What is simulation?
According to David Gaba in his article *"The Future Vision of Simulation in Healthcare" simulation is a technique -- not a technology -- to replace or amplify patient experiences with guided experiences, artificially contrived, that evoke or replicate substantial aspects of the real world in a fully interactive manner.

What are high-fidelity simulators?
High-fidelity simulators offers the opportunity to work with training models that can react in realistic ways to the learner's treatments and/or interventions. These simulators provide the learners with an immersive, hands-on experience. The high-fidelity mannequin replicates authentic patient issues in a safe, non-threatening environment for students. The mannequin can provide a standard representation of a condition consistently for students to repeat a treatment or intervention numerous times to build student skill and confidence.
