High-Index fluid
A specialized arterial fluid with an index that is greater than the normal index used in arterial fluid. These fluids are used on difficult cases which require more formaldehyde, such as a body that died from drowning or a body is a severe state of decomposition.
Homogeneous
A sample of matter with uniform composition.
Humectants
Chemicals which increase the capability of embalmed tissues to retain moisture.
Hydrate
Compound in which there is a chemical union between water and certain substances when they crystallize.
Hydrocarbon
An organic compound that contains carbon and hydrogen only.
Hydrogen (4 Characteristics)
Smallest, lightest element. Most abundant element in universe. Nascent. Diatomic
Hydrolysis
A chemical reaction in which a substance is broken down or dissociated by water; a reaction between a salt and water to yield an acid and a base.
Hypertonic solution
A solution having a greater concentration of dissolved solute than the solution to which it is compared.
Hypotonic solution
A solution having a lesser concentration of dissolved solute than the solution to which it is compared.
Inactive Dyes (Non-Cosmetic dyes)
Those dyes which do not impart color to body tissue.
Index
The strength of embalming fluids indicated by the number of grams of formaldehyde gas divided by (dissolved in) 100 milliliters of water.
Inertia
The property of matter to remain at a constant velocity unless acted upon by an outside force
Inorganic Chemistry
That branch of chemistry that studies the properties and reactions of elements, excluding organic or certain carbon containing compounds.
Ion
An atomic or molecular species with a positive (cation) or negative (anion) electrical charge; an atom of an element or a group of atoms acting as one unit that has lost or gained an electron or electrons.
Ionization
The dissociation of a substance in solution into ions.
Isomerism
The possession by two or more distinct compounds of the same molecular formula, each molecule having the same number of atoms of each element, but in different arrangement.
Isotonic solution
A solution having a equal concentration of dissolved solute as the solution to which it is compared.
Isotopes
Atoms of the same element which have different # of neutrons
Jaundice fluid
A specialized arterial fluid with special bleaching and coloring qualities for use on bodies with jaundice; usually they contain a low amount of formaldehyde
Kelvin
The base SI unit of temperature; an absolute scale of temperature; 0o C = 32o F = 273 Kelvin.
Kilogram
1000 grams. The basic unit of mass in the metric system.
Kinetic Energy
Energy of a body by virtue of its motion.
