Organic Molecules - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Organic molecules are compounds found in, or produced by living things. Each molecule contains two or more elements, including carbon. Carbon has four valence electrons and is able to bond with other elements that can contribute another four electrons to complete its outer shell. Carbon atoms can form long chains, or carbon backbones as a base for a variety of organic molecules. Carbon's ability to bond with itself and other elements, allow it to form complex molecules necessary for life, such as carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids. Carbohydrates are organic molecules made up of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Carbohydrates have a two to one ratio of hydrogen to carbon and oxygen. For example, glucose has 12 hydrogen atoms, six carbon atoms, and six oxygen atoms. Carbohydrates are important energy sources for cells. Proteins are chains of amino acids. All amino acids consist of a central carbon atom connected to a hydrogen atom, an amino group, and a carboxyl group. The radical group differentiates each amino acid. Amino acids join together to form peptides. Longer chains of amino acids are called polypeptides. Groups of polypeptides join to form proteins. Proteins have a complex, coiled, and folded structure that determines their function. Proteins provide structural support, regulate the body, transport other molecules, aid in chemical reactions, fight foreign invaders, allow for contraction of muscles, and bind cells together. Lipids are organic molecules composed mainly of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Fatty acids are lipids consisting of a carboxyl group, a chain of hydrocarbons, and a methyl group. Triglycerides are three fatty acids bonded to a glycerol molecule. Lipids are important for energy storage and thermal insulation in body fat. Nucleic acids are composed of repeating units called nucleotides. Each nucleotide has three segments, a monosaccharide, a carbon-nitrogen ring, and one or more phosphate groups. Nucleic acids such as DNA are important for storage and transmission of genetic information. ♪ [music] ♪

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"Thanks, and your illustrations were effective in a $3 million dollar verdict last Friday."

"For us, the defining feature of effective demonstrative evidence is whether, by itself, the piece will tell the story of the case. Medical legal Art provides our firm with illustrations and animations that are clear and persuasive. Their exhibits tell the story in a way that allows the jury to understand a very complex subject, very quickly."

"Your firm is great to work with and, most importantly for me, you get the job done on time and with the utmost professionalism. You should be proud of all those you employ, from KJ to Ben B. I've been especially pleased over the years with the work of Brian and Alice, both of whom seem to tolerate my idiosycratic compulsion to edit, but I've not found a bad apple in the bunch (and, as you know, I've used your firm a bunch!). I look forward to our continued professional relationship."
