Abstract

With great interest we read the systematic review and meta-analysis by Osborne et al. on the effectiveness of high- and low-fidelity simulation-based medical education in teaching cardiac auscultation. We congratulate the authors for their efforts to provide a systematic review on simulation-based education. While the authors conclude that high-fidelity simulation has no benefit in improving cardiac auscultation knowledge or skills compared with low-fidelity simulation, we believe that this conclusion cannot be supported by the authors’ work.
