Has anyone worked on Cadavers before?

Has anyone worked on Cadavers before? For those who don’t know what Cadavers are they’re korps which is a body that colleges and universities use for those who are going into the medical field. I have a friend who is going to be working on a Cadaver tomorrow and, It sounds pretty creepy. So, I was just wondering if any of you were or are going into the medical field, how do you all cope with that? Just curious.

Answer #1

I havent but I know exactly what it is and what it envolves its not really creepy…its a job…and someone has to do it! people who do can usually cope with seeing dead people… like surgeons can cope with all that blood it involves cutting people open and looking at there internal organs and stuff …so definantly not the kind of thing most people would want to do but its great if you have the stomatch and want to learn first hand about the human body

Answer #2

I am an anatomy student and I work with them all the time. We look at all sorts of different prosections like the trunk, limbs, etc. At the moment I am doing a lot of neuro stuff so im mostly working with human brains and spinal cords. I dont actually find it creepy at all even though at first I thought I would because looking at it from a scientific perspective, its fascinating to see first hand all the things you learn about in lectures. Hate the smell of formaldehyde though!

The most important thing to keep in mind when working with human cadaveric material is to treat it with respect as it was very kindly donated to further our education.

Answer #3

Yes. In grad school I worked with the medical examiner. I visited accident scenes and other crime locations. I also assisted with autopsies. You do what you have to do. The first time you cut is hard but after that it gets easier.

Answer #4

I havent but it seems a little weird… I deff wouldnt have the stomach for that kinda stuff…
