Cadaver: Mistaken

Second post on the cadaver series

Here's the thing. The cadaver we have is 5 years old at least. So, there will be some organs detached from its original position. The trick is, we need to identify which organ belong to which cadaver since we need to put it back where it came from. The tricky part is, (for me) I'm having a hard time determining which organ is which. You see, the pictures in the textbook looks very different than the real thing. Fortunately, over time, I'm able to recognize the organs. Lucky huh? Wouldn't be silly if a doctor can't identify a human organ.

The fun thing about cadaver session is, we can actually touch all the specimen provided in the room. If you have a strong resistant towards the intoxicating smell of formalin, then by all means, swim with the cadavers all day long. For me, I can't stand the smell. It make my eyes misty. But you can't pamper yourself too much right?

Cadaver: Slacking off

Every med students must did this at least once

Imagining that we're actually operating on patient in an Operation Theater. I did it once and I read most blogs from med student confess on doing the same. It's natural since students, especially pre-clinical students like me, are eager to get that first hand experience to the field. We're like green cadets who is eager to fight in a combat (though often those cadets are most likely to get killed, but let's not get carried away).

I especially enjoy our session with the cadavers.

I will have more posts on the subject of cadavers. Stay tuned!

P/s: sorry for the lack of updates this month..kinda busy with exam, assignment and projects

Collab: Kendrick Ng (Experiment)

I'm Back

This year I started out the updates with 3 consecutive collaboration. I will introduce to you guys a new sidekick of mine, but lets just wait another week for that. mmkay?

This week's collaboration is with Kendrick Ng!! He has agree to be my subject for acute effect of Alcohol. Since I can't drink and it is VERY wrong to slip some booze in Yazid's drinks, I decide to find someone who can drink and Ken, being the Good Guy Greg that he is, volunteered. THX BRO!

So, acute effect of alcohol is mainly involve Central Nervous System (but other system such as Genitourinary, Musculoskeletal, and Cardiovascular is involve as well). We can see the effect of alcohol in different concentration as it is presented with various symptom (usually inhibitory system of CNS) according to different blood alcohol concentration, BAC.

The experiment could not continue since Ken's is passed out and his blood alcohol level if went further, may lead to coma and eventually death by cardiac arrest.

I did this for Problem Based Learning for this block. My sources are Katzung Pharmacology textbook. My colleagues, do read them.

To my non-muslim readers out there, make sure you drink responsibly as alcohol is one of the main cause for fatal road accident. Don't Drink and Drive

oh yeah, do check out Ken's website as well!

p/s: Ken's gonna have a massive hangover.

Something Epic: Battle Commence

When Art Collides, Which Side Are You On?

I'm at the Bottom Right Corner. Chee Ching is covering me while I revive the casualties. Zahir is prepared with his bone saw, ready to amputate anyone in need and use it as a weapon (just in case). I manage to persuade those guys by allowing them to keep the uniform and give the only weapon to Zahir.
