Re: Autopsy

Got to go to my first autopsy yesterday. That is some sick $hit fellas. The Doc makes 2 incisions on the chest, then peels the skin just like a banana. The breastbone is completely cut out, and then the organs are scooped out of the body. The body cavity then looks empty cause there's nothing left. Then you should see what they do with the skull cavity!

And no, no pics..........yet.

Re: Autopsy

Is it part of your detective training? How is that going by the way? How'd the rest of the crew react?

Re: Autopsy

Not for me, thank you very much.

The closest that I care to come to seeing internals is a plastiation exhibit (which to me is fascinating).

Re: Autopsy

What's the deal with autopsies? It's pretty much the law it's to be done to all who die except for obvious cause of death right? Who gets them and who dosen't? I saw a recored video of one. It was pretty disturbing. It was intresting but at the same time I was getting a little weak in the knees.

Re: Autopsy

hmmm...I am not too sure if I could deal. I have enough trouble watching the health channel in real surgery.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Are you talking about Body Worlds ?

I went and checked it out in London last summer. *It was pretty interesting.

Re: Autopsy

Saw my first and last one about 9 years ago. No thank you. Geez, why did you have to bring this topic up. Horrible crap

Re: Autopsy

My wife took a gross anatomy class where they disected a human cadavor. She would come home and tell me all about it (usually while I was eating). The last straw was when she started refering to him by name.

COOL!!
I have seen it on video, but never in-person. So what disturbed you more - hearing/seeing him cut the crown of the skull open or the removal/smell of the brain?

Were you really able to get some pics? How old was the specimen?

Re: Autopsy



Gross anatomy is really not too bad... the bodies are preserved.

Fresh cadavers are a bit different. I've gone to a few of my patients while in medical school to see what had happened to them.

Very few people get autopsies actually... It is hard to convince families to get them sometimes.

Yep, that's it. I was at the second exhibit (after Tokyo) in Vienna in 99. The only thing that i found disturbing was the round display of fetuses in all stages of development, with the more developed ones having all sorts of deformities

Re: Autopsy

Ever gut a deer? Obviously not the same as a human body, but splitting open the chest and pulling out the organs isn't real pretty either!

Yeup! *They trick is to not burst the bladder or stomach. *The smell is intense, but it becomes transparent (the scent of warm blood and muscle) after you work on it for awhile. *Talk about having large kidneys!!

Re: Autopsy

I have just seen them on tv and tried really hard to forget about it when I knew it was happening to my little brother a few years back.

It is pretty interesting though.
