Short and accurate
By Ramir D. on 27. February 2017 for Introduction to the Cardiac System

The lecture was filled with a lot of the important basic information for the Cardiac System. The lecturer was also speaking with a clear voice and the quiz questions were evenly spaced out throughout the lesson.

Good talk more discussions on treatment indication
By Hamed S. on 18. February 2017 for Cardiomyopathy

Great talk, It would have been wonderful to explore some of the other causes of restrictive cardiomyopathy incl hemachromatosis, sarcoidosis etc.. Also i felt the indications for ICD therapy wasn't clear enough.
