Product Reviews
Lee M - 09/07/2018
I now have a better understanding of Pediatric drowning
Brian Gillett - 09/04/2018
This was an excellent way to learn and refresh current, evidence-based acute-care. I'll now have better situational awareness for potential non-accidental injuries and an evidence-based approach to evaluating potential c-spine injuries.
