]Okay I lost my awesome response, PALS, I bet what scares you is leading the MEGA CODE. Here is what is going to happen, you will be chosen to lead a team in a vignette. You will have one shock scenario that transitions to a cardiac scenario that if you do ok will resolve to ROSC. Shock will start as either Hypovolemic, Distributive,Cardiogenic, or Obstructive,each has a few subtypes but learn to recognize the and you are gold.
The shocks will transition to cardiac cases. The is only one Brady, SVT (non-shockable) (cardiovertable), PCT and A-Fib, and PEA/Asystole (non-shockable). Only a few meds, atropine, epi, epi, amiodirone, epi, amiodirone, epi, epi, and epi. Helpful to remember NS by the bunch, diphenhydramine, and a splash of iontropes, if you catch my drift. Make page 107 your friend.
If inclined learn the classes of the meds, which are catecholimines, antiandenrgics, etc. than the use becomes automatic through all the class ACLS, PALS, NNRP.
SO AFTER ALL THAT JUST REMEMBER THE 4 TYPES OF SHOCKS AND 4-5 RYTHMS. you'll be gold just remember page 107 and the algorithms, the written test is just retention of the videos and critical thinking.
Sorry for the wordiness, but there is a lot in the book that will make you chase your tail.
