Episode 7 – Lower Limb Anatomy (Part 1) with Dr. Anna Morgan

Hip ligaments, the femoral triangle and the sciatic nerve! In this episode I am joined by emergency registrar Dr. Anna Morgan to break down some of the SUPER HIGH YIELD content from the lower limb. Anna is a skier, climber and serial waterfall expeditionist who donates her time to provide medical care to people at community and cultural events such as festivals, protests and demonstrations. She has recently passed her Primary MCQ and so I convinced her this would be a good way to revise for the Viva. Luckily for me, she agreed!

PLEASE don’t forget to revise using the images from the anatomy photo book and by looking at bones and models. I have included a few of my own revision notes below as well as the episode ‘Study Notes’ in case some of you find it useful.

  1. Thank you for the amazing podcast, wish i found this earlier :). I like the structures in the answers. Thanks again

  2. I’m having some conflicting segments of the spine for innervation of the myotome Ax with Hip Extension;

    Netters Atlas has them as L5-S1. (7TH Edition, 2019)

    Your reference notes have is as L4-L5. Did you get that directly from the Answers provided by the ACEM exam?

    Shoud I treat this as summantics or?

    I am a first-year med student in Sydney, however, have a background in Emergency and ICU nursing. I know I should just go with the answers required by my course or exam, but what is the way you address this professionally when you have conflicting evidence sources? Use the most up to date and notify the examining body when you find conflicting information?

    PS, love listening to your wonder, methodical explanations that are in a defined order. Helps me manage all the conformation I’m trying to cram into my brain. Please keep up the great work.

    1. Hi Andy, great pick up – this is really annoying to learn because every resource is different. All of the answers on the podcast are directly from the answers of past exam papers. Unfortunately, there is even difference in the exam answers year to year! With conflicting info it’s usually because there is some clinical overlap. I would advise to go with the sources used by your examining body (like the recommended texts) because thats what they will use to write the exams, but keep in mind that the body is not so predictable/standardised. Hope this helps! 🙂
