Very short, explains nothing, maybe a good video for patients but not for doctors, I felt disappointed

Positive and Negative not adequately shown. Not all equipment used

Two major errors: 1. Not subcutaneously but intra-dermally. 2. LESS than 10 mm for positive test. Should be withdrawn and commentary reworked.

PPD is injected intra-cutaneously not sub. Most difficult is the reading which is not really explained: 2 directions measurement, etc.. The positivity of the test depends on the indication sometimes 2 mm, 5 or 10 and even 15 mm is used

to the autors.

1. Please hear the speak in the last sentence "A positive test ...... if LESS than 10 mm". Should this be changed to MORE THAN 10 mm ?
2. The speaked instruction to administer subcutanously; very superficial (sub-epithelial) might be stressed in the speak.
m.r. Dr meyer,

short and comprehensive video material but when one to measure the diameter o the skin reaction he has to take in account the transversal diameter( verbal presentation but with longitudinal measure image, I think).
