Anatomy/Physiology Students Learn to Suture Wounds


 

Mrs. Sullivan's honors anatomy and physiology class has been studying the integumentary system!  These students know all about the layers of the cutaneous membrane, they have learned about the cells of the skin, and they can discuss the functions of this important body system.  Last week, students got up close and personal with the dermis of another mammal:  the pig!  Dr. Wortmann came to class to help run a suture clinic.  The students made incisions in the skin of a pig's foot and then they sutured the wound back up. There could very well be some future surgeons at Island School.
