Training methodology having emerged primarily over the last two decades, simulation in health care has arisen from the idea that students should never practice on the patient for their "first time". Simulation makes it possible to try out the errors and to repeat the skills over and over, in a reproducible way and in the most realistic possible environment, but with no harm to the patients, a risk socially intolerable. Simulation implies multiple methods from simple role-playing schemes to most powerful experiments on high-fidelity mannequins. In all cases, simulation implies a strictly codified structure: briefing, scenario, then debriefing. Indeed, debriefing represents the cornerstone of the teaching process allowing, both technical and non-technical skills acquisition through a work based on self-criticism. It should be noticed however that, although medical simulation has very clearly provided evidence of its effectiveness in skills acquisition, appropriate behaviours or application of algorithms, it has not demonstrated any benefit in terms of patients' care quality. Further research is therefore needed to validate this last assumption, which represents the very objective of any evolution in medicine. [less ▲]

We discuss here the case of a 49 years old man who is admitted in the emergency department in acute heart failure. He suffers of severe alcoholism and malnutrition. This heart failure is a high-output heart failure. The diagnosis is beriberi, a disease caused by a deficiency of thiamine (vitamin B1). The treatment is intravenous administration of thiamine. Clinical response is spectacular with normalization of the clinical setting within a few hours. [less ▲]

Epidemiological studies, more specifically those related to analytical epidemiology are a major determinant of evidence-based medicine. When classifying the value of the different epidemiological studies, based on their level of causality, cohort studies are ranked higher than case-control studies, mainly due to the fact that they allow direct collection of information on exposition to risk factors and health consequences. However, case-control studies can also provide an important information, if a specific effort is dedicated to the analyses of the circumstances of the exposition. Meta-analysis increases, by pooling them, the statistical power of individual studies of limited size. Meta-analysis can also be considered as an important source of evidence in the perspective of evidence-based medicine. [less ▲]
