Photography Issues :

need larger original or stock image replacement, suggest more relevant image, Images should be shown as a stepped process info graphic

Photography Comments :

Some of these images on the treatment slide are not specific to burn victims, some are fine. overall I think we can condense images and reduce slides.

Textual Content Issues :

Condense bullets across multiple slides, bullets should be shown as a stepped process info graphic

Textual Content Comments :

These bullets are presently across a bunch of slides and they are in no particular order that I can see. These instructions can be greatly simplified over fewer slides.
