Method of mouth closure in which a suture is passed through the septum of the nose and through the mentalis muscle of the chin.
Musculature (Muscular) Suture
The movement of the arterial solution through the capillaries into the intercellular spaces, from an intravascular to an extravascular position.
Condition in which interstitial spaces contain such excessive amounts of fluid that the skin remains depressed after palpation.
Postmortem accumulation of gas in tissues or cavities brought about by an anaerobic gas forming bacillus- Clostridium perfringens.
These levels are established to ensure adequate protection of employees at exposures below the OSHA limits, but to minimize the compliance burdens for employers whose employees have exposures below the 8 hour permissible exposure limit (PEL).
Action Level (AL-Exposure Limits)
Legal limits established by OSHA to which workers can be exposed continuously for a short period of time without damage or injury.
- Exposures that reach this limit should not be more than 15 minutes and not repeated more than 4 times per work day.
Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL)
The pressure which is indicated by the injector gague needle when the arterial tube is open and the arterial solution is flowing into the body.
A wasting; decrease in size of an organ or tissue.
Conditions characterized by excessive concentrations of bilirubin in the skin and tissues and deposition of excessive bile pigment in the skin, cornea, body fluids, and mucous membranes with the resulting yellow appearance of the patient.
Antemortem and/or postmortem settling of blood and/or other fluids to dependent portions of the body.
Method of mouth closure in which a suture is passed through the septum of the nose and around the mandible.
Removal of particles (liquid or solid) from a solution, as it passes through a membrane or other partial barrier.
Weakening of the embalming solution by the fluids in the body, both vascular and interstitial.
The building phase of postmortem metabolism. (Part of postmortem caloricity)
Abnormal accumulation of fluids in a saclike structure, especially the scrotal sac.
Pathological death of a tissue still part of the living organism.
Chemicals which kill or render incapible of reproducing disease causing microorganisms.
Ingredient of embalming fluids that retards the natural postmortem tendency of blood to become more viscous or prevents adverse reactions between blood and other embalming chemicals.
Underdevelopment of a tissue, organ or the body.
The rise in temperature after death due to continued cellular metabolism.
An agent used to remove chemical constituents from municipal water supplies that could interfere with drainage and preservation.
An evaluation of exposures that are time-weighted over an established period. It allows the exposure levels to be averaged generally over an eight-hour time period.
Time Weighted Average (TWA)
An organic compound containing nitrogen; any compounds formed when ammonia by replacement of one or more hydrogen atoms by organic radicals.
- The general formula for a primary is R-NH2.
Chemical that increases the ability of embalmed tissue to retain moisture.
Established by drawing a line which connects the two points where the pectoralis major and latissimus dorsi muscles blend into the chest wall.
Medial Border (Axillary Space)
The substance that is dissolved in a solution.
Destruction of red blood cells that liberates hemoglobin.
Circumscribed inflammation of the skin and deeper tissues that ends in suppuration and is accompanied by systemic symptoms, such as fever and leukocytosis; several communicating boils of the skin and subcutaneous tissues with the production and discharge of pus and dead tissue.
Within a cell or cells.
The red respiratory portion of the red blood cells, iron containing pigment of red blood cells functioning to carry oxygen to the cells.
