Objective Sedation is a depression of consciousness varies between anxiolysis and general anesthesia. It is used to facilitate diagnostic tests and minor surgeries. Respiratory complication is the main side effect of the sedation. His Early diagnosis and adequate management prevent serious complications such as hypoxic brain damage or death. A development of a learning program of sedation is required. Simulation as a teaching tool has improved the clinical expertise of learners. The objective of the study is to evaluate the impact of a simulation based medical education program on the performance of non-resident anesthesiologists for the management of complications related to sedation.
Methods This trial is randomized, controlled and single blinded. Non-resident anesthesiologists, without prior training on sedation, are included and randomized to receive or not a simulation based sedation learning. This program includes a pharmacology sedatives learning, teaching technical skills for airway management on low fidelity mannequin and high-fidelity simulation scenarios of these complications. Two evaluators, single-blinded, visualise the recorded performance of residents in simulation session. The evaluation is based on a performance checklist developed by Delphi technique. It compares the performance of the residents within the same group before and after the simulation based medical education program and to compare groups of residents.
Data analysis The sample size is based on similar simulation studies. The results are compared with the variance analysis for repeated measures. The difference in performance before and after simulation is compared using a t test.
The investigators hypotheses that improved performance scores following the simulation based medical education would put the dot on the importance of simulation as a learning tool.

Experimental: Simulation based sedation learning (Intervention Group)
The program includes online learning. It is followed by development of interactive presentations, based on simulated cases or simulated patients (actors), low fidelity simulation for specific technical skills as well as high fidelity scenarios of complications related to sedation.
