This lecture was amazing!!! Increased my knowledge of arrhythmias in relation to the working of the heart and ECG interpretation in such an easy, understandable way. I thoroughly enjoy Joanne Reading's approach to her lectures and the simple way that she explains otherwise complicated functions of the heart. I look forward to watching more of them and increasing my knowledge further.
