NCLEX Review: Heart Anatomy Mnemonics

As you prepare for your upcoming NCLEX test, watch this refresher video of mnemonics on the anatomy and physiology of the heart. We will start the NCLEX exam video with a review of the heart’s anatomy before starting our discussion of: the heart sounds heard with a stethoscope, how blood flows through the heart valves, how to listen to the heart by using five systematic locations on the anterior chest wall, the acronym “APETM” for these five locations, 5 lead EKG placement, what heart murmurs are and their causes, and an explanation of each of the three degrees of AV heart blocks.
