Beakman's World: Explaining Wounds
16:43 - 19:32
Beakman explains wound healing by using a brick wall to simulate skin. When the skin is broken (hole is wall), then blood starts to come out (red and white balloons). Beakman then uses a short animation to explain red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Then the platelets start to fill up the hole in the wall and then tape is stretched across the opening to simulate fibrin. This entire demo shows how a scab works.
