TOP REVIEWS FROM MEDICAL EMERGENCIES: AIRWAY, BREATHING, AND CIRCULATION
Everyone must do this course. This course is made really well and i liked that they've also given mnemonics to remember difficult things.
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.
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!!
I found this course very informative, beneficial, easy to understand, I am glad to have come across this course and learned many important things about medical emergencies, THANK YOU, APPRECIATED.
