Why Take ACLS Online Certification


ACLS certification is an absolute necessity in today’s medical landscape. ACLS or Advanced Cardiac Life Support is a skill that all medical professionals should know if they hope to save lives and succeed in the medical field.
ACLS certification online is not rushed, for you can work at your own pace on ACLS online, BCLS online, and PALS online tests. These tests are extremely valuable, as they are valid for two years and renewal is quick and easy. Online testing often takes half the time that in-person live demonstration classes take.
Having proper credentials like ACLS certification is a necessity for applying for jobs, specifically those in hospitals, as a first responder, or someone responsible for watching children. It is wise to have these certifications before you even apply.
Online testing affords the opportunity to study the free prep materials and cardiac life support algorithms closely before you test. If you fail, you may just study the materials again or take a practice test and retest for free.
Recertification is cheaper and websites such as www.CPRTrainingFast.com offer VIP renewal programs, which allow medical professionals to renew their credentials in an easy, fast, and affordable manner.
It is advised that you look for any updates to life support, ACLS, BCLS, or PALS guidelines before you test to ensure that you give the proper care to those who need it. Up-to-date skills are necessary.
BCLS certification is more basic life support credential, but all people should have this skill. BCLS is synonymous with CPR and all good citizens should be able to practice it.

Getting Off Opioids With Medical Marijuana

By Nadia Kounang, CNN





In 2016, opioids killed more Americans than breast cancer. The drug overdose epidemic has become one of the most concerning public health issues of recent time, and in an effort to stem the tide, moreg and more patients and doctors are turning to pot over pills. For much of the past two decades, 51-year-old Angie Slinkertook a cocktail of narcotics, antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications to manage the pain stemming from a car accident in 1998. She had between 50 and 60 surgeries, but her pain persisted, and doctors kept giving her more pills. "It was just a vicious cycle," she told CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. "You started taking something for pain, and before you knew it, you were into another surgery. Which brought on anxiety." To treat the anxiety, doctors prescribed more pills. And when she felt depressed, they added even more medications. All the drugs left in her a fog. She spent most of her days in bed. When Slink…

Study Reveals new Danger from E-Cigarette Flavorings

Electronic cigarettes, commonly known as e-cigs or vapes are a new and developing technology, yet little is known about the medical risk they pose to users. A new study offers insight into the effects of e-cigs. The flavoring used in nicotine juices may pose a risk to blood vessels and the cells within the heart. Although e-cigarettes were originally marketed as a cleaner alternative to smoking or a tool to help smokers quit, “They have also gained popularity among young people. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there was an increase in middle and high school students using e-cigarettes from 2011 to 2016.” Ultimately, the study concluded that, “Our work and prior research have provided evidence that flavorings induce toxicity in the lung and cardiovascular systems. Flavorings are also a driver of youth tobacco use and sustained tobacco use among smokers." Due to the cardiovascular damage that e-cigs cause, it is recommended that medical professio…
