Hi, I'm Jay McLeod. Today, we're discussing the importance of abdominal quadrants. Basically, your abdomen can be broken down into four different sections. These are known as quadrants and depending if you are experiencing pain, depending on where the pain is, this will help your medical care provider know exactly what's going on. Okay so in order to locate your abdominal quadrants, grab a piece of tape, okay you're going to lay one strip of tape horizontally across your naval, you're going to grab another piece of tape and you're going to lay it vertically down your naval. Okay, this will help you locate the different quadrants. Now in your upper right quadrant, okay, you have your gall bladder. In your left upper quadrant you have your spleen, okay. In your lower right quadrant you have your appendix and in your lower left quadrant you have most of your small intestine.
