1) Paint the affected areas with a cauterant, or apply surface compress(es) saturated with cauterant, or both after arterial injection. Products which have a phenol base or undiluted cavity fluid can be used. Allow time for products to work, and surfaces to dry. 2) If skin has been removed from posterior portions, elevate the body off the table using body bridges. After cleaning and disinfection, allow to air dry (fan/hair dryer may be used) to seal affected areas and preserve tissues (may take several hours). When dry, tissues will feel firm, with dark brown or yellow-brown appearance.
