Variation in closeness to reality of standardized resuscitation scenarios : Effects on the success of cognitive learning of medical students.
CONCLUSION: For simulation-based learning the outcome depends not only on knowledge, practical skills and motivational variables but also on the onset of negative emotions, perception of own ability and personality profile. Simulation training alone does not appear to guarantee learning success but it seems to be necessary to establish a simulation setting suitable for the education level, needs and personality characteristics of the students.

Conclusions Sevoflurane enhances phagocytosis of bacteria by lipopolysaccharide-challenged macrophagesin vitro andin vivo via an inducible NO synthase –dependent mechanism. Thus, sevoflurane potentiates bactericidal and antiinflammatory host-defense mechanisms in endotoxemia.
Conclusions Over the dose range studied, R-dihydroetorphine exhibited a plateau in respiratory depression, but not in analgesia. Whether these experimental advantages extrapolate to the clinical setting and whether analgesia has no plateau at higher concentrations than investigated requires further studies.
