Good lecture

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-07 for Tachyarrhythmias (Tachycardia): Treatment

Brilliant. Once again the view from afar gives a clearer understanding of the whole topic. What I did not understand are the indication for Beta-blockers, Digoxin and Flecainide. Thank you!

Excellent lecture as usual

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-07 for Tachyarrhythmias (Tachycardia): Definition

I understand the comment of the previous student. However, I think the goal of these lectures is to give the appropriate knowledge to use as a resident. It's not really important to know more details about it. When a patient has a tachycardia, it's important to know if it's physiologic or pathologic and the cause of it. So the lecture helps to determine the physical origin which helps to point to the cause. Thank you!

Excellent lecture as usual

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-07 for Bradycardia (Slow Heart Rate)

These are the best explanations regarding bradycardia that I heard of. I would have liked to hear more about other drugs that could cause bradycardia though. That being said, I think that now I cannot forget the different blocks. So thank you very much! Also cool that the case of neonatal bradycardia is talked about.

Excellent lecture as usual

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-06 for Pericarditis

Excellent lecture as usual. I would have liked an explanation on why the pain is relieved when the patient is leaning forward in pericarditis. I liked the emphasis on the overlap between myocarditis and pericarditis. Thank you!

Excellent lecture as usual

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-06 for Cardiomyopathy in Children

Excellent lecture, I think it's a group of disease which is not often spoken about.

Excellent lecture as usual

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-06 for Acquired Myocarditis

Excellent lecture as usual. I would have liked to see the epidemiology (and mortality) but the info concerning the ethology and clinical presentation is enough to raise the suspicion of myocarditis in a sick child.

Excellent lecture!

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-06 for Infective Endocarditis (IE)

Excellent lecture as usual. I particularly appreciated to have the epidemiology and the clinical differences between the different organisms.

Excellent lecture!

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-05 for Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD)

This lecture made once again a complex topic seems a simpler one. I understand the teacher removes as many numbers as possible and I appreciate it. However, I would have like for this chapter a bit more statistics regarding prevalence. Thank you!

Excellent lecture!

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-05 for Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)

I think it's an excellent lecture. However, I do agree with another member, I would have liked to see for these diseases the prevalence number of the diseases. Otherwise I think the relevant information to think about the disease is in the lecture.

Excellent lecture!

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-05 for Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA)

I know I'm keeping saying "excellent lectures". That's the way I feel I about them. Thank you!

Excellent lecture!

Excellent lecture!

by Jalil Z. on 2020-10-02 for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS)
