thank you so much
By Laura P. on 14. April 2017 for What is the Cardiovascular System?

I've found you in youtube in one of the summary about Cardiovascular System. I'm a first year medical student and for me histology it's very difficult. As I've seen in your videos everything is perfectly explained. I'm using subtitles because sometimes you speak so fast but It's very interesting. I'm taking notes. I'm understanding better all topics!!!!! Thank you so much!

Not just for doctors or nurses
By Ryane C. on 06. February 2017 for Venous Diseases

I really like the vascular portion of this system. I find it helpful. I am studying for my RVT for ultrasound and this helps a lot. I hope there will be more information as far as physics and data interpretation for ultrasound. I think radiology field has a lot to know and not just pertaining to doctors or nurses.
