Every year, cardiovascular diseases kill more people than cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes combined! Renowned scholar and editor-in-chief of The American Journal of Medicine, Prof. Joseph Alpert, will guide you through the essentials of the cardiovascular system. You will benefit from his vast medical experience and learn about the components of the circulatory system and basic diagnostic techniques. This course is structured as follows:
I chose this rating because after watching the video just once, I had a 90 - 100% pass rate on the follow up quizes. I did not need to review each video clip. The information was clear, short and exact which gave me an opportunity to fully understand and absorb the content being discussed. The animations are extremely well organized and clear - indeed a useful component of this learning environment.
I chose this rating because Dr. Joseph Alpert MD. takes his time in his lecture and emphasizes information about the layers of the blood vessels and their similarities and differences particularly the thickness of the tunica media in the arteries he drives home the point very well.
This lecture is quite helpful to get knowledge about cardiovascular system and its function.Using this basis knowledge we can further know more about the cardiovascular system.
Explanation was simplified which then made understanding of the topic at hand simplistic. However, an opinion of mine would be that human specimen images should be shown before the explanation rather than later on in the lecture .
