Saving lives, one cert at a time

After 12 long hours, I am now ACLS certified! (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) AKA - I am legally qualified to respond in an emergency.

Thank you to Chris for an awesome and informative class (I wouldn't recommend anyone else - Hearts and Hoses rocks), and to my fellow classmates for the camaraderie.

Bradycardia... Pulseless electrical activity... Tachycardia... SVT... V-tach... V-fib... asystole...
I CAN RESPOND. I can help save your life!
At least I hope I can. If I remember it all.

One step closer to being an effective nurse. Maybe even in the ER or ICU :).

I like feeling like I know how to do something. That's a big reason I'm doing this anyway - to help those who can't help themselves.

This stuff is cool.
