I work in an office of a pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon. I purchased this model for the kids. It is sturdy and can get bumped around without getting broken. Plus it obviously fits the specialty of our office.
Oddly enough I bought this as a Valentine is Day present from my wife. She loved it! I never intended to use it for anything more than a novelty display gift, but I ive actually taken to getting to know it more thanks to the manual that came with it.
Heart anatomy models are available in a lot more places than I thought when I started my search for a study aid, but I was really happy that I bought this one in particular. Being oversized, high quality, and affordable made it a really easy decision to go with Axis for my needs.
