 : automatically diagram your sentences!


If you are are a visual learner like I am, you would find it difficult to grasp the relationship of disease and symptoms in your differentials.  Well, I have found a very useful tool that addresses my deficit effectively.  This is Diagrammr.

I have used this often when watching House, MD.  I start by labeling the pathology as “x”.  If the subject becomes cyanotic and passes out.  I write these sentences:

X causes cyanosis

X causes LOC

Here is what results:






When the final diagnosis is revealed, I define it as X.







Mindmapping an unfolding chalkboard of symptoms, provides a fresh perspective for individual studies in diagnosis, as in watching House, MD.

Give it a try!
