That decel just gave me flashbacks :)

I know my time of returning to work is coming in the next couple of years and just reading all that again makes me want to crawl under the covers!

Have fun ;)

Wow! You do all your CE's at once. We break ours up over the two year period so we don't get brain fried! That reminds me...I have to renew my PALS and ACLS soon.

I think that is wonderful. I think it's important that everyone is continually being taught. I know it's not easy for you but it's a good thing. Do those dummies really work well?

I totally feel your pain. This week I am training to become an ECMO specialist. I think that my brain is starting to leak out of my ears and its only the first day.

*sigh*

Definitely a full plate but a skill definitely worth sharpening up on. I probably need to take another CPR course...it's been years!
