Baseline wasn ’t great (NBME 15). Am I screwed?
Less than four weeks until Step 1. I took NBME 15 and scored the equivalent of a 198 on it. Which means I have what it takes to actually pass...(which i suppose is reassuring). Anyway, with this in mind, can I reasonably do well on it given the time frame? I for sure know my deficits, anatomy, embryology, neuro.. but obviously I lack all over the place given this score. What is worse, a step one failure or a low score? Any advice would be wonderful. I’m obviously an anxious wreck. (Source: Student Doctor Network)

ACLS - Epi in VF/pulseless VT
During our recent ACLS training, we were told that epinephrine shouldn't be given right away during CPR if the patient is in VF/pulseless VT - but 2 cycles of defibrillations should be done before that? I've been in situations where epi is given right away no matter the rhythm in ACLS, so I just wanted to ask what you guys do? Do you really avoid epi and wait for the defibrillator and just keep doing chest compressions during these situations??? (Source: Student Doctor Network)
