Patient simulation is now considered to be a valid method for the education and evaluation of providers of sedation. Using full-scale human simulators to provide a realistic setting, participants can acquire skills for patient monitoring, administration of sedation medications, and the recognition and management of critical events. Although obstacles to its implementation exist, it appears likely that simulation training will become an integral part of training for providers of procedural sedation.
