Medical mnemonics / pnemonics / pneumonics / mneumonics

This is a little notice I want to put in this blog. I have seen people searching with all these wrong spellings for mnemonics. Google identifies and corrects most of these but it is better to have the correct spelling at your finger tips. There is no 'U' or 'P' in M-N-E-M-O-N-I-C-S. Just remember MEN on MONdays go to ICH (International Conference Hall / Indian Coffee House); Now rearrange MEN to MNE, add MON and ICS. So the correct spelling is MNE+MON+ICS. I just made up this silly rule to remember the spelling. You can thus split a large word to be remembered and split it as desired to rememeber them.
