Very good presentation that outlined how to assess your patient and the signs and symptoms of their deterioration. It included assessment methods that we usually use to do this assessment, but expanded on these tools, and gave us more to consider when doing this assessment. The audio and visual was very poor at times, and I missed lots of words due to the poor quality. She frequently demonstrated things out of screen, so it was again dificult to see what she was explaining.

THis was a very good refresher on preforming neurological assessments on our patients and what is considered normal and abdnormal. I also learned some valuable updates on assessment techniques no longer used which was very good. The fading microphone, especially in the early part of the video was a little distracting and was hard to hear what lecturer was saying, but that is not related to content of material which was very good.
