Mnemonic for blood flow through the heart?

  1. 0
    I'm having an exam soon on the heart. We have to fill out a chart 14 steps long on the blood flow through the heart. While it seems fairly simple to memorize, I was wondering if any of you guys have a mnemonic for it or a simpler way to get it?

    Vena Cava, Right Atrium, Tricuspid Valve, Right Ventricle, Pulmonary Valve (semilunar), Pulmonary Artery, so on and so forth!

    Thank you very much!

    I did google, but was looking to see if anyone had any others they thought up, but haven't shared! I think I might go with Toilet Paper My Ass! It seems a lot of people are!

    I realize this is probably too late for your exam, but the Potsie song from Happy Days! LOL

    Here's another one. We watched this in A&P 2. The darn song is hard to get out of your head after listeing to it.

    I just draw the heart (it's actually a square). I know all the landmarks, but it helps to visually see it.

    This is going to sound just beyond silly, but this video helped me in A&P
