this series of lecture is too light to learn with it : this is a list of facts, but not an explanation of what's actually going on so as to give sense to the material

Good review
By Giorgiana R. on 05. June 2021 for Postoperative Care (Part 1)

I Like It.

Well presented, clear, informative. May be there should be links to the relevant basic science talks. You should add on case based problem solving discussions.

Very clear

Very clear, simple and easy to understand. And there is a relative translation which is suitable for beginners
