“Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that a medical emergency can in fact happen in my office to one of my patients. I wish I had already taken the ALSDA course and gotten prepared correctly. In the middle of the emergency, I realized that I needed to be the traffic cop in all of the frantic activity. I wasn’t ready for it. Don’t make the same mistake I made. Get ready now.
