FEW QUICK ALPHABETICAL MNEMONICS FOR CS

April 11, 2008

1. Listen for carotid Bruits with the Bell of the stethoscope. However on the picture on the right, the doc doesn’t use the bell. Who cares? It is just a picture for a website.

2. Meningeal signs: 2.1. Kernig test–>extend the Knee after you bend the hips and the knee to 90 degrees.
2.2. Brudzinski test–??? Can somebody help here?

3. McMurry’s test assesses for Meniscus injury.

4. Tinel’s test for carpal Tunnel syndrome. The second test is Phalen’s test. How to remember the name PHALEN. OK, carpal tunnel syndrome presents with pain/discomfort and numbness/tingling in the PHALANges of the hands.
