This example, asks us to draw in the abdominal pelvic quadrants and label them with the correct abbreviations. And it shows us an anatomical model with his front cut away. So you can see all the organs of the abdomen and pelvis and also the lungs and the thorax. Remember though we are only concerned with things below the lungs in the abdomen and the pelvis. All right. So first off, let's draw in our quadrants. We'll start by drawing a vertical line right at the midline. And then we want a horizontal line at the navel or the belly button. We can't see this uh model's navel, but we'll just go for it anyway. So it's gonna be right out of here. OK. Now, we said you don't really need to know where every organ is at this point, but the major organs, it does not hurt to start getting an idea where they are in the body because questions like this could come up, you're gonna learn it later in the course. You might as well just remember where those big organs are now. So let's look at them. First off, we have the liver and the gallbladder the liver does cross the midline, but it's mostly on this side. Let's first remember what side that is right. This is the models left and right, not mine. So this is the right side over here and the left side over here. So, with that in mind, what quadrant does it look like? Most of the liver and the gallbladder are in? Well, we had three words to name the quadrants first. We said, is it upper or lower? It's upper, right or left, it's right and third word, it's a quadrant. So, upper right quadrant. And how would we abbreviate that the UQ? All right, I'll just draw a little line. So we know exactly what we're talking about next up. We have the stomach and the spleen. Well, here's the stomach again. It also crosses that midline, but most of it's in this quadrant right here. What's the name of that quadrant? Ok. It's upper, it's left and it's a quadrant. So the upper left quadrant or the ulq next. Oh, and I'll draw a line just so we know what we're talking about there. Next, we have the small intestine, large intestine bladder and appendix. Now, you'll note the small intestine, large intestine bladder, those all cross the line. They're not exclusively in this quadrant. The large intestine actually goes up into some of the upper quadrants, but that's fine for. Now, the thing that's unique about this area is gonna be the appendix. And again, you're gonna learn about that later in the course, you don't need to know all about the appendix right now. But for questions like this, the appendix tends to come up because the appendix will sometimes cause people a lot of pain, it'll get infected and it can explode. So it doesn't hurt to know where the appendix is anyways at this point, let's just say what quadrant this is. Well, it is lower, it's right and it's a quadrant. So that is the lower right quadrant or the LRQ. Our last quadrant is gonna be on the other side right over here. Again, the small intestine, large intestine bladder are gonna be in that quadrant and then also there'll be some of the pancreas. So name of that quadrant will be the lower left quadrant. And our abbreviation for that is LLQ. Ok? With that, we have some more practice problems below and I will see you in the next video.
