Well my ACLS certification that I acquired prior to 4th year of med school is good until July 2003. My residency program is giving the ACLS during orientation but would not be REQUIRED by me until next year. MY QUESTION: Would it behoove me to renew my ACLS prior to internship simply because my previous ACLS program was pretty weak (and I don't remember squat)? Or should I just take that time and golf prior to the madness? I'm a little worried about not being fresh on all of that ACLS crap. OR should I just skim my ACLS book? Anyone in the same boat? Am I worrying for no reason? Shock, shock, shock, epi, shock, lidocaine, shock, and now amiodarone? Anything else I need to know? I think I just need something minor to stress about.
