Occasionally, my mind can’t take being serious and writing copious amounts of text, so instead I leave you with the first in a two part series of why they should never have let me pass pre-clinical years.
(Yes, this is what I tried to pass off as studying. Yes, I did almost fail that exam.)

The second in a two part series entitled why they never should have let me pass pre-clinical years. This is also why I’m a medical student and not an artist.

I’m in LOVE LOVE LOVE with these mnemonics from Mosby’s for Nursing. They’re pretty helpful (for me) and the cute cartoons really help. May not work for everyone but I thought I’d share with my fellow Nursing followers :)

MED REVIEW MONDAY
Furosemide aka Lasix is probably the most commonly used diuretic. It is used to reduce body water content (usually by inducing urination) for two conditions: hypertension or edema. It is the #1 treatment for edema associated with congestive heart failure (aka left-sided) but is also used for patients with cirrhosis or renal impairment. It is a loop-diuretic, meaning it acts on the Loop of Henle in the kidney. As it is NOT a potassium-sparing diuretic, the most common adverse effect is electrolyte imbalance – patients’ labs should be monitored as well as input & output. The word lasix stands for “lasts six hours,” referring to the duration of the drug.
