In October 2017 The Chirurgeon's Apprentice Dr. Lindsey Fitzharris came to The Mütter Museum to discuss her book, The Butchering Art, about Joseph Lister and Victorian Medicine. Mütter Curator Anna Dhody invited Dr. Fitzharris for a behind the scenes tour. In this video they end up in our Bone Room, where they discuss 19th century medicine, from tuberculosis to child birth, and antisepsis to anatomy…

Here’s another feature for #internationalmuseumday, Surgeons' Hall Museums in Edinburgh (UK). Three collections - pathology, surgery, and dental, open to the public seven days a week. ・・・ More great work done by our Human Remains Conservator, This brain shows an abscess and thrombosis. Unfortunately, while in the jar it developed a problem with mould, and so it was removed and treated with anti-fungal agents before being re-mounted in new fluid. A big improvement!

Next up for our #internationalmuseumday feature is this marvelous mid-west medical museum, the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago (USA). ・・・ "This reddish-brown, extremely bitter liquid was used as treatment for many afflictions, mental and physical. Laudanum is an opium tincture containing opium alkaloids: morphine and codeine. It was named by Paracelsus, “the father of toxicology,” and was believed to mean “something to be praised” in Latin. Used throughout Victorian society as a muscle relaxer, cough suppressant, etc., the medicine is highly addictive. It has the reputation of having inspired writers, poets and artists, such as Charles Dickens, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Thomas De Quincey. In 1868 after numerous overdoses of the once over-the-counter drug, restrictions were put into place and the bottle had to be clearly labeled as a poison."

First on our #internationalmuseumday feature:...

First on our #internationalmuseumday feature: Want to see a medical collection with bite? The Wellcome Collection in London (UK) has a new exhibition on teeth open now through September, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg…it’s free. ・・・ This is a late 18th century ivory obturator with human teeth, believed to have belonged to Sir Edmund Burke. . Edmund Burke was an Irish-born writer and politician, widely regarded as the philosophical founder of modern conservatism. He moved to London in 1750, where he served as an MP for 28 years. This prosthesis appears to have had the dual function of providing an upper set of teeth – human teeth riveted into the ivory base – and sealing a hole, front right in the roof of the mouth, suggesting that the wearer had a cleft palate. . You can see these and more at our new #Teethexhibition opening on 17 May. From folk remedies and tooth fairies to barber-surgeons and professional dentists, Teeth tells the tale of our pursuit of a pain-free mouth and the perfect smile.

Happy International Nurses Day! Did you know ...

Happy International Nurses Day! Did you know we have Florence Nightingale's sewing kit in our collection? To learn more about Florence Nightingale, check out this timeline of her life and work.

    Florence Nightingale: Saving lives with statistics
    Consultant Mark Bostridge Nightingale biographer Florence Nightingale was so much more than a lady with a lamp. The legend of the saintly nurse has long obscured the truth - that her mathematical genius was what really saved so many lives.

Today is #InternationalNursesDay! This is Florence Nightingale’s sewing kit, that she used during the Crimean War, 1853-6. Florence Nightingale and a team of volunteer nurses cared for British soldiers, cleaning the hospital and ensuring soldiers were treated with respect. After the war she worked with statisticians to analyze military health and deaths. They learned that like the US Civil War, more soldiers actually died of diseases than injury. Nightingale is noted as a pioneer in nursing, stats, and public health.
