I love that for the KED there are soo many different orders of putting it on. For instance my class and what I teach is:
Boy My Tired Legs Have Cramps.
Bottom, Middle, Top, Legs, Head, Chin.
I don't mean to quote a really old post but another great one is "My baby looks hot tonight". That one is always easy to remember!

I know this isn't exactly a mnemonic, but what does LALS mean? I've never heard this term before.

The only time I have heard that is the term Limited Advanced Life Support. All it means is an AEMT.
