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.

The presenter goes to a great deal of trouble to describe the electro physiology of the heart , ectopics, effects of ischaemia and reasons for changes in ECG readings associated with particular conditions.
