The lecture in a very clear way explains the crucial mechanisms of Hypertension and helps to understand and remember forever these complex mechanisms

By zeen v. on 08. September 2017 for Sinus, Atrial and Ventricular Rhythm – Cardiac Dysrhythmia

ECGs are still ambiguous. there should atleast be a pointer on the screen to indicate what and where he is talking about. I am lost in his coordinates. Its like teaching map skills without a map legend
