ECG for Everyone ACLS & PALS
This course teaches how an ECG pattern is generated, normal sinus rhythms, and identifying characteristics of the most common arrythmias taught in ACLS and PALS. It integrates this knowledge with the Guidelines 2010 algorithms. This video based course we have found for teaching how to read ECG's and the basic ALS algorithms. It works well as a stand alone prep for ACLS & PALS or partners well with "Underlying Causes of Cardiac Arrest" to give a complete prep for ACLS or PALS. This course offers 4 hours CE.

Healthy Lunch Ideas
As school starts again lunches that taste good, are easy to prepare, and are healthy rise to top of the list for top importance. Here are a few ideas that we like.
Mock “tuna” Salad
1 cup chickpeas (canned or pre-cooked and drained
1 stalk celery
½ small onion, finely chopped
3 Tablespoons Vegenaise (or any eggless mayonnaise)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mash the chickpease in a small bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Spread on whole grain bread as a sandwich or serve on a bed of lettuce.
Total calories per serving 122.
Raw vegetables with Garbanzo Peanut Spread
16 ounce can chickpease, drained
3 Tablespoons peanut butter
1/3 cup lemon juice
¾ cup water or as needed
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor until smooth. Add more water if necessary
Variation: Instead of using peanut butter, use tahini (sesame butter) and add some sautéed onions and parsley.
