Realistic in situ simulations of cardiac arrest scenarios, conducted in actual clinical settings without advance notification of participants, identified several latent errors in a hospital's emergency response system. Dr. David Gaba, a pioneer in simulation in health care, was interviewed for AHRQ WebM&M in 2013.
