USMLE Lab Values 1.4

0.03MB. 0 audio & 0 images. Updated 2020-05-19.


Updated: 5/18/2020 I removed any of the naughty anki calls in the comments (i.e. {{Front}}) which I think caused the vast majority of problems. Also moved the empty spans to the beginning of the HTML which cured the "Invalid HTML on card: TypeError: Cannot set property 'innerHTML' of null" that one user was tossing up on their system. Note: Ankiweb does not notify me automatically of comments here. If this deck breaks (again) please send an email to mediocremed.com@gmail.com. This is a deck with all of the lab values from the official USMLE list. There are 2 decks, 1 contains all of the labs with verbatim names so that they are easier to look up if you forget the range. The second deck contains practice cards that generate a random value and you have to select whether the value is "low" "Normal" or "High". Note that there is no backside to the cards in the practice deck because the generator is coded in Javascript and would change value (refreshes the card) when flipped over.

Sample (from 116 notes)

Cards are customizable! When this deck is imported into the desktop program, cards will appear as the deck author has made them. If you'd like to customize what appears on the front and back of a card, you can do so by clicking the Edit button, and then clicking the Cards button.

After the file is downloaded, double-click on it to open it in the desktop program.

At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.

Good deck, but am currently getting this error: "Invalid HTML on card: TypeError: Cannot set property 'innerHTML' of null". Any update?

Also, if I download your update from April 2020, will it overwrite all the progress I have made thus far?

Thank you for the feedback and working with me to get this fixed. This should no longer be an issue for users of this deck.

This works great you just need to fix the javascript again. Hopefully the author can fix the download, but for anyone who wants to use this just delete

the line: '<!-- These spans allow the Javascript to read the input in the fields because it has no idea what {{FRONT}} means -->'

it's near the top and is a comment so Anki shouldn't be spazzing about it but it does anyway it's causing this problem:

If you just delete the comment the deck works perfectly. (Truthfully if you just delete '{{FRONT}}'' it will work but then the comment is meaningless)

Thanks!! I was going to implement something like this myself, but now I don't have to.

Used this deck for Step 1, loved it. Downloaded it again for Step 2 CK after a year and as of 16/Apr/2019, I am using Anki Version 2.1.11 on a MacBook and it is showing the following error for "Practice subdeck"

"Invalid HTML on card: TypeError: Cannot set property 'innerHTML' of null"

Is there any way around this?

Hello and thanks for letting me know. Should be fixed.

useful. i would say some lab values wouldn't even be considered any type of yield at all (IgM levels lol) but I just suspend those. overall great for practice and will definitely save precious seconds on this exam

Great concept and the non-practice cards work very well.

However I cant get the practice cards to work, im using anki 2.1 and i get this error

"Invalid HTML on card: TypeError: Cannot set property 'innerHTML' of null"

Fixed! Looks like the new update made a subtle change in how javascript was handled and my shoddy coding broke. Is now fixed and works on my machine running Mac version 2.1.5 see if that works for you .

Clear, and the practice questions help test the knowledge continuously for months to come through randomly generated values

Excellent method to learn them

Love the low, normal, high - smart way to do it. I recommend this deck even if you have a comprehensive usmle step 1 deck since I don't think there is anything else like this.

Awesome concept and implementation. Great job!
