1

A non-toxic disinfectant suitable for use on animal tissue.

Antiseptic

2

Freedom from infection and from any form of life- sterility

Asepsis

3

An agonal bacterial invasion of the body, usually by the putrefactive bacterial, usually confined to the colon, migrating into the blood vascular and skeleton system.
- presence of bacteria in the blood

Bacteremia

4

Destructive to bacteria.

Bactericidal

5

Destruction of bacteria by action of certain chemical substances.

Bacteriolysis

6

Agent that has the ability to inhibit or retard bacterial growth; no destruction of viability of the microorganism is implied.

Bacteriostatic Agent

7

Removal of infectious agents by scrubbing and washing, as with hot water, soap, or suitable detergent.

Cleaning

8

An agent, usually chemical, applied to inanimate objects or surfaces for the purpose of destroying disease-causing microbial agents, but usually not bacterial spores.

Disinfectant

9

The destruction and or inhibition of most pathogenic organisms and their products in or on the body.

Disinfection

10

An agent, usually chemical, applied either to inanimate objects or surfaces or living tissues for the purpose of destroying disease-causing microbial agents, but usually not bacterial spores.

Germicide

11

An agent, usually chemical, that possesses disinfecting properties when applied to a pre-cleaned object or surface.

Sanitizer

12

A process that renders a substance free of all microorganisms.

Sterilization

13

Formulated by the action of pure phenol on pure cultures of Bacillus typhosus or other similar bacteria. The relative germicidal value of other disinfectants is determined by comparing their germ killing power with that of phenol under identical conditions.
- Less killing power is less than 1.0
- More killing power is greater than 1.0

Phenol- Coefficient

14

The process in which a gaseous agent is used to destroy rodents and insects. Some are:
- Hydrogen cyanide
- Sulfur dioxide
- HCHO gas (formaldehyde gas)

Fumigation

15

An agent which is destructive to insect larvae (maggots are primary larvae), such as:
- Malathion
- Diazinon
- Chlordane

Larvacide

16

A chemical agent capable of destroying saprophytic or pathogenic fungi such as mold. (Fungi are more resistant than bacteria to chemical agents and can easily survive on an embalmed body.)

Fungicide

17

Is a poor, almost useless fungicidal agent.

Formaldehyde

18

Has fungicides built into them.

Preservative jelly, such as Postene (phenol)

19

- Mucor
- Aspergillis
- Penicillium

Common, most troublesome molds that the embalmer must face

20

1. Carbolated Vaseline
2. Paradichlorobenzene

The fungicides most commonly used by embalmers

21

A substance able to destroy lice. Example: Rid

Pediculicide

22

An agent destructive to adult forms of insect life; same chemicals as larvicide.

Pesticide (Insecticide)

23

The metabolic entity of growth, reproduction and locomotion.

Life

24

A group of cells will form a tissue, groups of tissue will form organs, groups of organs will form systems, and groups of systems will form an:
- Heart
- Lungs
- Brain

Individual Organism

25

- Heart
- Lungs
- Brain

Tripod of Life

26

The irreversible, total cessation of metabolic activity.
- Necrobiosis
- Necrosis

Death

27

The death of certain groups of cells and their subsequent replacement by new cells in the normal course of bodily activities.

Necrobiosis

28

The pathological death of certain cells or tissues of a still living body.
- Gangrene
- Dry gangrene
- Wet Gangrene
- Gas Gangrene

Necrosis

29

Antemortem cellular death.

Gangrene

30

The result of a blockage or degenerative condition of the arteries (arterial obstruction).

Dry Gangrene
