I’m from medical background (cardiac technologist), I’m 23years old, now I have developed interest in coding, how can I start a career in this field, can someone please guide?

Try learning some common programming languages like python and java! Whether you want to teach yourself, invest in a coding bootcamp, or even go to college for it is ultimately up to you.

After or during that, I HIGHLY recommend applying to some EMR companies, alternativley medical manufacturers often need devs too. Start at some easy positions and work your way up, some places will even offer compensation for college! Companies like Medtronic, Johnson & Johnson, and Abbott Labs all have remote and in person positions across the USA, there's tons of opportunities that would fit your resume even if you're just barely starting to learn how to code.

I absolutely feel that technology and the medical field are an amazing combination, career wise. Follow your heart, I wish you the best of luck on your journey!

(Relevant creds: I was once a software developer for cardinal health, when the pandemic hit I started working as a medical assistant and attending med school. I still engage in programming as a hobby, primarily in med-centered projects like OpenEMR!)
