B Vitamins Mnemonic: Metabolic deficiencies- Water and Fat Soluable Cofactors Tutorial

A mnemonic for B vitamins - convoluted, but it's better than brute force memorization. Please SUBSCRIBE for new videos: More cool stuff coming as we get more Hippo Helpers! Pathology tutorial playlist at: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIPkjUW-piR2HEbxFVzJ-jIH0TxcBrc_K In addition to a quick introduction to B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6 and B12, there are keywords at the end for fat-soluble vitamin A, D, E, and K. PS: Cobalamin is intentionally mispronounced as "Cobalbumin" - it helps remember the anemia association, like how "Albumin" is in the blood :) Visit: http://helphippo.com for archived videos, organized by topic/school year.

Easy Anemia Classification: Introduction for Medical Pathology Students

A simplified introduction to anemia pathology, including iron deficiency, lead poisoning, vitamins, DNA. We classify anemias according to red blood cell size; environmental or genetic causes. Please SUBSCRIBE for new videos: More cool stuff coming as we get more users. Pathology mnemonic tutorial playlist at: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIPkjUW-piR2HEbxFVzJ-jIH0TxcBrc_K BTW: I say "Gap6" instead of "G6PD" because there is a "gap" in the RBC membrane where a "bite" was taken out. (Mnemonic for abnormal cell morphology for this enzyme deficiency.) G6PD shows "High Loss" during a crisis, (like after eating fava beans...) but most of the time, your (asymptomatic) RBCs are just born with defective glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase.
