As always this course was excellent. The presenter was very knowledgeable in this area and made very good connections to real life situations with examples. My only issue with the course is that when Joanne was looking to the screen with her pointer when discussing ECG's I could not see the screen so I could not relate to what she was referring to. Overall a very good lecture.
