ACLS...

stands for Advanced Cardiac Life Support and I have to study for a practical and verbal test soon to ensure my skills are up todate as far as knowledge of certain aspects of emergency intervention goes, such as how to defibrillate someone, without electrocuting myself or any of my colleagues in the process...I'm pretty sweet with that, but I always seem to have trouble recalling the relevant dosages of all the emergency drugs ~ amiodarone, atropine, isoprenaline, adrenaline....they sound quite musical when said together... The cardiac rhythms have a great variety of manifestations too! AF, VF, VT, Junctional rhythm, Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome and so on, all the squiggly lines on the monitor...ah, my head hurts!
