In addition to the poster presentations, John Schaefer lectured on performance assessment and Michael DeVita on patient safety in the team work session. William McIvor provided a workshop entitled ┐Using the Lung Man Medical ASL 5000 Simulator for Mechanical Ventilation Training.┐ Tom Dongili and John Schaefer conducted a workshop on ┐Everything you didn't know that SimMan could do.┐ It was also of interest that a large Japanese group from 10 different universities presented data on successful use of the WISER difficult airway management course.
Steven Schmitt and Steve Palumbo presented Sim-Medical through a colorful booth and information brochures. Michael DeVita was elected Workshop Chairman for 2006 and Ake grenvik was invited to serve as a chapter reviewer for the next volume of the textbook ┐Simulation in CCM and Beyond.┐
