Are you frustrated and stressed about how
to memorize medical terms? Well, I’m going to give you a simple, easy, step-by-step way
to memorize any medical term. Check this out. Now this is how you memorize medical terms.
Instead of going crazy and just doing it over and over with rote memorization and flashcards
and making yourself insane, try this. Whenever you have a word that you want to memorize,
take the word that you want to memorize and turn it into a picture. Maybe break it down
by syllables, and then take the definition and turn that into a picture. And then, put
those two pictures together. Let me show you what I mean. Let’s take the word “acapnia.” It means having
a lower level than normal of carbon dioxide in the blood. So we need to take the word
“acapnia” and a lower level of carbon dioxide in the blood, turn them both into a picture
and see it in one big picture. Acapnia — we’ll turn that into a picture by seeing a baseball
cap on your knee — acapnia. Now, a lower level of carbon dioxide in the blood, we need
to turn that into a picture. Well people often think of carbon dioxide being in the atmosphere
by coal or gasoline burning. So I want you to see coal or gasoline, and it’s burning.
And on top of that we put the baseball cap with the knee. See the knee getting hot from
the flames. So now, when you think of acapnia, I want you to also think of the coal or the
gas burning around that. And that is the definition and the word tied together. An important thing:
it’s a low level of carbon dioxide. So I want you to imagine that picture low, like low
down on the ground to remind you “low level of carbon dioxide.” The next term is the “macula” of the retina.
This is the light-sensitive tissue on the back of the eye. So, as we read, light is
focused on our macula. And millions of cells change that light into nerve signals that
tell our brain what we’re seeing. So we have the word “macula.” We need to turn that into
a picture. For me, I think of a Big Mac, a hamburger, a Big Mac, and it’s eaten by Dracula,
wa-ha-ha-ha-ha. So you have a Big Mac eaten by Dracula; it’s a macula. And the key word
here is, is light goes into the macula, and it goes out as nerve signals. So see light
going into the macula and then going out as nerve signals. So we took the word “macula,”
and we turned it into a picture, light going in and coming out as nerve signals. All right. One more medical term: “octapressin.”
Octapressin is an ingredient that may be added to a local anesthetic to constrict the blood
vessels. So we take the word “octapressin,” and we turn it into a picture. We imagine
an octopus and it’s pressing. And what does it do? It constricts blood vessels. So imagine
the octopus is pressing on blood vessels to constrict them. So we took three words here.
We turned the word into a picture and the definition into a picture. So the first word,
“acapnia,” do you remember what that meant? Low levels of carbon dioxide in the blood.
Macula — what did that do? Light going into the eye and out as nerve signals, sending
it to the brain. And finally we had octapressin. What was octapressin? It was an ingredient
to put in local anesthetic to constrict the blood vessels. So how’d you do? It’s pretty simple, right?
Here’s the basic concept. Turn the words you want to remember into a picture, the definition,
and tie them together in a story. And that is how you remember any medical term. Now
