confusing
By maddy k. on 10. February 2018 for Tachyarrhythmias (Tachycardia): Definition

Confusing, difficult to understand (too many synonymous names)- its difficult to comprehend what its meant with orthodromic etc.

 
Clear and precise
By Xiaofeng W. on 15. January 2018 for Pediatric Cardiology

These videos get in the point, summarize what are the important things to know in each topic for the test, and help me not to be saturated with all the information in the book.

 
Fantastic lecture
By Francesca W. on 29. December 2017 for Pediatric Cardiology

This is a very well planned out lecture on some well developed material. The doctor explained it well and even broke some of it down into a pneumonic. Very clever and well done!
