    Excellent gift

  • My daughter is in her freshman year in college and intent on becoming a surgeon. When she told me of this "kit" I was rather skeptical, but after talking to a doctor (courtesy of another family member needing stitches), we ordered it as a Christmas gift. It all appears to be of very good quality and she is very happy with it. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that it simply seems a bit overpriced. We will be ordering the phlembotomy (sp?) kit soon-
    This suture kit is definitely worth buying!

  • I bought this for my 15yo birthday. She wants to be a vet. She was very excited to get it. Looking through the kit I was impressed with the tool and kit they came with. it seems to be very sturdy and the instruments are not cheap knockoffs. very excited to watch the video and get started.

      How to Suture Wounds Course & Kit

      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:

      • Introduction: suture tools and materials, how to use the tools, how to use the practice pad
      • Basic Knots: square knot, surgeon's knot, tying knots with the tools
      • Suturing Techniques: wound care, suture complications, subcutaneous sutures, interrupted sutures, buried knots, continuous sutures, interlocking sutures, mattress sutures, subcuticular sutures, how to remove sutures, and more
      • Suture Videos: laparoscopic surgery, eye surgery, microsurgery
      • Tests and Games

      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.

      WARNING:This course and the instruments included are intended exclusively for educational purposes. It is strictly prohibited for use in medical situations. Supervision by a responsible adult is recommended for students under 18 years of age.
