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!

Contents include as follows:
Back Muscles
Pectoralis Muscles & Serratus Anterior
Rotator Cuff Muscles
Shoulder Joint
Upper Arm Muscles
Axilla and Axillary Artery

Cubital Fossa

I am a third year medical student in Dublin who has a passion for presenting information in a different way. Students spend too long these days pouring over reams and reams and texts so I aim to draw as many diagrams as I can to depict concepts in order for people to be able to retain the information for longer. I regularly lend notes to students which are acclaimed for also helping them to achieve better grades and to be more productive and efficient with their time. In my free time, I enjoy staying busy and I play a huge amount of sport which means I have tight gaps of space to study and know that I won't necessarily have the capacity to be constantly revising it!
