Website Detail Page

published by the Public Broadcasting Service and the Chedd-Angier-Lewis Production Company
This PBS site contains hands-on activities that model obstructed blood vessels.  Materials are simple--straws, clay, and water--and the experiments are easy to do.  You'll model how blood pressure changes when a blood vessel is obstructed and also how elevated blood pressure can damage a weakened artery.  This site contains links to related PBS videos.
