1. Anatomy: Pause the video before the first incision. Looking at the external structures of the next (for example at 00:14), identify where you would find the thyroid cartilage, epiglottis, left common carotid artery, left vagus nerve and left internal jugular vein. [Or sketch these structures onto your interactive video.]
