Our Modelling Careers

Over the weekend, Rob and I were models. It's true!

AHAHahaha!  No.

The 3 muscle layers that help keep your insides, inside.
However, the people watching us strut our stuff knew it was what's inside that counts.
This is because we were models for an ANZCA conference, demonstrating our abdominal muscle layers and lumbar/sacral vertebrae.  This was to teach anaesthetic consultants how to perform nerve blocks and epidurals under ultrasound.  I have done this type of modelling for Sonosite a number of  times now.  It's an easy job (hold still) and I always learn a lot.  They like having Rob for demonstrating echo cardiograms because he has very nice landmarks and good valves.By the end of the workshops we usually have a couple bruises from 3 dozen people poking us in the same places over and over.  Fortunately, they practice putting needles into a silicon phantom instead of us. They would have to pay a LOT better for me to be willing to be a pincushion!
