ANATOMY

Carpal Bones of the Hand:

Simply Learn The Positions That The Carpals Have Scaphoid Lunate Triquetrum Pisiform Trapezium Trapezoid, Capitate Hamate Carpal bones: trapezium vs. trapezoid location · Since there's two T's in carpal bone mnemonic sentences,

need to know which T is where:

TrapeziUM is by the thUMB, TrapeziOID is inSIDE.

Six Questions to ask a conscious patient or his/her relative in a life-threatening emergency prior to taking him/her to the operating room: SAMPLE?

Smoking history?
