    Re 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).

    As for the left side, I try to remember that financially that it is always better to be in the black, than in the red (financially).

    That is how I remember it anway.

    You 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! Medical students are notorious for coming up with some pretty skanky stuff.

    Trouble 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)
