“In the 1950s, passive exercise became popular, appealing to people who wanted or needed to lose weight but did not like exercise.” Learn more on Canada’s obsession with body image in ‘Fighting Fat’ by Wendy Mitchinson. . . . #cdnhistory #cdnhist #fat #bodyimage #bodyimagemovement #foodstudies #nutritionists #obesity #fightingobesity #histmed #20thcentury #bodyimage #cdnhist #foodstudies #fightingobesity #20thcentury #bodyimagemovement #fat #obesity #nutritionists #histmed #cdnhistory
Early 20th century syringe case with some syringes inside (1900-1920) though a couple of the hand etched glass syringes look like they could be older maybe late 19th century (1880-1900), it's missing a couple of syringes and some parts to a couple of the syringes but I still think it's a good find #syringe #syringes #oldsyringe #oldsyringes #vintagesyringe #vintagesyringes #antiquesyringe #antiquesyringes #hypodermicsyringe #medicalsyringe #medicalsyringes #histmed #historyofmedicine #medicalhistory #antiquemedical #medicalantique #vintagemedical #medicalvintage #medicalcollectables #medicalandcollectables #historyofsyringes #syringehistory #historyofthesyringe #medicaltools #historicmedicaltools #antiquemedical #syringes #vintagesyringes #vintagesyringe #medicalsyringes #antiquesyringe #syringehistory #medicalantique #medicalvintage #histmed #historyofthesyringe #antiquesyringes #historicmedicaltools #hypodermicsyringe #vintagemedical #oldsyringe #medicalhistory #historyofsyringes #medicalsyringe #medicalandcollectables #historyofmedicine #medicalcollectables #oldsyringes #medicaltools #syringe
Must All that Lives Die? An article by Type & Forme’s Dr Anke Timmermann in a special issue of Robinson College Cambridge alumni magazine Bin Brook, fresh off the press, with a special focus on medicine. . . Alchemy, pharmacy and medicine were closely connected with each other in the medieval and early modern Western world, and the quest for a healthy, long and happy life was pursued, among other things, with the help of (al)chemically produced remedies. . . Anke’s PhD and subsequent career as a researcher focused on manus that preserved this knowledge in text and image - and this article draws on manus now held at Cambridge University Library (where Anke was Munby Fellow in 2013/14). If you would like to learn more about alchemy and its fascinating role in the history of medicine, join us at the Gravity Fields Science Festival in Grantham this September!

Here is the record of Patrick Manson's appointment, in 1894, to lecturer in tropical diseases at #SGUL. This entry is from our series of St George’s Hospital Medical School Committee Minute Books. Manson pushed for the creation of @LSHTM, and collaborated with Ronald Ross in developing mosquito-malaria theory #Archives #HistMed #WorldMosquitoDay #Medicine #History #Mosquito #University #Archive #archives #university #archive #worldmosquitoday #medicine #sgul #mosquito #histmed #history

Interested in the dissection culture of the nation’s first medical school for women? Interested to learn how medical students used photography to express their identities? Interested in reading some bonkers theories on why the public didn’t want women participating in dissection, or how female physicians countered such thinking? Shoot on over to NursingClio.org and check out my article! Lots of amazing photographs too, like this cyanotype, ca. 1896.

"The Machine" by Angelique Marguerite Le Boursier du Coudray. Coudray (1712 – 1794), was a pioneering and revolutionary midwife who invented the first lifesize obstetrical mannequin, for simulating chilbirth. She called her teaching aid "The Machine", it came with a leather and cloth fetus which could be placed in any number of different positions to simulate the complications of a real delivery. #histmed #anatomy #childbirth #midwifery #obstetrics #mannequins #childbirth #obstetrics #anatomy #histmed #midwifery #mannequins
One of my favorite books from last weekend's adventure at the IMSS was a "practical" guide from 1912 for building a medical practice. It includes typical fees for surgical and other medical procedures and also breaks them down by class(!🤕!) and provides tips for billing frequency and good office practices. Trephination? That'll be on the order of $100. #histmed #histmed
Antique first world war Silver and Tortoiseshell Royal Army Medical Corps 'sweetheart' pendant engraved with 'in arduis fidelis' (faithful in adversity) For soldiers during World Wars I and II, exchanging letters and mementos kept them connected with the home front and strengthened bonds with friends and loved ones back at home. Many of the sentimental items that were sent home from servicemen are referred to as “sweetheart” collectibles now The tradition of sending home keepsake items actually started during World War I when the strain of the Great War made keeping in touch with the folks back home seem even more important, One of the favorite ways to show patriotism and feel close to those serving our country was expressed through wearing a special piece of jewelry reflecting the branch of service a sweetheart, son or brother was representing. Whether in the form of a necklace, bracelet or pin, these patriotic symbols provide a heart-felt look back at these times of conflict Many pieces are constructed of inexpensive wire, natural materials such as mother of pearl, hand carved wood, coins, and anything else readily available. Many pieces handcrafted by lonely service personnel made their way back home. These are often referred to as "trench art," since some of them were literally made in the trenches overseas #trenchart #sweetheartjewelry #ramc #royalarmymedicalcorps #ww1 #worldwar1 #royalmedicalcorps #worldwarone #militaryhistory #cabinetofcuriosities #lestweforget #sweetheartpendant #lovetoken #ww1medical #histmed #medicalhistory #history #fiftyshades_of_history #medicalandcollectables #medicalcollectables #mymilitarystuff #sweetheartjewellry #militaryhistory #sweetheartjewelry #worldwarone #royalmedicalcorps #lovetoken #cabinetofcuriosities #fiftyshades_of_history #mymilitarystuff #ww1 #sweetheartjewellry #histmed #worldwar1 #trenchart #lestweforget #medicalhistory #royalarmymedicalcorps #medicalandcollectables #medicalcollectables #ww1medical #sweetheartpendant #history #ramc
ENGLISH AND PORTUGUESE . . ℹAqui está uma incrível foto feita por um microscópio eletrônico de varredura colorido de um feto humano de oito semanas de idade. . ℹO olho, o nariz e as mãos do feto são visíveis. A oitava semana de gravidez representa o fim do estágio de desenvolvimento formativo e o embrião se torna um feto. . ℹTodos os principais órgãos dos sistemas são formados até a oitava semana, mas ainda requerem muito crescimento, uma vez que o feto tem apenas 3 centímetros de comprimento entre a cabeça e a nádega. . . @medshots . . Here is an amazing shot of a coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an eight week old human foetus. The foetus's eye, nose and hands are visible. The eighth week of pregnancy represents the end of the formative development stage, and the embryo becomes a foetus. All major organ systems are formed by the eighth week, but require much growth since the foetus is only 3 centimetres in crown-rump length. . . #embriologia #morfologia #microscopia #dissection #dissecção #dissecação #anatomy #nurse #anatomia #anatomie #medicine #medicina #fisioterapia #physio #psych #psychiatry #psychology #psicologia #physiotherapy #histmed #historyofmedicine #medicalhistory #history #humananatomy #enfermagem #odontologia #odontology #fono #fono #anatomy #psychology #fisioterapia #embriologia #morfologia #medicine #psych #dissection #physiotherapy #medicina #humananatomy #histmed #odontology #physio #dissecação #microscopia #dissecção #psychiatry #odontologia #psicologia #medicalhistory #anatomie #enfermagem #nurse #historyofmedicine #anatomia #history
Swipe through our 4-part comic by artist Rob Bidder all about rocks and stones. . #DidYouKnow kidney stones are quite common, affecting around three in 20 men and up to two in 20 women. While most will be passed naturally (if not a little painfully!) some can reach gargantuan sizes. In December 2003, a kidney stone weighing 356g and measuring nearly 12cm was removed from a man in Australia. And in 2017, a 2kg stone, spanning 20cm, was surgically removed from a man in London. You can try to avoid this fate by drinking plenty of water every day! . #WellcomeCollection #comic #webcomic #illustration #cartoon #histmed #museum #bodysquabbles #stones #kidneystones #gallstones #rocks #geology #facts #didyouknow #wellcomecollection #bodysquabbles #stones #facts #gallstones #museum #rocks #comic #kidneystones #geology #webcomic #illustration #histmed #cartoon
