    I would love to have any mnemonics you (board members) might have. I am posting this one on someone showed me at an NCLEX review couse I took.
    It is about fetal accelerations and decelerations!!!

    Just remember VEAL CHOP

    Variable Cord compression
    Early Head compression
    Accelerations OK
    Late Placental insufficiency

    Heart sounds:
    S3= Heart fail-ure (3 syllables)
    S4=Hy-per-ten-sion (4 syllables)

    And the effects of anticholinergics:
    Can't see
    Can't pee
    Can't spit
    Can't --defecate

    I got these from Nursing Made Insanely Easy, authors Loretta Manning and Sylvia Rayfield. They teach a NCLEX review class based on the book. It's all mnemonics, songs, jingles, that kind of thing. It really helped me.

    This one really helped me in the cardiac system when you need to know when you hear a murmur like on Mitral regurgitation you hear it on systole.


    ARD = Atrial regurgitation diastole
    ASS = Atrial stenosis systole
    MRS = Mitral regurgitation systole
    MSD = Mitral stenosis diastole

    Re ekg lead placement:
    White on the right, smoke (black) over fire (red)
    I learned this in a similar manner: Snow(white) over grass (green), Smoke (black) over fire (red), and a big pile of poop(brown) in the middle.

    I like your "white on right" thing
