I am not a doctor nor a medical student but I found this site informative and fascinating nonetheless. I just wish they could update more often.

Oh damn, I should probably have added that the first video on that site is called "Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery" and therefore it may be NSFW.

Wow!

I personally love that the open heart surgery video had a soundtrack and narrator like some sort of fast food employee training video.

And it's damned interesting.
Awesome post.

Yeah, great post. I gotta do a bit of the old Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery tomorrow and it's been a while. Timely post.

This is awesome. Even though some of it makes me want to toss cookies.

Okay -out of ten, then...how gross?

(i.e fairly serious enquiry, being both curious and pretty squeamish).

I guess it depends on which you watch and what you can handle.

Think: abdomen wide open exposing internal organs with white-glove covered hands cutting and sucking stuff out. That kind of stuff. Or exposed hearts, etc.

I should note there a lot of videos that aren't that graphic that might be ekgs or video lectures on topics. Those shouldn't make you squeamish at all. It's just the surgery videos that ick me out (and I say that as someone who frequently has to look at autopsy pictures).

No way I'm going to click this so I'm not sure how similar it is, but: When I was a kid there was a show on Sunday afternoon that showed open heart surgery and suchlike. New England Journal of Medicine?

Thank you dios.
(Exactly what I needed to know.)

Thanks alvy. The first one was a good one. I had no idea tonsils were so large, or meaty!

Nice post. I especially like the brain teasers for MCAT prep.
