Mar 12, '06Quote from jgwe4eRe ekg lead placement:
White on the right, smoke (black) over fire (red)
I always had a hard time with this one, so I came up with my own related to experience.
First there is snow(white), then mud season (brown), and the grass comes out (green obviously).

That is how I remember it anway.

Mar 13, '06You always have the option of making up your own as you are more likely to remember your own. And, you can make your own as nonsensical or nasty as you like and no one else has to know!

Apr 21, '06Trouble figuring out which eye is which?
OS is left eye
OD is the right eye
You can remember which one is the right eye (OD), because you can make the D into an R - You just have to draw to stick legs on the bottom of the D. Write it down on paper, you'll see what I mean (it's hard to show you when all I can do is type)Last edit by mopnglo42 on Apr 21, '06
