"No one should die alone."
I once met a doctor who flies with the air ambulance service. He told me a story about a man he was called out to once. He was trapped under a car and the air ambulance crew had to wait for the wreckage to be moved before they could access the patient to treat him. This doctor knew that they wouldn’t get access to the patient quick enough, and that he would die.
He told me that he lay on his stomach by the patient in his car and held his hand, because even if you can’t save someone, no one should die alone.
What he said that day, however true or untrue, stayed with me and always will…
I won’t let anyone die alone, because a hand to hold is the least you can do.
"This video shows a rabbit heart that has been kept beating outside of the body in a nutrient and oxygen-rich solution. The new cardiac device — a thin, stretchable membrane imprinted with a spider-web-like network of sensors and electrodes — is custom-designed to fit over the heart and contract and expand with it as it beats."
"This photomicrographic collage depicts the karyotype that would represent the chromosomal configuration seen in a person with Down syndrome. In this particular case, the cells in a person with Down syndrome contain an extra chromosome 21, and is therefore, known as “trisomy” 21 (arrow)."
3d printing can be used to print sonograms i.e. life size developing babies. These 3D sonograms are used to help blind expectant parents “see” their babies.
That is so unbelievably awesome

Q:Hi, I'm currently going to start my undergrad as a pre-med. I wanted to start practicing the MCAT book. What would you recommend me to buy since most of them are quite pricey?
This isn’t really my place of expertise. For my UKCAT, I basically just did practice tests which I found for free on the official website and other just by googling around.
Can any one of my followers give any advice? Send me details in an ask to help this lovely anon! :)
