Wer keinen robusten Magen hat, sollte hier lieber nicht weiterlesen – denn für Nicole Angemis Instagram-Account braucht man starke Nerven. Die Pathologie-Assistentin aus den USA postet darauf detaillierte Nahaufnahmen aus ihrer Arbeit und erklärt die Diagnose oder Todesursache dazu. Damit will sie nicht etwa schockieren, sondern Bewusstsein schaffen.

Ihr Account, der unter anderem detaillierte Aufnahmen von Gallensteinen, Fehlgeburten, Tumoren und offenen Knochenbrüchen zeigt, hat bereits über 800.000 Follower. Doch es gibt auch kritische Stimmen: Viele Ärzte meinen, solche Bilder wären nicht für die Öffentlichkeit bestimmt. Dem kann sie nicht zustimmen: “Wenn Menschen wissen wollen, wie eine Obduktion aussieht, warum soll man es ihnen nicht zeigen?”

Außerdem postet die junge Amerikanerin regelmäßig Diagnose-Rätsel auf Instagram, die sie ein paar Tage später auflöst.

Hier findet ihr eine Auswahl der eklig-faszinierenden Fotos:

This is a 16 week fetus that was naturally miscarried. Squeezing of the fetal skull shows how the bones in the fetus are soft and unfused to we we think as a ridged adult skull. These bones remain soft and unfused until the baby is term at around 40 weeks. The reason is because when the fetus passes through the birth canal, the head squeezes through the tight birth canal to get out. Once the baby pops through and is crowning, the bones the pop back into place. This is a good video to show the importance of a newborns “soft spot”. This is where the bones are not yet fused and the center is covered by skin and a few layers of soft tissue. The brain is unprotected from bone for months to a year after birth. During this period of development, the newborn skull will continue to harden into firm, ridged bone and the bones will fuse closer together until the gap is closed. #iheartautopsy #pregnant #pregnancy #newborn #birth #childbirth #science #embryology #biology #skull #fetalskull #adultskull #anatomy #grossanatomy

I have been receiving SEVERAL emails from followers saying they are no longer receiving my posts. Click the (…) on the screen and turn on notifications. I also have an event I posted about yesterday @muttermuseum on Monday August 22 titled “Flesh and Bones”. This lecture is all about comparisons of medical/forensic TV shows vs what actually happens in the field. I will be co-lecturing with @anna_dhody who is a forensic anthropologist as well as the curator of the museum. The link for tickets is in my bio. 🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼 #iheartautopsy #gallstones #surgery #stones #nature #science #biology #healtheducation #instagram #funeral #funerals #dead #death #pathology #anatomy #mütter #müttermuseum #medicalmuseum #oddity #oddities

😷🐛😷🐛😷🐛😷🐛 You guys know I DON’T do maggots!!!!! Myiasis occurs when a person gets infested with maggots. They are not housefly maggots, but a certain kind that comes from species such as the botfly. These maggots typical feed on wounds, but they can even get in unbroken, healthy skin. They also can enter the body through the mouth, ears or eyes!!! Once infected, you have to receive medical treatment or these maggots will take over and basically eat your brain. Prevention is keeping clean and sanitary, but sometimes these infections are unavoidable in low socioeconomic areas. Another form of Myiasis is when a person has a dead extremity or limb with gangrene and a housefly lands on it accidentally and leaves eggs. The eggs will then turn into maggots and they will live off of the dead tissue. #iheartautopsy #myiasis #mysterydiagnosis #pathology #maggots #gross #bugs #nurse #nursing #diabetes #gangrene #poor
