Dr Bord review was clearly presented. It makes it easy to remember

Short, concrete, useful review.

The reason I rate this as 5 stars is because it was a simple, concrete, and very useful way to remember the key points on DKA at the emergency department that is often full of patients. I'm writing from Colombia.

Good basic introduction

Well designed and delivered, but content seemed more directed to pre-med audience.
