Easy Steps to Recalling the Components of Cyanotic Heart disease (CHD)

As basic as cyanotic heart disease is, it is very much easy to forget some of the components. Okay, at least for me and for some other people whom I’ve asked about it.

Before going down to read this post, try to palpate your brain and know if you can reproduce all the components of cyanotic heart disease flawlessly and in a single breath. I guess you couldn’t but if you could, kudos to you for being a boss. Anyways, I would like to put up a mnemonic that would help us remember the components of cyanotic heart disease with great ease and I hope it would stick with us forever.

In our relationships with people, our discussions, our moving around, our reading/studying or even while eating or sleeping (as funny as it sounds) we are all investing.
