    Wonderful lecture. My professor took three hours with less clarity than you did in under 20 minutes.

    This video has made my life a lot easier. After covering the sketchies for the various abx, I find myself struggling with utilization of the various abx on a case by case basis. You've done a great job developing an algorithm in this video. I look forward to watching your other videos in my 3rd and 4th year of medical school.

    Sir, I'm not a medical student...just a family nurse practitioner student doing my adult practicum. After being an ER nurse for 15, I have continued to struggle understanding why providers chose one antibiotic over another while a separate provider orders something different. You have made the basics of antibiotic therapy so much easier to follow. I am agree with Christine Hickey's comment on the effective use of baseball terminology. Thank you. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you so much for this video. Im an NP student and this makes it so easy to understand and great for clinicals. I took a screen shot of the finished ladder to take to clinicals and will be sharing with my peers. Great tips on what to know for the test too!

    I've just watched it once and have drawn everything after the teatcher and have learned much more in 18 minutes than by hours of studying our medical textbook. In Europe thay say that the education in the US is weaker and inferior compared to ours. Now that made me re-evaluate this dogma. Thank you very much!
