Simulation has advanced from the days of Resusci-Annie and basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation training. High-fi delity, computer-controlled mannequins allow earlylearners and advanced clinicians to explore various domains of sedation practice and prepare for unusual or life-threatening events. This modality has the advantage of permitting deliberative practice toward mastery without putting patients at risk. With increasing demands for patient safety and provider accountability, simulation is likely to play an increasing role in provider training.
