Wow, very rare! 😱Actual Conjoined twins at the Mutter Museum! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
.
.
Conjoined twins are identical twins joined in the uterus. An extremely rare phenomenon, the occurrence is estimated to range from 1 in 49,000 births to 1 in 189,000 births, with a somewhat higher incidence in Southwest Asia and Africa. Approximately half are stillborn, and an additional 1/3 die within 24 hours. Most live births are female, with a ratio of 3:1.

What an amazing dissection of a cadaver! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Look at the precise cut on the skull and the vessels and nerves still in contact! πŸ‘€ .

Thanks to all who donate their body to science! With those who have enough curiosity to dive deep into how the human body works thank you! Without cadavers we wouldn't have made the medical advances we have made today!

The 3 types of muscle tissue we all have! πŸ’ͺ🏼❀️
.
.
The 3 types of muscle tissue are cardiac, smooth, and skeletal. Cardiac muscle cells are located in the walls of the heart, appear striated, and are under involuntary control. Smooth muscle fibers are located in walls of hollow visceral organs, except the heart, appear spindle-shaped, and are also under involuntary control. Skeletal muscle fibers occur in muscles which are attached to the skeleton. They are striated in appearance and are under voluntary control. Also skeletal muscle is the only muscle usually multi-nucleated!

Cutting the dura mater of the brain to alleviate a subdural hematoma! 😱
.
.
A subdural hematoma is a pool of blood between the brain and its outermost layer aka the dura mater! Subdural hematomas are usually caused by severe head injuries. The bleeding and increased pressure on the brain from a subdural hematoma can be life-threatening. Some subdural hematomas stop and resolve spontaneously; others require surgical drainage.

What a blood bath! 😱😷 Do you know what can happen when you come into contact with another persons blood?! 😡 Read below! .

What are the risks of getting blood on you?!Some infections can be passed on in blood or in body fluids (such as saliva) that can become mixed with blood. These are known as blood-borne viruses (BBVs). Most common BBVs are hepatitis B, hepatitisC, & HIV .
.

The risk of an infection being passed on from someone else's blood is lower if the blood only comes into contact with your eyes, mouth, nose, or skin that's already broken.

RARE CASE: Conjoined twins! 😱Conjoined twins are two babies who are born physically connected to each other.
.
.
Conjoined twins develop when an early embryo only partially separates to form two individuals. Although two fetuses will develop from this embryo, they will remain physically connected, most often at the chest, abdomen or pelvis. Conjoined twins may also share one or more internal organs.
.
.
Many conjoined twins die in the womb (stillborn) or die shortly after birth. Some surviving conjoined twins can be surgically separated. The success of surgery depends on where the twins are joined and how many and which organs are shared, as well as the experience and skill of the surgical team.
