AnatomyBRACHIAL PLEXUS: Roots, Trunks, Divisions, Cords, Branches

Randy Travis Drinks Cold Beers.

Robert Taylor Drinks Cold Beer.

CRANIAL NERVES: I-optic, II-olfactory, III-oculomotor, IV-trochlear, V-trigeminal, VI-abducens, VII-facial, VIII-acoustic (vestibulocochlear), IX-glossophrayngeal, X-vagus, XI-spinal accessory, XII-hypoglossal

  • On Old Olympus Towering Tops, A Finn And German Viewed Some Hops
  • You have I nose. You have II eyes. (I – Olfactory; II — Optic)

Innervation of Extraocularmotor Muscles:

  • LR6 (SO4) 3
  • LR6–Lateral rectus–> VI abductens
  • SO4–Superior Oblique–> IV Trochlear
  • 3–The remaining 4 eyeball movers = III
  • Some Say Marry Money, But My Brother Says Big Bras Matter More (what cranial nerve is Motor, Sensory, or Both)

BRANCHES OF FACIAL NERVE: Temporal, Zygomatic, Buccal, Masseteric, Cervical

  • Ten Zebras Bought My Car
  • To Zanzibar By Motor Car

CERVICAL SPINAL NERVES:

  • c345 keeps the phrenic alive (innervation of phrenic nerve)
  • c345 keep the diaphragm alive (innervation of diaphragm)
  • c5-6-7 raise your arms to heaven (nerve roots of long thoracic nerve innervate serratus anterior)

LOCATION OF THORACIC DUCT:

  • The duck is between two gooses (duck = thoracic duct)
  • 2 gooses = azyGOUS and esophaGOUS

ATTACHMENTS OF CHEST MUSCLES:

  • A lady between two majors.
  • Pectoralis major attaches to lateral lip of bicipital groove.
  • Teres major attaches to medial lip of bicipital groove.
  • Latissimus dorsi attaches to the floor of bicipital groove.
  • The “lati” is between two “majors.”

INNERVATION OF PENIS:

  • Parasympathetic puts it up; sympathetic spurts it out
  • “S2, 3, 4 keep the penis off the floor”
  • Innervation of the penis by branches of the pudental nerve, derived from spinal cord levels S2-4

“Lateral is less, medial is more.”

Lateral pectoral nerves goes through pectoralis major while medial p.n. goes though both pec major and minor

AORTIC BRANCHES:

  • ABC’S
  • Aortic arch gives off the Bracheiocephalic trunk, the left Common Carotid, and the left Subclavian artery

ORDER OF THINGS IN THIGH:

  • “NAVEL”
  • nerve, artery, vein, empty space, lymphatics

  • hade

    this is very good for study
    thank you very much

  • Praveen

    Need to correct the first entry
    I-optic, II-olfactory, III-oculomotor,
    to
    I-olfactory, II-optic, III-oculomotor,

    • arvind

      1 is optic okkkkkkk

  • The study-material is very useful
    thank you

  • please do the correction in the order of CN

  • DR NEERAJ

    very useful study

  • Muthu

    sir, please send the material for cranial nerves and function
