Atherosclerosis: 3D blood animation to explain it

7 Minutes


Blood diseases and disorders are very common among the population: from anemia to hemophilia, thrombocythemia, polycythemia vera, or eosinophilia; all of them affect some blood components.

All of these diseases involve some abnormality in the plasma, one of the blood components, i.e. red blood cells, white blood cells or platelets, or in the blood vessels, and are classified according to the element affected and the causes.

Atherosclerosis: 3D blood animation

3D animation as an explanatory method: atherosclerosis case

To explain any of these disorders, as well as their symptoms, diagnosis, and possible treatment, one of the best possible allies is 3D medical animation.

In this way, an abnormal increase of red blood cells, or the decrease of white blood cells, as well as the coagulation problems caused by an increase of platelets in the organism, and their causes, can be shown.

Like in the following video, shows atherosclerosis, a common condition that develops when a sticky substance – like cholesterol, fat, or blood cells -,  builds up in the arteries.

It affects most of the arteries in the body, including the brain, heart, arm, legs, and kidneys arteries.

Healthy arteries are flexible and elastic, but over time, artery walls can harden, producing what is called atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis occurs when the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients from the heart to the rest of the body thicken and harden, narrowing the arteries and sometimes restricting blood flow to organs and tissues. 

Among its possible causes are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, obesity and diabetes, arthritis, lupus, or psoriasis.

Symptoms of Atherosclerosis: 3D medical animation 

Symptoms may include chest tightness, sudden numbness or weakness in the arms or legs, slurred speech or slurred speech, temporary loss of vision in one eye, or drooping of the muscles of the face, depending on the area affected.

Thus, 3D animation proves once again to be the best ally to explaining in a clear and concise way these procedure types, both for patients and the general public, as well as for companies, medical visitors, or health personnel.

This type of material creates an environment where users are much more likely to retain the message. They contain a clear and more direct explanation.

 Another possibility offered by these videos is to show things out of reality. Between other formats and this, 3D video always attracts more attention from the viewer.
