He's a great teacher. I love how he explains the mechanisms of needle insertion in a way that I can visualize it.

I am an anaesthetic nurse and I’m watching this course of lectures to learn more about anaesthesia from the anaesthetists perspective. Dr Warriner explains things in very simple terms which enables me to follow along easily. I have already learnt many things I didn’t know before. Very worth while watching if anaesthesia is an area of interest for you.
