Heart Dissection Module

Heart Dissection Module

Dissect authentically, like cardiologists and medical industry professionals do today by using fresh, non-preserved pig hearts.

  • No chemicals, no odor
  • Authentic experience
  • Promotes understanding versus memorization

Teach heart dissection in a NEW, impactful way: use “real feel” fresh tissue for clear identification of structures with manipulation to demonstrate function, promoting understanding versus rote memorization.

Beyond the traditional structures, additional anatomy can be observed, including: head vessels of the aorta, superior and inferior vena cavas, pulmonary veins, fossa ovalis, external and inverted left and right appendages, coronary sinus, left, right and main coronary arteries, manipulation and variation of all four valves, and more. Identification of these additional structures can be used to introduce connections to pathophysiology and biomedical device design and engineering.
