SEMI-SYN­THETIC HU­MAN CADAVER IS THE STAR OF AN IN­TER­AC­TIVE AU­TOPSY SHOW COM­ING THIS WAY

Glossop Advertiser - - City Life Local -

AN in­ter­ac­tive au­topsy show which dis­sects a semi-syn­thetic hu­man cadaver is com­ing to Manch­ester. Anatomy Lab Live is a tour­ing hands-on post-mortem suite, which serves a sump­tu­ous two-course din­ner to guests be­fore the gory pro­ce­dure be­gins.

Af­ter its suc­cess­ful UK tour last year, the show re­turns big­ger and bet­ter in 2018 - with a string of dates in­clud­ing a show in the Vil­lage Ho­tel Ash­ton on Jan­uary 27.

Those at­tend­ing will be given mor­tu­ary wear in­clud­ing pro­tec­tive sur­gi­cal hats, masks and aprons as well as scalpels, scis­sors, for­ceps and bone saws.

A team of hu­man anatomists, medics and phys­i­ol­o­gists will ac­com­pany host and sci­ence teacher Sa­muel Piri as they carry out a real post-mortem.

The cadaver - known as VIVIT - is the next best thing to a real hu­man cadaver and houses real in­ter­nal or­gans from pigs, cho­sen for their anatom­i­cal sim­i­lar­ity to hu­mans.

Vis­i­tors will also be given a set of case notes to look over be­fore then start­ing pro­ce­dures for them­selves, which could in­clude a real head and brain sam­ple, the pul­monary sys­tem, the gas­troin­testi­nal tract, or the heart and greater blood ves­sels. There will also be Q&A time as the floor opens for ques­tions from the au­di­ence.

Ac­cord­ing to or­gan­is­ers, this event is a high-level in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for level 4 and above, and the con­tent is aimed at those study­ing to­wards grad­u­ate pro­fes­sions.

How­ever, the wider public is wel­come to at­tend and the event will al­lo­cate some anatomy pods es­pe­cially for those with a gen­eral in­ter­est. Tick­ets for the din­ner and dis­sec­tion are £79 gen­eral ad­mis­sion, with dis­counts avail­able for stu­dents. Book on­line via eventbrite.co.uk. ●●
