Intraosseous (IO) cannulation is a life-saving procedure in critically ill children. Although its use in clinical practice is infrequent, it remains a vital skill for pediatric residents to learn and practice during residency training. Simulation-based teaching has been shown to be an important adjunct to medical education especially in practical skills acquisition.
