This is a GREAT video Adam. I have a background in the sciences, have had plenty of college classes that should have left me with a clear understanding of how exactly the heart pumps the blood … maybe because my last college course was 33 yrs. ago, I have forgotten a LOT :). I’ve even had mitral valve repair in Feb & gained a better understanding of the regurgitation problem. BUT this video REALLY brought it all together in such a clear & concise presentation that I realized there was still some misunderstanding on my part!! I will be saving this for sure.
