  • I found the course material to be above average. It was a good review for me. The ekg materials at the end of the course were excellent and the distinction of the different type of conditions that make up ACS were clearly defined. The description of angioplasty was excellent as someone interested in interventional cardiology i could just imaging doing the procedure from your description of PCI.

What I would highlight: I found the course material to be above average. It was a good review for me. The ekg materials at the end of the course were excellent and the distinction of the different type of conditions that make up ACS were clearly defined. The description of angioplasty was excellent as someone interested in interventional cardiology i could just imaging doing the procedure from your description of PCI.
What could be improved: The medical management of acute coronary syndrome could have been emphasized a bit more etc here is what is to be done for a case of a non-stemi myocardial infarction . Some ekg's should have been involved in the final assessment. Nevertheless an excellent course.
Would you recommend this course?: Yes
