Great for learning the basics of cardiac physiology
By Gabriel F. on 21. October 2016 for Cardiac Physiology

Very good overview of cardiac physiology. Explained many concepts very clearly!

Excellent, but please add 10 extra questions to be attached to lecturoro''s points,to be reviewd by the students!
By fredrick g. on 14. October 2016 for Cardiovascular Pathology

Excellent but please add at least 10 Qs to the end of each lecture's paper points that the listener would reviewed by him self and not be answered by any. Questions must be of mixed of all points that include major points in step 1 and some important points connected to it from step 2. Also questions may include use biochemistry or anatomy spotted Dx or Rx guiding maps of pictures!

Very simplified yet very detailed.
