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.

Blood Stain Pattern Analysis

Submitted by anna.palmer on Fri, 04/03/2015 - 13:36

In the Medical Forensic class students discovered how to analyze blood stain. To practice, students carried out a lab and reenacted different types of blood spatter.  Using red paint to simulate blood, students dropped blood from different heights, simulated cast off spatter from weapons, and simulated directionality of blood spatter.
