Very mixed reveiw.
By Jermey B. on 03. June 2017 for Changes in Body Fluid Compartment

Did good job explaining some of the expected changes, but a poor job at others and simply stated direction of arrow without explanation. Overall, a good lecture but definitely room for more detail to be discussed. Also, very surprised effects of acute blood loss/trauma was not covered.

A little disappointed
By Jermey B. on 20. May 2017 for Renal Physiology

I felt it lacked detail of specific transporters, and no references to any diseases or drug MOAs. Not very detailed for medical review/test prep.

helpes to understand easily, i recommend it.
