Well - it was none of that. In fact, it was quite interesting. I got to do and see things that I never would have seen had it not been for cadaver lab.
I got to see the structures, up close and personal, of the airway. I also got to feel them. I now have a better idea of what I'm doing as an EMT.
They let me intubate, insert a chest tube, do a surgical airway, insert an IO IV (IV into the bone), do a needle chest decompression and a whole lot more.
I am looking forward to more cadaver labs in the future. I'm also going to see if I can set up observing an autopsy. I'm sure I'd learn a LOT there!!
