Simple and easy to understand! Wished there was more to come!
By Forin H. on 15. May 2018 for Testing on Patients and Therapy – Heart Failure

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.
