Are there any tricks to help to remember things like which kind of arrythmia, etc. Any help would be appreciated.

    I visited the site u recommended, it was excellent. I have been a RN for 2 years and have only witnessed 2 codes. I,m one of those nurses who during a code feel very inadequate for lack of knowing what to do and wondering why they are doing what they are doing. I will be taking the ACLS class soon.
    We were given the ACLS provider manual to prepare but I stopped reading it. It just was not sinking in. This site was very helpful. Thank you.
