Time Management: In the medicine world time can either be an ally or work against you.
And for that reason I see it best to manage my time. For instance, on a normal day, I will wake
up very early so as to sort all personal issues in the morning so that they do not have to interfere
with my work hours back at the hospital. This makes me be able to manage all my tasks in the
hospitals smartly, diligently and in a time friendly speed, because in medicine, every second is so
precious to waste it. One second can be all the difference in saving a person’s life and that is why
I keep my day routines in check and now work like clockwork in my mind. Remembering that
overworking is also a main problem in a hospital setting it is important to work within the
recommended working hours so as to avoid a medical practitioner’s body from overworking
otherwise this affect his efficiency in the next operations and fixture schedules. So it is vital for
all cardiographers and any medical practitioner to have this skill.
Time management skill enables me to exercise mindful control at the time I spend in
every activity whether at work or at home. It enables me to work smarter instead of harder which
increases my efficiency. I have improved my time management over the years and this has
helped me enhance my performance and using less effort to achieve effective strategies and my
desired work-life goals. Due to proper time management I have been able to make focus,

improve my professionalism, increase workflow and quality in my line of work, avoid stress,
build my reputation, improve relationship with the patients and colleagues, accomplishing
appointments and deadlines as well as life and work balance.
Technological Skills and Information Technology: I have gained this skill since all the
machines I use are all based on information gathered using technology. Thanks to the adoptions
of new technology by the institutions I have gotten the chance to work with, I have learnt how to
use most of the technology that is used to monitor the patients. The min technology used in our
hospitals for the time being are: Ultrasound, the X-RAY Cameras, electrocardiograph machines,
tomography machines and magnetic resonance imaging machines. The skill to use this
equipment is learnt through observation and day to day usage until you know how to use them
without any supervision. I am glad that all the medical practitioners in the hospitals I have been
training and working at are friendly and also eager to show the young professionals the way to
use this imaging equipment.
Working with the imaging equipment also goes hand in hand with the use of information
technology. The data I get while monitoring the patients has to be turned into useful information
which has to be used by the doctors and the patients. The hospitals require that I store and
manage the data. As a cardiographer, my skill is meant to go over the data and comprehend how
it can be used by the doctors to solve the problems and make well-versed conclusions. Becoming
well versed in using the computer in activities such as power point and spread sheets enables me
to make reports compile monthly and annual reports. I t has also enabled me to compile all my
findings in research and learning.

Team Building Skill: Being a cardiographer means that I am an integral part of the
cardiac science team. The information has to come from me to the doctors concerning any
cardiograph session I carry out. Therefore having communication skills will enable me to
disburse information well which avoids conflicts between the departments and thus building the
team. I learnt that when I am able to contribute to listen to the ideas of my colleagues and being
able to taking part and replying their feedback enhanced the team mentality. This in turn build
the team. When it comes to problem solving, as a member of the department I have mediated
when two of my colleagues were arguing about taking the evening shift. I helped them by
listening to both of their arguments. We all came to an understanding that we flip a coin and who
ever chooses tails will take the shift for that evening. My action helped the whole team to
maintain the workflow as well as peace between my two colleagues. This improved the goals of
our department as well as the trust and confidence that the colleagues have in each other.
