant is informed that the plan is to perform the procedure under monitored anesthesia care (MAC). Participant will enter the scenario with the case already underway, and will need to assess the patient’s vitals, position, and medications/infusions to provide anesthesia for the case. In subsequent states, participant must recognize the presence of an operating room (OR) fire and respond appropriately. Finally, case is successfully complete by providing supportive care to the patient and recognizing the need for induction of general anesthesia with intubation in order to assess the fire injury, as well as for the disposition of the patient to the ICU for admission and monitoring.
