Graphic Illustration Of Blocked Artery
Encourage students to lead healthy lifestyles and instruct them on the consequences of fatty tissue build up. This segmented model shows four stages of atherosclerosis in a human artery. The cross section segments reveal the outer and inner appearance of an artery as it progresses from normal to fatty streak to fibrous plaque and blockage. Each stage causes a further decrease in blood flow, which can lead to blood clots or thrombus. The model segments rotate on a hinge pin from the center mount for convenient viewing.
