Description
Anatomic model in a case, which consists of (a) a rectangular wood and cardboard suitcase that has
a lid hinged onto the bottom with three hinges at the back; the top and bottom of the suitcase are
reinforced with flat strips of wood and the corners with heavy plastic pieces; there are clasps
with locks at the front, left and right, and a handle in the centre; the inside of the suitcase has
a piece of leather which supports the lid when opened; the bottom has four cloth straps set into it

printed information on heavy paper cut into a circle; the card gives instructions on how to make a
formed sheet to cover the model's nose and mouth, using (f) a plastic form which is triangular in
shape, with rounded points and cut-out spaces for the nose and mouth; the form was to be used with
a forming apparatus and plastic sheets, but these are missing; (g) a cylindrical plastic bottle of
alcohol (now empty) is also included to use as a disinfectant for the model between trainees; the
bottle has a cylindrical tapered neck and a round cap; there is a printed paper label on the outside
which has instructions in four languages; (h) a printed sheet of paper lists the methods of
