The objectives of this project were to establish a practical model for the review of clinical anatomy relevant to the assessment and care of the ill and injured patient, and to design practice models for invasive procedures using human cadaver, porcine cadaver, and plastic model material. A practical course based on the human gross anatomy of the face, neck, thorax, airway, arm, and leg was designed. Regional anesthesia techniques, arthrocentesis, saphenous vein cutdown, central venous and arterial cannulation, surgical airway, thoracostomy tube placement and thoracotomy were integrated into the appropriate practice stations.
