The authors, medical and nursing faculty, as well as simulation specialists at Oregon Health Sciences University, introduce and clarify the different types of simulation equipment available for health care education as well as describing the roles and limitations of the technologies. Simulation fidelity is described along with the various levels of simulators: low fidelity, moderate fidelity and high fidelity. Advantages and disadvantages of computer-based simulation programs are discussed along with other categories of simulation such as task and skill trainers versus full-scale simulation. The article provided valuable knowledge and information regarding simulation equipment, its uses and limitations.
