Assessment Heart And Neck Vessels

When someone goes to a medical practitioner with a heart problem, it is up to the medical practitioner to decipher what is wrong with the heart and this is mainly done by assessing the vessels of the heart and neck to look for any abnormal activity. The quiz below is designed to check out how skilled you are. Give it a shot!
