Hello folks! I am starting this article by telling you how I came across the course advanced cardiac life support which as looked upon as an emergency medical training. My father being a doctor made me well aware of most of the common medical terms and few medication of common illness and happily I used to call myself ‘half doctor’.
Though I did not become a doctor (I was awful in mathematics and chemistry) I found myself very interested in the progress of the medical science and the new and advanced solutions they were making on finding the antidote of the life risking diseases.
