Operating Theatre Live

Report by Alexander H. 
 
Last week, Year 12 biologists attended Operating Theatre Live hosted by Jesmond Park Academy.

The event involved sessions on anatomy and operating procedures, which were led by a medical professional.

The boys worked well as a team to perform dissections. As well as accessing a patient file to deduce what the problem was, the boys removed a pig’s brain, intubated a set of lungs and dissected a heart. Students also had the opportunity to see an entire intestine.
 
Overall, the boys enjoyed the day. It was a different and interesting experience and they all represented NSB very well.
