The Heart Stopper

Use the pump from a spray bottle to drive a model of the heart in action! In addition to modeling the function of the heart and blood vessels, aspiring anatomists also simulate arterial blockage. They compare the effects of increased heart rate and increased blockage size. Teacher instructions and student lab sheet are both provided. Consider using this lesson in a biology, health, or anatomy course.
