Anatomy students learn from Riverside Animal Clinic
Last week, the Anatomy class had Dr. Beyer in from the Riverside Animal Clinic to present on how to give injections both subcutaneous and intramuscular.
“The students learned the difference in injections in humans and animals, safety with needles, why certain injection sites are used, and about the different length and diameter needles. Students then practiced giving injections to bananas, oranges, and chicken breasts using different gage needles, different color water solutions for Sub-q and IM injections, and they learned how difficult it is to draw corn syrup into a needle and the importance of selecting the correct gauge needle,” explained teacher, Brittany Cook. Students also asked career and college related questions.
