Flashcards in 3rd Quarter Embalming Test 5 Deck (16):
action of a force against an opposing force (a force applied or acting against resistances).
whatever pressure is necessary to overcome initial vascular resistance and distribute embalming solution to all areas of the dead human body
adjective to describe pressure
speed at which fluid is injected...measured in ounces per minute
rate of flow
rate of flow is controlled by a __________ on the embalming machine, which controls the ____________ much like a water faucet
flow of fluid
that which will ensure uniform distribution without causing (promoting) over distention (swelling)
ideal rate of flow
methods of creating pressure
1. Gravity injector method
2. Hand pump
the gravity injector method is also called the________
consist of a glass bottle, rubber tubing, and a device to suspend the bottle above the point of injection.
When using the gravity injector, pressure is increased ______ pounds, which is approximately _____ for every _______ or elevation above the _____________.
point of injection
28 inches (2.33 feet) above injection creates how many pounds of pressure?
84 inches (7.00 feet) above injection creates how many pounds of pressure?
56 inches (4.66 feet) above injection creates how many pounds of pressure?
Study the different Gravity Scenario Questions...
The percolator is elevated 5 feet above point of injection, how much injection pressure is created? 5 x .43 = 2.15 lbs.
To create 3 pounds of injection pressure how many feet, above the point of injection would the percolator need to be raised? 3 / .43 = 6.97 feet.
consist of a hand operated pump, tubing, and a goose neck arrangement and glass fluid bottle
