List of Three’s in Anatomy


You have I nose. You have II eyes. (I – Olfactory; II — Optic)

——————————————————————————–

Standing Room Only -Exit of branches of trigeminal nerve from the skull S

V1 -Superior orbital fissure, V2 -foramen Rotundum, V3 -foramen Ovale

——————————————————————————–

For the order of nerves that pass through the superior orbital fissure:
“Lazy French Tarts Lie Naked in Anticipation.”

(Lacrimal, Frontal, Trochlear, Lateral, Nosociliary, Internal,
Abducens)

——————————————————————————–

22 Muscle of mastication- Lateral Lowers- lateral pterygoid is the one that opens the jaw
4 Muscles of Mastication MTPP( which could be read as “Empty Peepee”) -masseter, temporal, lateral and medial pterygoids —

——————————————————————————-br>
Arteries as they come off the external carotid:

Superior thyroid, Ascending pharyngeal, Lingual, Facial, Occipital, Post Auricular, Superficial temporal, Maxillary

Some Anatomists Like Fucking, Others Prefer S & M

———————————————————————————

Innervation of Extraocularmotor Muscles: LR6 SO4 3
LR6–Lateral rectus–> VI abductens

SO4–Superior Oblique–> IV Trochlear

3–The remaining 4 eyeball movers = III Oculomotor

——————————————————————————–

ABC’S of the aortic arch!

Aortic arch gives off the Bracheiocephalic trunk,

tthe left Common Carotid, and the left

Subclavian artery

CERVICAL SPINAL NERVES:

cc345 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)

——————————————————————————–br>
Cranial Bones
Annoying, aren’t they?
The cranial bones are the PEST OF 6…

Parietal, Ethmoid, Sphenoid, Temporal, Occipital, Frontal- 6 ? (6-the number of bones!)

LOCATION OF THORACIC DUCT: The duck is between two gooses (duck = thoracic duct) 2 gooses = azyGOUS and esophaGOUS

——————————————————————————–

CCartilages of the Larynx – There are 4 cartilages in the larynx whose initial letters are TEAC (also the brandname of a home stereo).
Thyroid, Epiglottis, Arytenoid, Cricoid

——————————————————————————–

Abdomen-Pelvis

INNERVATION OF PENIS:

Parasympathetic puts it up; sympathetic spurts it out

Point , Shoot, Score! (erection, emmision ,ejaculation) Parasympathetic, Sympathetic , Somatomotor

“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

——————————————————————————–br>
Structures perforating the esophagus

&”At T8 you see, perforates the IVC” (inferior Vena Cava)

the “EsoVagus” pierce T10 (esophagus, vagus nerve)

T12 – red, white and blue (aorta,thoracic duct,azygous vein)

——————————————————————————–br>
FFemoral Sheath (lateral to medial) order of things in thigh -NAVEL

Nerve, Artery, Vein, Empty, Space, Lymphatics

——————————————————————————–

Radial n. innervates the BEST!!!!

Brachioradialis
Extensors
Supinator
Tricepsbr>

——————————————————————————–

Carotid Sheath– VAN

Internal Jugular Vein

Common carotid Artery

Vagus Nerve

Dermatomes

C3 is a high turtleneck shirt

T4 is at the nipple

L1 is at the inguinal ligament (or L1 is IL -Inguinal ligament)

Armies travel over bridges, the Navy travels under.

(Bridge is the ligament…reference to suprascapular artery and nerve.)
