Simulation has significantly advanced from the days of Resusci Anne and basic cardiopulmonary resuscitation training. Training has also progressed from hypothetical stories followed by only verbal responses to the use of high-fidelity, computer-controlled mannequins which allow early learners as well as advanced clinicians to explore various domains of sedation practice while preparing for unusual and/or life-threatening events. Medical simulation has the advantage of permitting deliberative practice in an active learning environment without putting patients at risk. With increasing demands for patient safety and provider accountability, simulation will play an increasing role in provider training of psychomotor tasks, knowledge, and communication skills.
