A set of 3 one-half life size hearts shows a normal heart compared to a heart with myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure. Each heart is sectioned to show the inner chambers and the disorder.
The first heart shows normal heart anatomy
The second heart represents myocardial infarction (MI) - shows a partially healed, thinned, and discolored infarcted area and
a thrombus (blood clot) in the apex of the heart.
The third heart demonstrates congestive heart failure (CHF) as a result of hypertension. A thickened myocardium and the
enlarged and distorted shape of the heart is shown both internally and externally.
The anterior of each heart is vividly painted to show:
superior vena cava
cardiac arteries and veins
pulmonary arteries and veins
right and left auricle
The areas of myocardial infarction and CHF are indicated on the anterior of the diseased hearts
Includes an illustrated patient education card with structures and areas of disease labeled (card may be affixed to base)
Models may be removed from base.
This model contains three hearts. All models are approximately 50% actual size.
Normal heart : 4" x 2-14" x 1-3/4"
MI heart: 4" x 2-1/4 " x 1-3/4"
CHF heart : 4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/4 "
Card size: 8-1/4” x 6-1/4”
