Result additionally uncovered that ECG machine ( x = 3.84),VCD ( x =3.82), web ( x =3.79), and remotely coordinating( x =3.78) were the every now and again got to wellbeing data assets. Much of the time used wellbeing data assets were; CT check ( x = 3.85), ECG machine ( x =3.73) and web ( x = 3.62). Findings further revealed that pattern recognition from experience ( x = 3.32), critical thinking without emotion ( x = 3.16), hypothesis updating ( x = 3.607) and perception based confidence ( x = 2.97) were the core skills used by clinical specialists in clinical decision making.
