Mnemonic for Toxicity of loop diuretics | Mnemonic

 For toxicity of loop diuretics, mnemonic is as follows:

keep the word Hypo 

so now count down all hypos:

  • hyponatremia
  • hypokalemia'
  • hypocalcemia
  • hypomagnesemia
  • hypovolemia

and from word (hypo) letters:


y (if you write it in small case letter on paper, its upper part resembles u) = uric acid (and removing the o from hypo makes hyp = hyperuricemia)

p (rhymes with b) = B1 deficiency (which actually worsens in heart failure)

and O = ototoxicity 

this is makes easier for me to remember the toxicities of loop diuretics easier than cramming them all or making a sentence or word unrelated to loop diuretics, so word hypo is quite relevant for loop diuretics so it can be a good anchor in your mind

I hope it works for you all 


Thank you 💓
