Not helpful and makes even the most comprehensible topic difficult to understand
By Emanuele D. on 02. March 2017 for Ischemic Heart Disease

"Now once this patient is giving you such a history, what would you want to give that patient automatically? You give this patient something in which there is going to be relief from the chest pain. Correct? What does that mean to you? It means underneath the tongue anytime that there's chest pain, you place nitroglycerin correct? Sublingual." I'm sorry, and i really don't want to sound rude, but this is not how a professional teacher should speak. When i hear this i just get very confused, and i already have my teachertoconfuse me. Dr. Raj use this rethorical questions all the time and they're very annoying. What i like about lecturio's lessons is the fact that almost all the teachers use very easy sentences when they speak, and they use a lot schemes and pictures to be more clear.

Excellent !

Significant Gaps in Management
By Hamed S. on 18. February 2017 for Management of Angina and Myocardial Infarction

The lecture on management was extremely superficial and not suitable for board exams. No mention of: Newer agents such as ticagrelor/prasugrel When you would choose PCI vs thrombolysis risk stratification of NSTEMI patients with the TIMI score and subsequent angio When you would use CABG first line This talk I feel is more step 1 then step 2. Step 2 needs to focus more on decision making rather than lengthy talk on the basic pathophys I had to go back to references to Toronoto Notes to fill this gap
