as i know the dependent part of the lung get the greatest perfusion and ventilation , then why in massive haemoptysis we keep the patient lying on the side of the bleeding lung , it will get more perfusion which means more bleeding and also more ventilation which on other side will decrease...

What's the best way to approach this problem? Keep doing questions?
The kaplan gross anatomy isnt suffice and I am hardly able to solve questions esp muscle insertion ones. I plan to do snell review for gross anatomy and clinical correlations from high yield cross anatomy. Plz suggest if this is way to go for gross anatomy.
Mnemonic for the Relation between Deep Inguinal Ring and Inferior Epigastric Vessels:

DR= Deep inguinal Ring
Lateral to Inferior Epigastric vesselS
Hope this helps!
I want to share a mnemonics for superficial branches of femoral artery. These branches supply the lower abdomen.

IC = circumflex iliac
I'm really enjoying the lectures by Dr. White! But the Lecture notes are so dry, vague, and he skips a lot of stuff from the LN's.

Safe to do the Videos only? Or is it good use of my time, to go over the Lecture Notes as comprehensively as...
