Students from the Health Career Foundations classes witnessed a live open heart surgery via zoom last week hosted by the Museum of Science and Industry and Christ Medical Center Hospital in Chicago, IL.
They watched as the cardiothoracic (heart and chest) surgeon performed a Coronary Arterial Bypass Graft (CABG) procedure on a patient with heart disease. This wrapped up their Cardiorespiratory unit and helped them apply what they have learned in the classroom and lab.
