A&P Students Enjoy a New Lab Experience

Lynda Griffin’s A&P II Fast Track class at had a unique lab this semester.

While learning about the respiratory system and the mechanics of breathing Griffin demonstrated with inflatable pig lungs.  Students were able to see basic anatomy such as the lobes of each lung, the pleura membrane, and the trachea.  They applied concepts learned during lectures concerning the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system.  The inflatable pig lungs allowed the students to have a hands on simulation of how human lungs work.
