Too detailed in some aspects of the assessment section from a paramedic perspective. Nonetheless, this video still reinforced some of the basic renal concepts as well as drumming in the importance of adequate renal perfusion.

Amazing interactive presentation. Having the quizzes in the module really breaks the monotony of just watching someone talk and really helps in retaining information.
