Very good course, it helps you to understand better the way the heart works by simplifying the contents.

I've been through almost the whole course, and I found it extremely helpful!

A little unclear
By Linn F. on 29. May 2017 for Myocyte Conduction Pathway and Atriventricular Block (AV) – Heart Rate and Electricity

I've been watching through and writing notes your videos til this one (thank you so much for making this easy and understandable while staying on a detailed level that I need for my exams) BUT there's something that wasn't that clear to me. What did you mean on the slide about type 2, where you mentioned Mobitz? Sentence nr2 of the 3 didn't make much sense to me.
