The content of the case study is well-thought out, using a progression of pathology for applicable teaching-learning of coronary artery disease. It has great potential for group activity in the classroom, lab, and post-clinical conference. It is easy to use. It does lack interaction other than distribution on paper,e.g., online links to video, heart sounds.

Very good, realistic case study, but consisted of only a pdf file. Content is very helpful for the early nursing student.

Technical Remarks:

Much more technological capabilites could be incorporated. Narration would improve this immensely. Even if someone is just reading the case study like a book reader would read a story with emotion, etc.
