Learn about how an organ bath works and how it can be used to determine the effect of drugs on an isolated piece of aorta. Practise using the equipment to wash a piece of tissue and determine the effect of 4 drugs, including acetylcholine and histamine on the ileum. Analyse a force-time trace to identify the effect of each drug on the tissue.
Having more time to spend on the actual practicals showed a great improvement in the marks achieved by students as well. The positive interactions with the students demonstrated that they had engaged well with the online resources.
