My Olfactory is ready to enjoying the hues - of garlic, basil and BBQ's

True story

A couple years ago in April I tripped in my back yard and connected face to pavement. In shock I laid there briefly confused by what just happened. My first thought was my teeth and I gingerly used my tongue to see if they were still intact. I slowly got up and stumbled into the house with my 8 yr old trailing behind me scared as I was bleeding profusely. In the bathroom I surveyed the damage to my face. Once the bleeding stopped it was clear I had broken my nose. Shakily I touched the bridge and could feel the fracture.  I then brought both hands up to either side and snapped it back in place. Don't judge - I was in shock, in hindsight of course I should have gone to the hospital but I stubbornly declared I was fine.  And I was, for an hour.  I then spent the next 2 days in bed with ice on my face and a killer headache.  BTW- the black eyes were a work of art. It was eight months before my nose was back to its normal size.

In honor of this day in history I am offering a 20% discount off our Nose and Olfactory Organ Set, item 0135-00  

Two unbreakable plastic models on one hardwood base depict the nose and nasal passages enlarged to four times their normal size. A wonderful supplement to dissection because it depicts structures inaccessible in most dissections.

The model on the right depicts:

  • Nasal septum
  • Septal arteries and veins
  • Inner group of olfactory nerve filaments
  • Nasopalatine nerve
  • Soft and hard palate
  • Uvula and the cranial floor

The model on the left depicts:

  • Left nostril
  • Olfactory nerve bulb and filaments
  • Spheno-palatine ganglion
  • Communicating sinuses
  • Arteries and veins
  • Pharyngeal orifice of the Eustachian tube
  • Nasal conchae 
  • Turbinate bone and nasolacrimal canal

32 numbered features are identified in the accompanying key.

Overall dimensions: 18x4x14 inches (48x10x 36cm).
