I found this an excellent presentation. Having a midwifery background my cardiac anatomy & physiology doesnt come as easy to me. This helped to refresh my knowledge and gave some great tips on how to remember things in particular looking for patterns in ECGs; preload and the rubber band.

The presenter was very knowledgeable in this area of practice and gave an excellent presentation. However, it would have great to be able to see her slides and whiteboard drawings clearly.

Although this was a very beneficial lecture, with relevant information to allow me to increase my knowledge and practice. I was unable to see the diagrams the lecturer was drawing. I believe my understanding would have been increased. Thank you
