Hey fellow A&P students, we saw the body!!
Wow, it was not as bad as I had thought it would be. I found it pretty interesting really. The lungs were smaller than I thought, ie. they were not filled with air. Still, I thought the lungs would be larger. He was skinned except for his hands, feet and head. I tried not to look at the head too much.
The smell was bad, but not like I thought. It did pierce your nose, and it was strong, but nothing you can't handle.
All in all, a good experience.
Anyone else get to see there's yet?
You get a body? Are you associated with a medical school?
Yep, we get a cadavear. No, we are not a med school. We don't get to do anything to it, we just get to observe it whenever we are going over things like muscles, organs, etc.. We had one student who badgered the teacher enough I think he finally just gave in. Normally, we don't see it until later on in the semester.
Jennerizer, ASN, RN
Wow......all we got to see was a cat. I wonder where they find people that are willing to donate their bodies for research.
WE GOT A BODY TOO, IT'S GREAT!!! AINT NOTHIN LIKE THE REAL THING BABE!
We got a cat...no body...bummer
If memory serves we were told that they were "too expensive" - fine! Just say "nursing students aren't worth it" and save us the BS
All we get are models and power point slides.
We had a body, too. We called him Lyle. It was a really neat experience, but it creeped me out to look at his face -- gave me the willies everytime I stole a glance!!
We dissected a cat. I always thought that having a cadaver would be a benefit but I never thought that they would be "skinned". So I think I'll have to change my opinion. LOL
JennyRN2 be....what part of Illinois are you in??
Just curious..Im in Il also.
Actually, the part about the skinning is what gave me the whillies!
I mean, picturing my instructor doing that procedure just about makes me dry heave. Can you imagine having that job??
ps. I am in the Bellville area
