Confounders and confusers (part 1)

As you know, TheWeeklyMnemonic has a few blog posts series running. Well, it is time to start a new one. This is the first of the “Confounders and confusers” series where tips and tricks for differentiating confusing terms will be shared. As usual, if you have a doozy in your back pocket, please share!

This week’s confuser is “miosis vs. mydriasis”.

Miosis = indicates small pupils because an iota is a very small quantity

Mydriasis = dilated pupils


Hope you like this new series! Have a wonderful week.
