TOP REVIEWS FROM MEDICAL EMERGENCIES: AIRWAY, BREATHING, AND CIRCULATION
The courses are designed in such a way that you can understand the concepts even if u have no prior knowledge in biology .Really helpful and teachers are exceptional
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 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.
A few things missing here and there but very skilled and knowledgeable instructors with great information on lots of emergency medicine material for aspiring EMTs!
