Great lecturer with an engaging style. I would love to sit in on one of her lectures in person. As I am taking on the challenge of better ECG recognition in my CPD for this year. Getting back to basics with this lecture is a great start

Very easy to follow update on electrical, conduction pathways of heart , trouble shooting, and recognising abnormal pathways and what this means to give better outcomes for the patients.
