Cardiovascular ???? Emergencies
By Jonathan M. on 18. October 2021 for Cardiovascular Emergencies and Shock

Information is clear and easy to understand. The additional supplemental information is beneficial.

Question at the end of the video is best and information is precise
By Anshul c. on 29. September 2021 for Cardiovascular Emergencies and Shock

Crisp and precise information is available I don’t like other thing is that if a topic is available for free without subscription it should be a complete topic not videos from here m there so that we can have a idea how well we have understood the topic as by watching only 1/2 videos of incomplete topic we can’t get a clear picture whether to get subscription or not

Best way
