Ideas For Using A Human Anatomy Chart
Most physician's offices, waiting rooms and patient examination rooms are liberally plastered with many different versions of the standard human anatomy chart. Other than for wall covering and something for the patients to look at before the doctor arrives, the uses for these human anatomy charts may seem a bit lost in the daily activity of the office or clinic. In reality with the right human anatomy chart a doctor or nurse can much more easily explain a variety of health issues to a patient in easy to understand, highly visual terms.
One important consideration is the most effective method to present the human anatomy chart to the patient. The most common options are wall charts or posters that have either the entire body or specific areas of the body. Typically the human anatomy chart that presents the complete body will include the skeleton and often half of the diagram will show the major and minor muscle groups.
These human anatomy charts that include the whole body can also be very specific. Some will offer just the skeletal system, others the nervous system and yet others the muscle systems. Often these charts are three dimensional, allowing the physician to show the patient in as much detail as possible where any possible health issues are occurring in the body. In addition this type of human anatomy chart may be labeled with the medical terms and names of the body parts or systems. This can make it much easier for the patient to follow along with the medical experts discussion and points of information.
The biggest drawback to this type of human anatomy chart is that they are basically designed to be displayed on a wall. Constantly taking the charts on and off of the wall will certainly be damaging to the charts over time, no matter how well constructed they are. One way that medical human anatomy charts can prevent this type of wear and tear is to come pre-made with metal eyelets that allow easy hanging as well as removal from the wall mounting. Laminating of the human anatomy chart also makes it more practical to handle and less likely to be damaged or stained.
One way to avoid issues with having to take the human anatomy chart, either of the whole body or the specific body region, on and off the wall is to simply use a flip chart style booklet. These smaller versions of the poster sized wall charts can be used to provide the patient something to look along with while the physician uses the wall sized posted. The other option is to work with the patient looking at the smaller book sized laminated human anatomy charts. They are usually designed for easy viewing with a spiral binding and two sided charts. The obvious benefit to having this handy book size reference is that it can be used in any consultation or examination room, plus you have easy access to all the charts in the booklet, not just the few posted on the walls.
