14 Nov To take notes with comparative tables
A technique that locates to you, from minute 1, in way study ON, or in class or the first reading of tocho or the book.
Advantage? That you put yourself to learn before and you take advantage of better the time.
In this entrance I spoke long and laying to you of why using comparative tables to study clinical subjects, and I put a practical example removed to you from the ORL, pharyngitis.
At the entrance from today, nevertheless, I come to reveal to you how you can use the comparative tables to take notes, and to begin to assimilate information correctly from the home.
WHEN TO USE THEM
- Whenever there is to each other to compare similar things but with subtle differences. When in a class or a subject drugs exhibit different muscles to you//diseases that are related to each other because they interest to a same anatomical region/chemical group/organ.
- Example of Anatomy: muscles of the forearm.
- Example of Pharmacology: drugs of group AINE
- Example of clinical subject, Pneumology: table summarizing characteristic of restrictive diseases. Or restrictive and obstructivas similarities and general differences between. Cardiology: supraventricular arrhythmias (still it gives to nightmares the Cardio me).
IN WHAT SUBJECTS CAN BE APPLIED
- Human anatomy
- Histology and pathological Anatomy
- All the subjects clinical, medical as as much surgical
WHEN NOT TO USE THEM
- When the class or the subject treats on an organ/unique disease/concept that has sense in themselves, they are not looked like another thing and they contain much information.
- Ex Anatomy, the esfenoides: with its infinity of turns and prominences, space relations and topographic aspects, she is enough alone stops to fill up 1 hour of class. In this case, the group to use is not the table, but another one (future post).
- Ex Farma: the initial subjects of pharmacokinetics, drug metabolism, interactions with receivers.
- Ex clinical Subject, we put Pneumology: Cancer of lung, that in itself has common characteristics to all histological variants. These common characteristics give half an hour for or 1 hour of class, or reading. When they begin to appear different histological types, it begins to have similarities (estadiaje) and differences (survival, ways of dissemination, etc), and there yes that we can put a comparative table.
HOW TO PUT IT IN PRACTICE
- If prev©s that you will have a class thus, you can prepare the table in a afternoon previous pair of leaves.
- If you have not anticipated it, you can have the table prepared of before (computer group), or always draw it at the moment.
- Stuffed the pertinent squares as you can during the class/reading. In this case, it is normal that they remain hollow doubts or without filling up, but you will complete it later, in your session of study.
- Advantage of the doubts: they remain hanging in your mind until you solve them, but the same fact that they remain hanging reinforces its learning.
- If you are directly studying of tocho/notes of commission, or book, you will be able to fill up more slowly and with more precision.
- If you are using notes, it can lack information (following the quality of the notes). If you cannot fill up some square in the first reading, leave it in target and you take the second reading in other more complete notes or a book.
- If you are using a very ample book of consultation (P. ex. Harrison or Farreras), you passes not writing down details. Mant©n the simple table. Simple Keep it.
YOU STICK OR DISADVANTAGES THAT ARISE
It does not give time me to copy it everything in class and I have left very ugly notes:
- My advice is that you forget the appearances in the University, safe in an examination. Writing by hand the letter he can be all the ugly one that you want, whenever you understand it. You can use pencil to erase the errors, or to use Tipex. Final S.A. of the study the table seems to have come mounted in an asteroid fallen on the Earth, secondly passes it to clean (study, bingo) before keeping it for your future reviews.
- It does not pass anything to leave an incomplete table, since you will with complete freedom complete it and correct in your study.
I do not know the subject How I know what to put in each line and each column? : If you are inexperienced in a subject, you will not know what items to put in each column. This is solved after couple of weeks of classes, because you will already have recognized a landlord in the explanations.
- Example: you will already know that yet bone that is explained in Anatomy speaks to you of previous vision, superior, later, etc. Yet muscle, of origin, insertion, function, inervaci³n and irrigation. With each organ, of its topographic structure (the surface) in previous, later vision, superior, inferior; of its internal architecture; of its inervaci³n and its irrigation.
EXAMPLES OF GROUPS TO BEGIN TO USE ALREADY
|REGION TO STUDY (BACK, FOREARM, LEG, HAND¦)|
|Muscle 1||If beams the table in paper, draws it|
|PHARMACOLOGICAL GROUP (ANTICOAGULATING, AINE, CORTICOIDS, SYSTEM RENINA-ANGIOTENSINA¦)|
|DRUG||STRUCTURE||ACTION MECHANISM||DRUGKINETIC||EFFECTS TERAPUT||ADVERSE EFFECTS||INDICATIONS|
|SYNDROME OR SYMPTOM. EX PULMONARY DISEASE OBSTRUCTIVA|
|DISEASE||EPIDEMIOLOGY||TEMPORARY EVOLUTION||SYMPTOMS||COMPLEMENTARY TESTS||TREATMENT|
|Asthma||Men, women?Ages?Factors of risk?Genetics?||Acute?Subagudo?Chronic stable/intermittent /progresivo?||Pathognomonics if there is.Typical of each disease.Also to put those that, if they are present, discard the disease||Typical findings of laboratory, radiology, etc. Including findings characteristic of the disease, and those that discard it|
SOMETIMES YOU HAVE USED TABLES TO TAKE NOTES? PERHAPS IT IS THE MOMENT FOR HOME. LEAVE YOUR EXPERIENCE US IN THE THREAD OF COMMENTARIES OF DOWN.
