Memory tools are ever-so-useful. So here’s a quick way to remember the correct order to put on the leads that hook a patient up to the monitors. There are five leads in various colors and when in a hurry, it can get confusing. So, here’s the nitty gritty.

White on the right
Snow over grass
Smoke over fire
Brown on the ground

White Black
Green Red

Congrats! Now you know how to do a 5-lead placement!
