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.

So well explained and dynamic.

The way that the doctor explain and teach each topic is fabulous. Obviously I recommend first read about this topic and then watch the lecture. Thank you doctor.

Well rounded and informative course. More typical dosage info would be useful. Recommended to RT, PA, AA, and med students in clerkships.
