Conference Proceeding
In this article the author offers information on training in simulators. One author gave his suggestions when conducting the training, which includes having the participants run for five miles, letting the participants use the simulator in the same clothing, and having the simulator cooled of heated depending on the season. Another author explores the usage of simulators in medicine and surgery.
