Using Anatomical Models to Elaborate the Human Body to Patients

Oct 10th 2014 at 9:41 PM

If you are a teacher or a doctor, you know how explaining the detail of human body to your student or your patient causes a lot of confusion. A normal picture of a human body part may provide them some information regarding it but a medical model explains it all and well. So, the best solution to avoid any such confusion is to have accurate anatomical models to effectively display every little vein and vertebrae.

When a patient needs to understand the abdominoplasty procedure, an abdominal model comes as a great help for the plastic surgeons. Similarly, a general surgeon uses a model for cancer-ridden lung to ease the mind of a worried and anxious patient. General people, who is not from science background finds it tough to understand little details of their body, so these models are the best way to explain them those little details.

The benefits of anatomical models are not only availed by doctors, but university professors and school teachers also use it as an efficient teaching tool and increase the learning productivity in their class. There are model training aids that help the teachers and doctors to use the models to maximal benefits. These training aids have injection training models, gallstone models, kidney stone models and various forms of patient simulators.

The task of describing different body parts to patients and students becomes a lot easier when you are having a colorful model. Anatomical model is the best way to explore one’s body without actually using a scalpel.

An anatomical model describes every little detail of human body and a medical student needs to grasp all of it as soon as possible. Once a medical student understands every little vein and vertebrae shown in the model, then only he or she can be allowed try their hands on working on a real human body.

Patient simulators and anatomical models are an important element if seen from the view points of the patients and their relatives. It is a tough time for the relatives to imagine what must be going on in the operation theatre to the patient’s body. Knowing the details of the patient’s body through these models reassures and allows them to be level headed.

With the help of such models, the general practitioner can not only elaborate the human body and the damaged area but can also explain the step by step process of the surgery they are going to do.
