Physical distancing restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic have dramatically impacted medical education, challenging educators around the world to create interesting, novel ways to engage learners remotely. Virtual resus room (VRR) is an online simulation tool which can be used to supplement or temporarily replace in-person simulation in times when it cannot be held. The infrastructure of the Virtual Resus Room is simple, using separate audio and visual inputs. The visual portion is provided by a shared Google Slide that has been designed to feature the essential components of a resuscitation room. Every participant and facilitator will have the same slide open on their computer – so it can be interacted with in real time. Audio is provided using Zoom or any teleconferencing program of your choice. Through this, the facilitators can present the case and provide pertinent verbal updates. The team members can communicate to delegate roles, verbalize when they have completed tasks, and brainstorm together. [Shah C. Natl J Integr Res Med, 2021; 12(3):100-104]
