This product is known for its ability to work across a broader spectrum, it is less harmful than formaldehyde, and gives the embalmer less chance of tissues turning "putty gray"
dehydrate, disinfect, reduce chance of tissues turning grey/black
3 functions / reasons alcohol are added to HCHO
if an emb fluid contains a 20 index product, how many grams of formaldehyde gas per 100 mL of concentrated fluid is there?
In embalming, preservation of the body (tissues) comes about when ( blank! ) occurs
shell embalming , short circuiting
when the embalmer arterially injects the body, the fluid takes the path of least resistance. If there is already fluid in the interstitial space/areas, and the arterial solution just merely "passes through" the vascular system, what is this referred to?
This (main) embalming chemical changes a protein from a state in which it is easily decompose to a state where it will endure and not undergo putrefaction.
This chemical in embalming fluid allows for disinfection of the body tissues. It can also be used as surface disinfectant for the nasal cav, oral cav, and surface of body
Quartnery Ammonium Compound
This disinfecting agent cannot be used in arterial fluids, however it can be used in cavity fluids (also used for cold sterilization of instruments)
These modifying agents increase the capability of embalmed tissue to retain moisture, as well as controlling and delaying the firming / and or drying action of preservatives.
These modifying agents serve a variety of purposes, most notably controlling or determining the osmotic qualities of the embalming soln. They can also help to draw out fluid from the cappillaries, or even draw fluid to capps for drainage purposes.
Additives, supplemental chemicals used to improving drainage by softening up clotted material. They also work to reduce the hardness of water, which enhances the function of arterial fluid in body
