Have you or your child dreamed of becoming a surgeon and learning how to suture wounds? This fascinating hands-on course and kit by The Apprentice Doctor on How to Suture Wounds teaches students to tie the various suturing knots and when to apply them in a variety of suturing techniques. Whether you are a teenager or adult interested in a medical career, you will enjoy and benefit greatly from this course.
This is not just a quick "how-to" experiment kit for kids. Rather it's a complete course on the techniques of stitching up wounds. The heart of the course is an eLearning CD-ROM that takes you step-by-step through the content. You learn by reading, watching videos, and actually practicing the knots and suture techniques using a triple-layer "imitation skin" practice pad. Watch the videos and practice the sutures again and again, until you're confident you've mastered them.
Advanced technique tip: While the imitation skin practice pad functions well as you learn various suturing knots, once you're ready to simulate a more realistic experience, buy a cut of raw meat from the butcher shop and practice on it.
This complete How to Suture Wounds Course and Kit offers a thorough understanding of the different suturing techniques and when they are used. The following major sections comprise this suturing kit:
Safety Note: Since handling raw meat increases risk of foodborne illness, be sure to observe proper food handling and hand washing practices. See the CDC website for more information.
