Cardiologists and doctors in general have to take into account various diseases and issues which threaten the functions of the human heart. In these cases, an average knowledge concerning cardiac physics and functions won't suffice, especially for medical students.
Within his role as medical director of the cardiac rehabilitation department, Dr. Joseph Alpert regularly examines complex aspects including heart failure, disorders of the endocardium, and hypertension.
He will also discuss:
Great explanations and easy to understand and follow lectures. It has been a pleasure to learn from this teacher.
Dr. Alpert's videos really helped me with my studies. The explanations were clear and easy to follow. Thanks.
revising and new insights to old subject for an old timer like myself from a developing country like Papua New Guinea in the Pacific Thanks a lot A. Kulunga
Dr. Alpert is a very good presenter, but a little rushed and stiff, clearly not a medium he is comfortable with. Again, look for higher production value, I can get talking head slide shows from my school. Think 2D or 3D animation. This is great for the heart because it moves it does things. I have Netter, use it all the time. Show me tha SA-AV conduction path in 2D rotations, static and while the heart is beating. Make the POV an RBC and ride the currents through the heart, the lungs. Also, great for the congenital malformations. Show me a tet heart in motion, with flow lines , then show me that on U/S or ECG. And show me a patient with the condition. Step 2 isn't about the science factoids, it is about the clinical art, that means patients.
