Found this little guy at my parent’s house in their halloween display. A ceramic sculpture I made in 2014
Oddly satisfying video of a procedure called sclerotherapy!
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure whereby a chemical, the sclerosant, is injected into a vein to entirely obliterate it. It is commonly mixed with air to make a foam like substance that tend to stay in the vessel more firmly. The sclerosant damages the innermost lining of the vessel, resulting in a clot that blocks the blood circulation in the vein.
To prevent back-flow, most veins have valves that only allow blood only to flow in the direction of the heart. When these valves become incompetent, veins become enlarged and bulging (varicose). Smaller veins that feed these varicose veins can also become enlarged and appear as red or blue spider veins in the skin.
Varicose veins can lead to a chronic swelling condition of the leg called venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency predisposes a person to blood clots and skin ulceration. The destruction of these types of veins can be desirable both medically and cosmetically.

Halloween may have passed but these cross-sections sure are a sight!
Have you taken advantage of our cross-sectional models in Human Anatomy Atlas 2019 yet?
Check it out now, link in bio.
❓Guess The Gross ❓
Can anyone guess what organ is being sectioned in this video? Also, what disease state is appreciated?
No, it’s not a flank steak or a brisket... LOL

We made blood today as a part of our Human Body Unit. It was such an easy and hands on way to learn about blood. We also watched the Magic School Bus when they travel into Ralfie’s body.
👉The blood carries oxygen, nutrients, and wastes that need to move around the body. There are three kinds of blood vessels: arteries, veins, and capillaries. The arteries carry blood away from the heart and transport it to the rest of the body. -
👉And if you took all the blood vessels out of an average child and laid them out in one line, the line would stretch over 60,000 miles. An adult's would be closer to 100,000 miles long. There are approximately 300 million capillaries in the human body. -
👉Once again, there are three kinds of blood vessels: arteries, veins, and capillaries.

This past week she has been doing some light research on the blood cells we have.
Lena: We need to be careful because if my capillaries are cut open then the red blood cells all come out and if the platelets don’t work fast I can get germs in the cut which will get infected then I’ll go to the hospital. I DON’T want to go to the hospital.

Fine trittico 👁👁
Qual è la fonte di tutti questi problemi? Sto affermando che la fonte è principalmente nel pensiero. Molti potrebbero pensare che questa è cosa da pazzi, dato che il pensiero è l'unica cosa che abbiamo per risolvere i nostri problemi. Fa parte della nostra tradizione. Eppure sembra che ciò che usiamo per risolvere i nostri problemi sia la fonte dei nostri problemi. È come andare dal dottore e dopo restarne ammalati.
What is the source of all this trouble? I'm saying that the source is basically in thought. Many people would think that such a statement is crazy, because thought is the one thing we have with which to solve our problems. That's part of our tradition. Yet it looks as if the thing we use to solve our problems with is the source of our problems. It's like going to the doctor and having him make you ill. (da Thought as a System)

Take care out there! the smoke has been really bad, it looks worse today. We undervalue the function of our lungs and we forget how it plays a big role in our lives. Like the rest of our body, the lungs need daily care and attention. It’s only when we are experiencing breathing problems that we bring our attention to our lungs. There are many breathing practices and ways to bring our awareness to our breath. It can be as simple as taking a moment in our day and count our breath. if the lungs were opened flat they would be so big that they would cover roughly the same area as one side of a tennis court.
