Excellent speaker
By Michelle W. on 29. July 2021 for Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

Excellent speaker! Clear, thorough, and made difficult subjects easier to understand. I really enjoyed her videos.

Excellent content, but it can be improved
By Zuleica Citlalli E. on 22. July 2021 for Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)

The content is amazing, the videos are short and high yield Things I'd change: 1. Add a refresh of physiology on the different disease explanations 2. Dosing protocols on the treatment videos 3. A more protocolized approach regarding diagnosis and treatment of diseases. For example: Diabetes, how do you diagnose it, how do you treat it (with the most common treatment modalities), special considerations of the treatment (insulin regime choosing and dosing) and lastly what paraclinical aids we can use to confirm or rule out the disease we think and its complications (where applicable: Ej: creatinine in diabetes to rule out kidney failure)
