Patients and students get a hands-on look at how the development of cholesterol buildup, atherosclerosis, and blood clots can lead to a potentially fatal heart attack or stroke. This 3-D model of an enlarged artery features a rounded back and detailed sculpting of cholesterol deposits, plaque buildup, and a blood clot blocking blood flow in an artery. Accompanying, two-sided tent card explains how atherosclerosis develops and the importance of working with a healthcare professional to maintain healthy blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels to help avoid a potentially deadly artery obstruction. Model measures approx. 4 cm x 14 cm x 3 cm.
