fue una conferencia muy clara,organizada,los medios que utilizaron para realizar las presentaciones fueron muy enteractivos ,muy claros, buena iluminacion. por lo tanto me ayudo a enteder el tema, me parecio que los subtitulos iban muy rapido y se me dificulta mucho porque hablo solo español.

Excellent lecture.

Excellent lecture. Crystal-clear on all levels. It gives me the confidence to have an informed opinion on Pertussis next time it comes in the differential diagnosis.

Excellent lecture.
By Jalil Z. on 29. July 2020 for Mycoplasma Pneumonia in Children

Excellent lecture. Really helps to dispel all the myths around M. pneumoniae. It does really seems like management is going to change in the upcoming years regarding this disease.

Excellent lecture
By Jalil Z. on 29. July 2020 for Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP): Management

Excellent lecture as usual from a master teacher. The most important points about management are highlighted. It would have been great to hear the teacher's opinion about PO vs IV treatment, indications of drainage in case of empyema/abscess. Otherwise, I particularly liked the part about which vaccinations, why they are preventing pneumonia. Very well stressed I think. I'm going to use this when discussing with parents.
