Embalming QIII


the slowing of PM decomp, disinfection, cutting down on secondary dilution, removal of discoloration, and pH neutrality are reasons for blood drainage
before death, blood is located in the arteries, veins, heart, and capillaries
after death, blood is located in the dependent parts
a blood drainage technique where you inject/drain/inject/drain separately to build back pressure alternate draining
this is the most efficient method of blood drainage alternate draining
a blood drainage technique in which the vein is closed off during the first few minutes of arterial injection, then the vein is opened intermittent draining
these two drainage methods are considered restricted drainage alternate and intermittent
a blood drainage technique where there is both constant injection and constant drainage concurrent/continuous draining
this is the least effective drainage technique concurrent/continuous draining
a drainage technique in which you insert the trocar into the heart itself heart tap
why is the heart tap not recommended? you may hit the aorta, damage the circulatory system, and the trocar gets clogged
drainage tubes, long forceps, hot/cold compresses are some examples of methods for _____ _______ assisted drainage
direct treatment other than b arterial injection of the contents of the body cavity and the lumina of the hollow viscera normally through aspiration and gravity injection cavity treatment
3 reasons for cavity treatment 1) tissue in the viscera need stronger fluid than muscle, 2) a lot of clotting in the viscera, 3) arterial fluid doesn't hit the viscera
in the four region plan, the abdomen is divided into four quadrants with the _____ at the center umbilicus
9 region abdomen plan: superior row right/left hypochondriac, center epigastric
9 region abdomen plan: middle row right/left lateral or lumbar, center umbilical
9 region abdomen plan: bottom row right/left inguinal or iliac, center hypogastric
direct the trocar point towards the intersection of the 5th intercostal space and left of the mid-axillary line stomach
direct the trocar point toward a point 1/4 of the distance from the right anterior superior iliac spine to the pubic symphysis, keep point close to the muscle wall until 4 inches from the spot, then lift handle 2 inches cecum
direct trocar towards the intersection of the midline and pubic symphysis, hit the bone, pull back 1/2 inch and dip trocar in urinary bladder
direct trocar along an imaginary line from the left anterior superior iliac spine to the lobe of the right ear right atrium
t/f re-aspiration should be performed for Crohn's disease patients as well as obese bodies true
should you inject more cavity fluid after reaspiration? yes, always
to inject the lower limbs from inside the abdominal cavity in an autopsy case, you must use which vessels? iliacs
insert through nostril through cribriform plate of ethmoid bone to achieve what kind of aspiration/injection? cranial aspiration
the post mortem evacuation of any substance from any external opening of a dead body purge
brown liquid/semisolid coffee grounds purge with a sour odor stomach purge
white frothy odorless purge lung purge
white, creamy, sticky, odorless purge brain purge
body's rejection of fluid, same color as the arterial fluid fluid purge
rupture of circulatory system, usually pools in oral cavity (purge) blood purge
how do you treat purge? 1) Allow it to continue (protect surrounding skin), 2)aspirate
condition in which gaseous products of putrefaction and fermentation appear in the skeletal tissues of the body tissue gas
rice krispies feel of skin in tissue gas case crepitation
to combat tissue gas, use high index arterial and cavity fluids, t/f? true
you would hypodermically inject a 55% cavity fluid to "wall off" which embalming problem? tissue gas
an abnormal accumulation of a plasma-like fluid in the cells, intercellular tissue spaces, and in the cavities of the body (two terms) edema, dropsy
edema in which cells have taken on water over a period of time, does not respond well to embalming solid edema
water between cells, you can press a finger into this skin and the depression will remain pitting edema
widespread edema throughout the body anasarca
hydroperitoneum, water in the abdomen ascites
edema of the thoracic cavity hydrothorax
edema of the pleura pleurisy
increase of fluid in the heart sac hydropericardium
edema of the head hydrocephalus
edema of the scrotum hydrocele
never use a preinjection in a ____ case edema
a strong specialized hygroscopic fluid is recommended in a _____ case edema
waterless embalming would be recommended in a _____ case edema
low pressure and low rate of flow are recommended in a ____ case edema
build up of calcium on
