Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of increasing role of simulation technology in anesthesia education. A brief history of the role of simulation is discussed, spanning across the introduction of the first medical simulators of the 18th century to the role of modern simulation technology in education today. The capacity in which anesthesia education is conducted has dramatically improved with the advancement in simulation technology and use of part-task and full-body simulation trainers. In this chapter, focus is placed on the indications and utility of simulation for airway management, bronchoscopy, and central line placement education, as well as whole-body simulation models and their role in practicing complex scenarios. Key elements that ensure a successful simulation scenario are outlined, and the advantages and barriers to the use of simulation technology in anesthesia education are discussed.
