This image is representative of an experience many medical students know: dissection. As part of training to heal the living, medical practioners train on the dead. . Here we see the method for opening the left ventricle with the heart outside of the body. This particular text is focused more on autopsy and postmortem examinations, likely for cause of death, but the principle and practice is much the same. . The question remains, though, if dissection on cadavers is still a necessary part of medical training. Some argue that simulations can achieve the same results, and perhaps that there are other, less gruesome ways to learn anatomy. . To learn more about the history of, and conversation around, dissection and anatomy, take a look at some of our articles. We’d love to hear what you think in the comments. .

Today's visitor who wrote in our Book of Medical Fears shared their son's deepest fear which is sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis is a sleep disorder in which the body is temporarily immobilised at the moment of waking or the moment of falling asleep which in some cases can be accompanied by very vivid visual or auditory hallucinations. For those who have experience it, it truly is terrifying.  In the Victorian era these "night-mares" were treated by either bloodletting or shaving the head...so glad these are no longer options, right? . You can share your fears with us in the comments, or using #medicalfears or by visiting the Old Operating Theatre in person and adding your responses to our book. We would love to hear your thoughts! .  #sleepparalysis #nightmare #nightmare  #bookofmedicalfears #oldoperatingtheatre #theoldoperatingtheatre #oldoperatingtheatremuseum #museum #herbgarret #medicine #fear #histmed #histsci #fears #fearoftheunknown #historyofmedicine #thisislondon #london_only #unlimitedlondon #londoncalling #secretlondon
#repost @medicalandcollectables  A tiny antique bottle of De Treys Nervicid labelled a poison, still with full original contents, this substance a believe is related to dental use cocaine similar to novacaine and dates to around 1920s I also think it had a secondary glass lid to go over the Cork to add and extra seal because of the substances dangerous nature #histmed #historyofmedicine #medicalhistory #antiquemedical #medicalantique #cabinetofcuriosities #oldmedicine #medicalcollectable #medicalandcollectables #antiquemedicine #vintagemedicine #dentalhistory #historyofdentistry #antiquedental #dentalantique #olddentistry #olddental #dental #dentistry #oldbottle #antiquebottle #nervicid #detreys #myantiquepharmacy #poisonbottle #historicmedicines #mypharmacycollection

#repost @drlindseyfitzharris Wax anatomical model of a dissected head and neck, created by the British sculptor Joseph Towne for the Great Exhibition of 1851, held in London. At the Great Exhibition, there were approximately 100,000 objects on display from over 15,000 contributors around the world. Amongst these were "tangible ink" which produced raised ink for the blind, a mechanical leech for drawing blood, and the world's first major installation of public flushing toilets designed by the Victorian sanitary engineer George Jennings. Some 827,280 people paid one penny to use these toilets, giving rise to the phrase: "spending a penny." This wax model is now housed at the Gordon Museum, King's College London.

You’ve probably seen this pattern of lines at the hospital, on a TV show, or even as a tattoo. It is called an electrocardiogram or ECG and allows physicians to observe our heart’s electrical activity! . So how is a heart beat converted into lines? . Our hearts beat continuously to pump blood to the entire body. In order for it to beat, a wave of electrical impulse is generated by the heart which then travels through the different chambers. An ECG is a non-invasive, painless test that uses a set of electrodes placed on the chest to detect the heart’s activity. Invented in 1901 by Willem Einthoven, a Dutch physician, the first ECG device weighed 600 lbs! Since then, the ECG has been improved with new technology to what it is today. . Why is this test useful? . It is helpful for physicians to know if your heart has an abnormal rhythm, if it’s beating too fast or too slow, or if you’re having/have had a heart attack. Different waveforms are created based on each heart condition which physicians interpret to diagnose or treat a patient. . . . #imsschicago #chicago #museum #ecg #heart #heartbeat #histmed #medical #history

Writer Linda Clarke has focused on the stories in the health care communities for much of her career. These stories are heavy with images and emotion, each one a snapshot into the love and grief of living and dying. . She shared a few of these stories with us in her piece “How we love.” . “The visitor sees that daisies are a theme throughout the kitchen: the clock, salt and pepper shakers on the back of the stove, a border of trim along the bottom of the curtains in the window. She remembers the dog is named Daisy.  He sees her looking. ‘The wife loved daisies,’ he explains, suddenly shy. ‘I keep them up for the boy.’” . Read the rest at the link in our bio. .

For today’s #hahnemannhomeopathy post, we feature the fifth of five homeopathy kits we will research and highlight over the summer. Made by F.E. Boericke, this leather-covered wooden box contains 96 vials. It also contains a large vial (on the right side of the case) that notes it is “a vial from Hahnemann’s pocket case, presented by Dr. Hardenstein, a pupil of Hahnemann, to Dr. Geo. Latimer of Washington, D.C., and by him to Dr. A.W. Baily, 12/25/08.” This information cannot be confirmed, but it is clear that early homeopaths sought after and treasured items that belonged to Samuel Hahnemann. Stay tuned for our Friday post to learn more about this homeopathy kit.⠀ ⠀ Scroll through the photos to check out the different features of this kit.⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ #homeopathy #sciencehistory #hahnemann #hahnemannhospital #phillyhistory #archivesphl #histmed #archivesofinstagram
Good morning everyone! Today we'll be talking about grim eye stuff - specifically eye surgery - a topic that so many people are squeamish about! And who can blame them, really, when you look at the sorts of tools Victorian eye surgeons were working with. Yep, those scissors, and yep, that blade at the bottom there were both used for poking, prodding and slicing the eyeball. The tool on the right-hand side here is a Morton Ophthalmoscope, a device used to see the interior of the eye. If you really want to make your skin crawl, google 'Victorian eye surgery' to see these tools in action. We promise it'll be fun. Have a lovely week! . #morbidmonday #eyeopener #victorian #eyesurgery #oldopcollection #happymonday #mondaymood #collectionitem #collections #behindthescenes #museumcollection #museumobject #oldoperatingtheatre #theoldoperatingtheatre #oldoperatingtheatremuseum #museum #herbgarret #histmed #histsci #historyofmedicine #medicine #surgery #gruesome #nothingisordinary #thisislondon #london_only #unlimitedlondon #londoncalling #secretlondon
Early porcelain teeth were often rejected because they looked unnaturally white. Manufacturers soon adapted, producing different shades and gradations, including full sets carefully stained to match the needs of the client. . This grey tooth shade guide, made by the Dental Manufacturing Co. around 1890-1910, most likely for smokers, was used for porcelain teeth and shows 24 slightly different colours. . Today, false teeth are made from acrylic, but over the years a range of materials have been used, including ivory, porcelain and mother of pearl – some patients even had dentures made from donated human teeth.

Looking at this painting, the bright colors might be the first thing to catch your attention. Greens, purples, blues, and reds adorn the wall decor, clothing, and furniture. There is also red blood being let from the main figure’s arm. . This painting depicts the court physician of Harun al-Rashid practicing venesection on a man reclining on a couch in a palatial room. Venesection, a surgical incision into a vein in an effort to drain blood, is a practice indigenous to the pre-Islamic Middle East and ancient Greece. In the Islamic world these practices were to a large extent conducted by barbers and others outside the sphere professional physicians. . Throughout the history of this region, bleeding was a common remedy and most people above the age of 14 were bled once a year. Bloodletting was performed for many reasons, the most common of which was often because the patient simply was not feeling well and felt they had too much blood in their veins. Before the barber, or whoever was performing the bleeding, would begin, they would take into account two things. The location of the vein and the phase of the moon. Each organ of the body was believed to be connected with one of the constellations of the zodiac. To let blood from an organ when the associated constellation was in the ascendant was considered dangerous. Only after an astrologer had determined the auspicious day and hour could bleeding take place. . Bleeding was a risky affair. The instruments used were often unhygienic and the operation often took place in the street so the wounds would frequently become infected. Sometimes bloodletting was the immediate cause of death, either through infection or because the person performing it had mistakenly opened an artery instead of a vein. . . . #imsschicago #chicago #museum #painting #art #bloodletting #blood #middleeast #islamic #history #histmed

On Monday’s #hahnemannhomeopathy post, we highlighted a sturdy black leather bag that contained a mix of homeopathic and allopathic medicines. According to our accession files, it belonged to Dr. Warren C. Mercer (Hahnemann 1899) and donated to the Legacy Center by his son-in-law in the 1970s. After graduating, Dr. Mercer became a demonstrator of obstetrics at Hahnemann Medical College and also assistant obstetrician at the Hahnemann Hospital. He is pictured in the first image. ⠀ ⠀ This kit contains homeopathic and allopathic medicine. On the allopathic side, it contains an injection kit, pills, medical samples, and a case of hypodermic tablets in a leather case labeled Dr. O.B. Griggs. After reviewing the accession information, there is no mention of a Dr. O.B. Griggs. Reviewing Hahnemann alumni information, there is a Dr. O.P. Griggs who graduated in 1933, but it is unclear if he practiced medicine following his graduation. Perhaps a Dr. O.B. Griggs gifted Mercer this case or he worked with Mercer? Another #archivesmystery! ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ • ⠀ #homeopathy #sciencehistory #hahnemann #hahnemannhospital #phillyhistory #archivesphl #histmed #archivesofinstagram
