Each scenario deals with a different type of presentation, from a farmer with a cough to a full blown arm laceration, as well as associated office based procedures. The DVD runs for approximately three hours. There is a PDF folder on the DVD which can be accessed via your PC's DVD drive, and contains additional notes about each case.
