Excellent overview of cardiac anatomy and physiology and how preload, afterload and contractility assessments directly correlate with the function of the heart. The lecturer was clear and explained the topics extremely well. The only downside is the camera angles which caused some of the lecturer's drawings to not be shown while she was explaining them.

Great in-depth lecture. Well thought out and easy to understand. I do wish that the slides could move or that the video could also focus on the white board as when she was using diagrams to explain points of interest i was unable to to see them and had to re watch to try and understand whatbshe was trying to explain. But overall great lecture.

Fantastic lecture. Amazingly informative though I would think of changing the title of the lecture to " Cardiac Assessment" not Cardiac Anatomy and Physiology.
