Heart dissection walk through
This online resource gives a step-by-step guide of a sheep’s heart dissection.
The web page shows labelled pictures illustrating each step and a good description of the key structures.
At the end there is also a video of the procedure.
Most butchers (with some warning) can obtain sheep hearts and dissection is a useful activity for students to illustrate the structure and function of the circulatory system.
