Informative and easy to understand!

I had the pleasure of being lectured about electrocardiogram interpretation by Dr. Siegal during my cardiology training. Dr. Siegal captured these lectures in videos for self-education and training. They are informative and easy to understand in a field where ECG interpretations can be intimidating. I wish I had these videos during my medical school and training years.

Great visual examples

The videos are great for people who are visual and audio learners. They go at a pace that is easy to understand and there are good visual examples.
