Did I just find an anatomy miracle?

Why is it that Monday is the start of the week, but Tuesday I feel the pressure?

I have my dreaded anatomy OSCE tommorrow. I now know about 45 muscles cold (origins, actions insertions, and innervation) the others I still have to work on tonight....I will be barricading myself in a hotel room with a few of people from my class in a few hours and will only be turing the tv on for 1 short hour for LOST.

I wonder if the hotel has a pool.... FOCUS!

I did find a really cool app for my iPhone, Speed Muscles MD

There are 15 different levels, each level has 8 to 13 muscle that you need to identify. You can play in game mode or practice mode. In game mode you need to get 50% of the muscles correct before you can go to the next level.

Practice Mode: You can select which level you want to play (1 -15), and practice on that particular group of muscles. The first two levels you are asked superficial muscles, then it gets more detailed.

You can also zoom in by holding your finger to an area on the screen it will magnify that area.

I found the app during physiology this morning, and have been playing with it ever since. For $2.99 I might have found my anatomy miracle.

Now off to my Easter egg hunt (Girl Guides) and then the hotel to learn something...

Wish me luck!


  1. hmm..nice application...gotta try out... :)

  2. Remember that in our world it seems like everything gets outdated and we have to learn about the newest technologies continously. With the human body, once you learn it . . . you're done, it doesn't change! A wondrous speciman and great piece of machinery that body.
