Heart Dissection

Story and Photos by Natalie Grant

The Advanced Anatomy and Physiology class dissected pig hearts this week. They were able to see all the chambers of the hearts and the different valves, tubes etc. Students distinguished between the 3 layers of heart tissue. They also were able to see the difference in thickness between the right and left ventricles.  Thank you Mr. Blake for coming and doing the dissections with us.
