TOP REVIEWS FROM MEDICAL EMERGENCIES: AIRWAY, BREATHING, AND CIRCULATION
I loved the skill videos and the role plays. The exams help the recall process. Overall a good way for every Doctor, medical student and EMT to learn and relearn these skills online.
This course was very informative. I learned alot. I am very Thankful for this oppourtunity to gain more knowledge about Medical Emergencies.
Everything was explained keenly and whatever they may not have covered in the videos they provided reading articles and sites for independent studies. Loved it!!
This course really helpful and interesting, but I think some of the quiz' answer is incorrect, maybe it need some re-evaluation, thankyou.
