March Ladder Meeting Recap – The Heart!

At March’s meeting of the Ladder, the focus was on the heart: learning different ways of listening to the heart, what a healthy heart sounds like, and how to reset a heart that’s not doing what it’s supposed to do.

Medical scholars learned how to take their own and others’ pulses – including on the wrist…

…and on the foot. Did you know you have pulse points on your feet?

Medical scholars learned to use stethoscopes to listen to the sound of their own hearts:

These Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are devices available in many public places which, simply by the application of their sensors as directed, can save a life by preventing heart failure. Medical scholars at the March meeting got practice in using these devices:
