Cartoon notes and diagrams of all the muscles of the upper limb (and a fun one of the hand muscles!), back and chest including rotator cuff muscles. All muscles are described with a diagram, origin, insertion, action and innervation. There are also diagrams of the key joints and bones involved. Included is a simple way of drawing the brachial plexus with extra information included for looking for higher grades and A's. Some fun notes also demonstrate important areas such as the cubital fossa and axilla. I have also included a large table on all of the muscles which contribute to certain movements.
These notes are really useful for condensing things into basic ideas. It's impossible to learn details in medicine until you are able to understand the stories and concepts behind everything which these notes help you to do. They help you to think outside the box in a more visual manner and you will have a higher retention rate for the exam. Pictures and concepts are much faster to learn as well if you are under time pressure!
