Human Anatomy

The second semester has finally come. Most of our clinical areas this sem will be in the operating rooms (last sem most of our assignments were in the delivery rooms because our focus then was on maternal and child nursing). This week we will be at our own hospital's special area. There's a scheduled hysterectomy tomorrow morning. I will be the circulation nurse (I think). I'm really quite anxious because it will be my first time. I need to review the different instruments, the proper gowning and gloving techniques, etc., because we had our OR lecture last sem. There's so much I need to relearn...

Anyway, here's a great podcast I discovered: General Human Anatomy Podcast. It's a series of lectures of the different systems of the human body and their functions. It's taught by Marian Diamond, a professor at the University of California in Berkeley. You can listen to it through streaming audio or you can download it as an MP3, so if you have an iPod (if you do, I envy you) you can just upload it and listen to the lectures while you commute to school, go to the gym, wash your clothes, do the dishes, or whatever you do. Anywhere, anytime, you can listen to it. Isn't that a cool way of reviewing anatomy and physiology? You can also watch the videos.

There are other interesting courses available at the main site besides anatomy, although most of them look technical.

An iPod + academic audio lectures = a great learning experience!

Hi Nice Blog .In this, the body is studied by regions rather than by organs. This is of importance to the surgeon who exposes different planes after the skin incision and who, of course, must be perfectly familiar with structures as he explores the limbs and cardiovascular system information cavities.
