DESCRIPTION

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 online eLearning course 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.

NOTE: This product is exclusively intended for educational purposes. The use of this kit or components on humans or animals is strictly prohibited. 

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
