A “SynDaver" in one of the University of Arizona’s Simulation Labs. The SynDaver Synthetic Human(SSH) is the most elaborate and sophisticated surgical simulator ever devised. The full-body SSH is a head-to-toe synthetic physical representation of human anatomy, including skin with fat and fascia planes, every bone, muscle, tendon, and ligament in the body, fully articulating joints, a functioning respiratory system including trachea, lungs, and diaphragm, a complete digestive tract from the esophagus to rectum, the urinary tract , visceral organs, reproductive organs, a circulatory system with heart and coronary arteries, aorta, vena cava, and the primary arterial and venous trunks leading to the extremities.
