Effective healthcare simulation education requires learners to interact with human patient simulators. Task trainers for procedural and surgical skill training play an equally important role. In addition, video playback can be used to enhance teaching and provision of audiovisual equipment should be considered. In full immersion simulation training it helps if the learners are able to suspend disbelief and interact with the human patient simulator and the simulation environment as if they were real. In these circumstances the presence of medical equipment and props is also essential. A vast array of equipment from the less expensive (stethoscopes, intravenous and airway equipment) to the more costly (endoscopes, ventilators, anaesthetic machines) may be required. Local health and safety policies should be followed in regards to equipment and props being used.
