  hi guys
this is the page for all cardiology related important and confusing stuff. every input is welcome discussion, queries, facts, mnemonics, questions etc.
questions from all sources are also welcome except NBME as most people would like to use it to guage their prep just before the exam.
lets try making this the one stop page for all step 2 cardio stuff.
best of luck everyone
