Cardiologists and doctors in general have to face various diseases and issues threatening the functions of the human heart. Therefore, average knowledge concerning its physics and functions won't suffice for students of medicine.
Within his role as medical director of cardiac rehabilitation, Dr. Joseph Alpert regularly examines complex aspects like heart failures, disorders of the endocardium or hypertension.
Moreover he exemplifies:
There were some points in the lecture were the lecture was in audible. I read along and there were just dots in the space that i didn't understand what was being said. Over all it was very helpful
I loved this course by Dr. Alpert. Very clear, I finally understand most cardio diseases. I agree also with most other collegues stating that perhaps would be useful to have responses to questions.
I was able to understand the topic well. Plus questions are provided to evaluate my learning. It was very good.
Explained everything in simple terms and I finally understand based on previous lectures and this one why we would use such drugs and when. Maybe more details into the mechanism (extra lecture) on such medications. I wished there were explanations on the questions. I'm not quite sure why aspirin would not be used if it could treat coagulating factors.
