Have you ever wondered…
…after retracting abdomens and clamping vessels, where oh where do all the old surgical instruments end up. My first thoughts:
- Hospital Instrument Museums – finite capacity here
- Landfill (in a sharps container of course)
- Melted down to produce LOTR rings
Not so, as a creative colleague has shown with these images.
Apparently his wife banned him from whipping up a speculum hat stand.
I can imagine old MRI’s stacked into a fun slide for the little ones.
