One of the best features of a well stocked laboratory, medical classroom, or patient examination room is that there is never a shortage of materials to work with. Having different options to talk to patients, students, or even other staff is a plus in any type of work or learning environment. When it comes to anatomical models, choosing the most suitable model can make a difference in how effectively a patient or student understands what is being taught. Choosing the best 3D human heart model for the job requires thinking about what you want to discuss, explain, or clarify.
An excellent choice of 3D human heart model for patient work, classroom study, or labwork is the basic heart model. This 3D human heart model is full size, and at first glance, appears to be a whole human heart. From the outside, it clearly shows the major blood vessels and nerve tissues that surround the exterior of the heart. Although it is painted to allow each specific component to be highly visible, this model is a very natural and clear representation of the human heart.
Upon closer inspection, what appears to be a simple 3D human heart model actually has a hidden feature. The basic heart model is designed to open in half, allowing the inner features of the heart to also become clearly visible. This window into the interior of the heart includes the valves, chambers, and the major blood vessels. Clearly visible at the top are the superior and inferior vena cava, as well as the pulmonary and cardiac veins. This level of detail is perfect for any type of teaching environment as well as for research facilities. This model is also more than suitable for working directly with patients in consultations and during examinations. It is not overwhelming for patients, and can help clarify everything from blood flow to muscle contractions in the heart that form the pumping action of the organ.
Another very practical and highly informative type of 3D human heart model is a mini heart model. This is actually not one model, but three combined on a single stand. The hearts are about half of life size, allowing this very compact model to be perfect for displaying on a desk, counter or shelf in any type of examination room or educational classroom. The model depicts a healthy, normal heart in the center and two diseased hearts on either side. This display makes comparison quick and easy and also allows for ease in discussing healthy and unhealthy heart features without having to switch from model to model.
There are also 3D human heart model options that show the major diseases of the heart, such as myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure. Within each of these models, the same attention to detail seen in the basic heart model helps patients and students alike to clearly identify the damaged or diseased components. Swelling and thinning is also seen clearly in the models. Since visualizing this is often difficult without something concrete to look at, this 3D human heart model would be a huge benefit to any patient or classroom discussion.
