Thumbs up
By Maylyn G. on 27. March 2017 for Heart Sounds

Good pathofis; understanding the basics helps alot; its alot of info and trying to wire it in my head isnt easy; But it was a good explantion

 
Management section can be improved
By Hamed S. on 27. March 2017 for Hepatitis: Diagnosis and Management

Very comprehensive discussion. It would have been worthwhile to talk about criteria for starting treatment for chronic Hep B (e.g DNA count vs symptoms and livers functions). Also unclear if treatment of HepB is curative. The hepatitis talks did not mention genotypes of Hep C at all which is important for treating the condition, particularly in countries where access to direct acting antivirals is not available. Finally the talks didn't mention what percentage of patients with chronic Hep B and C go on to develop cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.

 
What about parasitic causes?
By Hamed S. on 27. March 2017 for Gastrointestinal Infections

Good coverage but can be improved further. I would have liked to also see a talk on the parasitic causes of diarrhoe and management of those. Also not sure how we would go about dx salmonella. Wasn't very clearly stated in the lecture

 
TB lectures need improvement
By Hamed S. on 27. March 2017 for Influenza A and Tuberculosis

The TB lectures can be improved, In particular the approach to dx of a pt with suspected TB and in particular when you would consider tissue biopsy. Also the approach to dx of latent tb isn't clear. E,g performing a chest x-ray in high risk patient populations followed by mantoux testing. No mention of what size reaction is considered positive in different population ie immunosuppressed healthcare workers and the general population. The lecture discusses the treatment of active tb but no discussion of treating latent TB. No mention of when you would treat contacts of the index case. Finally serious side effects of TB treatment were not adequately covered. Isoniazid (need for B6 to decrease risk of peripheral neuropathy and megaloblastic anaemia) rifampicin and liver toxicity and drug interactions, ethambutol and occular toxicities and need for monitoring of visual fields and pyrazinamide (hepatoxicity).
