How to remember Fowlers, Trendelenberg's etc??

  1. I've got a prac exam in the morning and I'm going CRAZY!! Most things stick in my head, but I just cannot make all the Fowlers and Trendelenberg's positions and why they are used to STICK!!

    Sometimes what helps is just hearing from other people...nothing fancy, but in the exam if I remember one of your comments it will help. The stupidest things make me remember - like a certain font, or a way of stating it. Crazy huh?

    Anyone got any ways to remember these?

    very, very good!! i especially like the supine one -- i never even thought of spine and supine being related. good ways to make them stick!
