I enjoyed this lecture as I found him more laid back and funny - meaning I didn't find myself drifting off. He was obviously knowledgable about the topic.

It was good to learn about what dry suction means. I thought it meant no water was to be injected. It was also helpful going through ways to troubleshoot issues with chest drains
