Another limitation is the lack of existing data to support the need for simulation-based training. While HPS and teamwork training have a great deal of face value, few studies offer any solid proof of training advantages over more traditional methods. Simulation is inhibited by the degree it can mimic reality. The fast-paced, high-stress environment of a critical care unit is difficult to simulate. Simulators are cold and plastic in appearance and even with the capability for a human voice to be generated via microphone, there are limits to how real the devices can seem. There is some fear that technology will dehumanize health care, and give students an unrealistic expectation on how to react in everyday situations. “While critical event training
