I greatly enjoyed this presentation and especially Dr. Been's manner of teaching by frequently quizzing his students to cause them to think about what he is teaching and how the students as medical practitioners would analyze the patient's data and apply the total information to properly treat the patient without causing harm to the patient. I'm not a medical practitioner, just an retired chemical engineer. His students and those who are subscribers are fortunate to have such an excellent teacher.
