We know that many of our readers are browsing at work. And we like to think of ourselves as responsible professionals, both in medicine and in blogging.
Thus, there was much internal debate at Medgadget HQ over whether we could publish an account of this disturbing product.

Seymour Butts 900 — the most comprehensive wound care model of its kind, molded from a 74-year-old patient, looks and feels just like the real thing! All four stages of pressure ulcers are displayed – some with the additional complications of undermining, tunneling, sinus tract, slough, infection, and exposed bone. Also displayed are an unstageable eschar, a sutured incision, herpes and candidiasis…
