After a two week hiatus, The WM brings you mnemonics with a food theme to satisfy the minds of all those hungry learners out there.
Anti-arrhythmics are tricky to remember and here is one I came across on USMLE world for the class I anti-arrhythmics: “Double Quarter Pounder/ Lettuce, Tomato, Mayo/ More Fries Please!”
“Class Ia: Double Quarter Pounder“
Double = Disopyramide
Quarter = Quinidine
Pounder = Procainamide
“Class Ib: Lettuce, Tomato, Mayo“
Lettuce = Lidocaine
Tomato = Tocainide
Mayo = Mexiletine
“Class Ic: More Fries, Please“Moricizine, Flecainide, Propafenone
More = Moricizine
Fries = Flecainide
Please = Propafenone
Leah submitted another great mnemonic this week for the most common tumours metastatic to bone:
“BLT with a Kosher Pickle”
B = Breast
L = Lung
T = Thyroid
Kosher = Kidney
Pickle = Prostate
Thanks for reading! Good luck to all the poor souls who are already getting ready to go back to school!
