Dr. Hicks is the founding physician of Veritas Cardiovascular in South Carolina. He noticed that patients were often confused by their diagnoses and why they were supposed to be taking certain medications. Medical staff can all feel the pressures of time during consultations, and on many occasions patients can leave without really understanding the explanations that have been given to them. His aim was to produce material that would enable his patients to have a greater depth of knowledge about their conditions and, in doing so, gain more insight and control over their lives.
These videos provide not just a helpful insight for patients but are also an excellent resource for healthcare professionals and Dr. Hicks has been kind enough to allow us to share these on Medical Exam Prep.
The first video explains how the heart works and gives a detailed platform from which further knowledge can be built:
The second video discusses atrial fibrillation:
The third video looks at congestive cardiac failure:
Medical Exam Prep would like to thank Dr. John Hicks for contributing this post.
