In this video we go over a half-jovigram/half-mnemonic method to remember some of the important structures related to the thoracic place, also known as the transthoracic plane, or as we call it (completely unofficially) the transmediastinal plane.
A jovigram is a diagram that simplifies complex structures or concepts down to simplistic sketches, most commonly comprised of simple geometric shapes. It is a go-to mnemonic for studying and rapid recall. Jovigrams are designed to be simple enough to picture in your head after drawing a few times so that you rapidly recall its details.
