Excellent course
By Andre a. on 02. July 2021 for Renal Physiology

I love the explanations. To be honest, I am already used to great lectures by Lecturio. I expect no less.

 
Best Renal physiology ever!

Good overview of the axis that controls blood volume
By T. Nicole W. on 09. April 2021 for Integrated Control of Blood Volume: Overview

I thought this lecture was relatively easy to follow. The video brings forward the relevant pathways to highlight them and Dr Wilson explains their function and why they are causing the response they do. I can understand that if you watch this one out of series it might be a little hard to follow but like most of the lecturio videos, you should watch the entire series once through and then review specific videos at your leisure.

 
Keep up the good work
