In med surg, I have to memorize lab values (i.e. BMP, CBC, Lipid Panel, etc) and i'm having a hard time memorizing each of them, especially when the values are so similar.
My biggest problem right now is the differences in the BMP, Sodium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Calcium, all so similar and really killing my brain.
If anybody has any suggestions on how to memorize them? or maybe some mnemonics? I bought a Lab values made incredibly easy book, but it won't come in for a week or so and I have a test tuesday!
anything will help!!!
