My topic assignment for the week 1 forum is Thoracic cavity. The learning tools I will use to remember the components of this topic by the bones and joints is made up of bones and bony process along with joints and the assortment of muscles and other soft tissue. The Thoracic bones could also remembering 10 ribs on both side and the both side are thoracic cage include the sternum and ribs. One example of thinking of the information on Word art is identifying words that would explain where the Thoracic are located. Just being able to see the words with the wordart helps in remembering Thoracic cavity. One ideal of thinking of the information on the wordart is recognizance which region has specific organs located. Color coordinating the words with Wordart helps in remembering those parts associated with Thoracic cavity. Another standard why it is important to recognize what is in each area because remembering the ribs and the thoracic include the sternum. The acronym that I created to help these components are Trachea, Heart, and Bones, Ribs, Airways. Visualization in color is a good way to remember the words and I learn better by visual. An error in understanding this information can result in a medical liability. If a patient is having a imaging (MRI) of the chest uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the structures within the chest. It is primarily used to assess abnormal masses such as cancer and determine the size, extent and degree of its spread to adjacent structures.

Anterior View of the Body. Anterior is when a body part is situated towards the front, when looking from a lateral view. Front, or anterior, form a lateral view would be things like the face and chest as opposed to the buttocks and back which would be posterior.
Tools for Memory:
I personally use rote memorization and hands on, however, I did create some acronyms/phrases in order to use for the various anterior view body parts. I created the acronyms based off reordering the body parts as they were presented. It is possible to re-arrange what is meant by the single letters as a number of them repeat (e.g. “O” in COB McFoon, has three “O”s so the “O” can be Orbital, Oral, or Ophthalmic based on preference).
Well, on the face of it, recalling what is in the wordle file–is important due to being able to specify what all is included in the anterior view of the body. This is important especially in the case of having to work on a patient in an emergency situation and relaying that information correctly with the team you’re working with.
A problem that could occur if you are not completely aware with the anterior view of the body is misinformation which could in turn, lead to improper diagnosis or improper course of action, in regards to the treatment. For example, relaying that there is an issue in the umbilical region–when in actuality the problem is in the epigastric region or abdomen could lead to attempts to solving an issue that is not even in the umbilical, which in turn delays treatment which could then lead to further damage to a patient.
