Arterial Supply of the Head & Neck in a Nutshell!

Helloooo everyone!!

Here’s some mnemonic I created myself for the branches of external carotid artery and the branches of facial artery. To memorize the name of the branches of external carotid artery, you just need to....
know the place that the artery supplies and you will know the name of the artery!
