adductor longus The femoral artery is bordered medially by the ___ muscle.
adductor magnus The femoral artery originates at a point behind the center of the inguinal ligament and terminates at the opening of the ___ muscle.
popliteal The ___ artery which originates at the opening in the adductor magus muscle, terminates at the inferior border of the popliteous muscle.
Time Weighted Average (TWA) A concentration of .75 parts formaldehyde per million parts of air (.75 ppm) averaged over an 8 hour period.
Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL) A concentration of 2 parts formaldehyde per million parts of air (2 ppm) during a 15 minute period.
Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) defines IDLH as 20 parts formaldehyde per million parts of air (1996);NIOSH has determined that at this level of exposure serious injury and or death may result
anterior tibial artery The ___ artery courses along the lateral margin of the crest of the tibia, passes through the center of the anterioir surface of the ankle joint and becomes the dorsalis pedis artery.
anasarca Distention of the body tissues is a complication of
age, weight, disease One of the factors to be considered in selecting the artery to be injected is
1/2 When using the gravity method of obtaining pressure for injecting aterial fluid, the embalmer can expect to receive approximately ___ pounds per pressure per foot of elevation above the point of injection.
set before the rate of flow When injecting a body with any mechanical injector, the desired pressure should be
one point The injection and drainage procedure in which the injection and drainage are accomplished through the same incision is called
PEL of STEL permissible exposure limit..under 2ppm
PEL for TWA permissible exposure limit...under .5ppm
Restricted Cervical Injection method of injection wherein both common carotid arteries are raised
Split Injection injection from one site and drainage from another
Primary Dilution the dilution attained as the embalming solution is mixed in the embalming machine
Secondary Dilution weakening of the embalming fluid by the fluids in the body, both vascular and interstitial
Distribution (Fluid) the movement of embalming solutions from the point of injection throughout the arterial system and into the capillaries
Diffusion (Fluid) passage of some components of the injected embalming solution from an intravascular to an extravascular location; movement of the embalming solutions from the capillaries into the interstitial fluids.
Osmosis diffusion of molecules through a semipermeable membrane from a place of higher concentration to a place of lower concentration until the concentration on both sides is equal
Pressure (Filtration) positive intravascular pressure causing passage of embalming fluid through the capillary wall to diffuse with the interstitial fluids; causing passage of embalming fluid from an intravascular to an extravascular position
diminish secondary dilution, remove intravasculor discolorations, and prevent distention The embalmer should remove as much blood from the body as possible to
alternate The method of drainage in relaton to injection in which an amount of aterial fluid is injected and then drainage is allowed to flow for a period of time, each one seperatly is the __ method.
Intermittent Drainage Restricted Drainage; method of drainage in which the drainage is stopped at intervals while the injection continues
