Embalming Q3

solid parts of blood separate from fluid parts plasma filtration
what percentage of blood is in the arteries? 5%
what percentage of blood is in the veins? 10%
what percentage of blood is in the capillaries? 85%
blood drainage method that involves building back pressure by injecting, then draining, then injecting, then draining, etc; most efficient method of blood drainage alternate drainage
blood drainage method in which you close the vein, begin injecting, continue injection & open the vein; continuous injection intermittent drainage
two types of restricted drainage alternate & intermittent
blood drainage method in which injection & drainage are continuous concurrent/continuous drainage
most effective blood drainage method alternate drainage
least effective blood drainage method concurrent/continuous drainage
most common blood drainage method concurrent/continuous
bluish discoloration of the tissues due to lack of oxygen in the blood cyanotic
fluid between cells interstitial fluid
antemortem injuries resulting from friction of the skin against a firm object resulting in the removal of the epidermis abrasion
method of injection-drainage in which embalming solution is injected and then injection is stopped while drainage is open alternate drainage (restricted drainage)
generalized massive edema in subcutaneous tissue anasarca
disease of the arteries resulting in thickening, hardening, and loss of elasticity of the arterial walls arteriosclerosis
accumulation of serous fluids in the peritoneal cavity ascites
insufficient intake of oxygen resulting from any of numerous causes asphyxia
apparatus used for sterilization by steam pressure, usually at 250*F/121*C for a specific time autoclave
formation of new channels in a tissue canalization
drainage procedure that limits the exposure of the embalmer to the drainage. tubing is attached to a drain tube allowing drainage to flow directly from a vein into a sanitary disposal system closed system drainage
disinfection practices carried out during the embalming process concurrent disinfection
crackling sensation produced when gases trapped in tissues are palpated, as in subcutaneous emphysema crepitation
sloughing off of the epidermis, wherein there is a separation of the epidermis from the underlying dermis skin slip/desquamation
a condition that results when the body part that dies had little blood and remains aseptic; occurs when arteries but not the veins are obstructed dry gangrene
removal of the eye for tissue transplantation, research, or education eye enucleation
extravasation of blood as a result of eye enucleation eye enucleation discoloration
necrosis, death of tissues of part of the body, usually due to deficient or absent blood supply gangrene
necrotic tissue that is wet as a result of inadequate venous drainage; may be accompanied by the invasion of saprophytic bacteria moist gangrene
injection of embalming chemicals directly into the tissues through the use of a syringe and needle or a trocar hypodermic embalming
the swelling and softening of tissues and organs as a result of absorbing moisture from adjacent sources imbibition
fluid inside cells of the body (constituting about one-half of the body weight) intercellular fluid/interstitial fluid
method of drainage in which the drainage is stopped at intervals while the injection continues intermittent drainage (restricted drainage)
condition that results when the body part that dies had little blood and remains aseptic and occurs when the arteries but not the veins are obstructed ischemic necrosis (dry gangrene)
wound characterized by irregular tearing of tissue laceration
specific pathologic structural and functional changes or both brought about by disease or injury lesion
to examine by touch palpate
antemortem discoloration that occurs during the course of certain diseases; gangrene and jaundice pathological discoloration
disinfection carried out prior to the embalming process primary disinfection
the recovery of organs or tissues from a cadaver for transplantation or study procurement
postmortem evacuation of any substance from an external orifice of the body as a result of pressure purge
a darkened, air-dried area on the skin resulting from removal of the epidermis while shaving razor burn/razor abrasion
repeated aspiration of a cavity re-aspiration
intermittent or alternate injection and drainage restricted drainage
distention of the tissues beneath the skin by gas or air; an antemortem condition brought about by a surgical procedure or trauma subcutaneous emphysema
the direct contact of body tissues with embalming chemicals surface embalming
an absorbent material compress saturated with an embalming chemical and placed in direct contact with the tissue surface pack
postmortem accumulation of gas in tissues or cavities brought about by an anaerobic gas-forming bacillus, Clostridium perfringens tissue gas
a physical injury or wound caused by external force or violence trauma
