The concentrated, preservative, embalming chemical that will be diluted with water to form the arterial solution for injection into the arterial system during vascular (arterial) embalming. The purpose is rendering saprophytic bacteria and rendering body tissues less susceptible to decomposition.

Arterial Fluid (Vascular Fluid)

2

Condition in which the manifestations of life are feebly maintained.

Apparent Death

3

The mouth and the vestibule, or the opening to the throat.

Oral Cavity

4

Space between the roof of the mouth and the floor of the cranial cavity.

Nasal cavity

5

Necrotic tissue that is wet as a result of inadequate venous drainage, may be accompanied by bacterial infection.

Moist (Wet) Gangrene

6

Condition that results when the bodily part that dies had little blood and remains aseptic and occurs when the arteries but not the veins are obstructed.

Dry Gangrene (Ischemic Necrosis)

7

The separation and the pushing aside of the superficial fascia leading to blood vessels and then the deep fascia surrounding blood vessels, utilizing manual techniques or round ended instruments which separate rather than cut the protective tissues.

Blunt Dissection

8

Antemortem necrosis in a wound infected by an anaerobic gas forming bacillus, the most common etiologic agent being Clostridium perfringens.

Gas Gangrene

9

15

The arm pit.

Aspiration

22

Insufficient intake of oxygen resulting from numerous causes.

26

The movement of blood from the heart and arteries to the capillaries and veins, which occurs at the moment of death.

28

The semi-convulsive twitches which often occur before death.

Death Struggle

29

Accumulation of serous fluids in the peritoneal cavity.
