The Surgical Tech. class bought pigs feet so they can learn how to cut the skin very precisely how to use a bovia. They decided to cut open pigs feet to learn how to cut around the joints (also where would they get human feet?). They also injected water and saline using needles. When they used the bovia to cut the skin it kind of smelled like something burning similar to setting hair on fire. When they used the bovia, they had to cut one piece of skin at a time and had to be very careful. They also how to identify everything in the incision they had made in the pig’s foot. They had to learn about what they should do if they are cutting and they end up running into some kind of joint.
