Fewer words, slower delivery focussing on diagrams please.
By Barbara Jones G. on 11. February 2020 for Introduction to the Cardiac System

I found these lectures to be delivered in a less didactic manner than others and thereby more difficult to cease and remember the specific details needed. Fewer words, slower delivery focussing on diagrams needed.

 
Really Enjoying Cardiology!
By Robert G. on 02. November 2019 for Introduction to the Cardiac System

I especially liked the MRI of the heart and seeing the actual orientation of the heart with the RV in front of the LV in the frontal plane....not what I thought was the case.
