    Mneumonic device for remembering questions to ask emergency room admits:
    Car? (circumstances of event)
    Please (precipitating events)
    Listen (location of event)
    To This: (Time of event)
    Watch (when symptoms appeared)
    Underage (unconsciousness after injury?)
    Alcoholics (arrival time in ER)
    Heading (hospital admits previously?)
    Home (previous history/health status)
    And (allergies)
    Maybe (medications)
    Flattening (fears for safety)
    My (meal, time of last)
    Poodle (period, time of last menstrual)
    Dog (primary doctor, name and location of)
    Tonight (tetanus, date of last immunization)

    Everyone knows to make the ABCD (airway breathing circulation and neurologic disability) assessment first. Then as soon as possible, further assessment/intervention is done, which includes:
    His (health history)
    Head (head to toe assessment)
    Is (insert monitoring devices -- caths, ECG, arterial lines)
    So (splints for fractures)
    Wide (wound care)
    Olivia (other interventions)

    No, there's nothing else to do in Natchez, Miss., than make up silly crap!

    Thank you everyone for this mnemonic thread. It is really very useful.

    Like BrandAidMaid, I would love to know something in Pharm. For instance someone mentioned about Cholinergic drugs and beta adrenergics, that was so good.

    Assess for treatable causes of changes in cognition and behavior. The mnemonic DEMENTIA can be used to remember potential causes:
    • D: Drugs and alcohol—including over-the-counter drugs
    • E: Eyes and ears—disorientation due to visual/auditory distortion
    • M: Medical disorders—e.g., diabetes, hypothyroidism
    • E: Emotional and psychological disturbances—e.g., mood or paranoid disorders
    • N: Neurological disorders—e.g., multiinfarct dementia
    • T: Tumors and trauma
    • I: Infections—e.g., urinary tract or upper respiratory tract
    • A: Arteriosclerosis—leading to heart failure, insufficient blood supply to heart and brain, and confusion

    One for where to put the leads for tele

    white on the right- snow over grass,
    fire over smoke, and
    chocolate over the heart

    If anyone that is a student has trouble remembering water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins one mnemomic is
    Take your birth control with water--- Vitamins B & C are water-soluble the rest are fat-soluble

    Hope it helps if I can think of any more, I'll post them
