ECG needs work
By Simarbeer S. on 06. August 2019 for Cardiac Physiology

I checked the entire ECG / EKG lectures and they confused me more than they helped. The article 7 steps was a good start in my opinion but a video lecture of someone walking me through the steps would be better. The lectures don't cover how one should go about reading the ECG and what to infer from the data provided. This would come in handy to read them not just for the step exams but the clinical rotations as well so maybe add or change them up. ECG in Boards and Beyond could be looked at as good example for that in my opinion.

The overall lecture topic is fine, However, because of being a rigid subject per se, more fun and slowing down might help further

To update: the receptors of the heart plus their Gs/Gi binding could be mentioned in the presentation

It has always been a joyful experience to watch your lectures, Dr. Wilson. One of the main reasons I love Lecturio is having excellent lecturers like you! Thank you.
