Flashcards in Chemistry Powerpoint Deck (105)
Group of chemicals used in addition to vascular (arterial) and cavity embalming fluids; includes but is not limited to hardening compounds, preservative powders, sealing agents, mold preventative agents, and pack application agents; Not injected chemically. ex- surface pack.
Chemicals added to the embalming solution to deal with varying demands predicated upon the type of embalming, the environment and the embalming fluid to be used; Comes pre-mixed in bottle.
Fluid injected for purposes other than preservation and disinfection; Generally fall into one of three categories: pre-injection, co-injection, and humectants or restorative fluids; Separate bottles.
A substance that yields hydrogen or hydronium ions in a/an water (aqueous) solution.
A substance that donates a proton.
A substance that accepts a pair of electrons.
Dyes which aid in restoring a life-like surface pigmentation to a body and also stain the body tissue cells.
Active Dyes/Staining Dyes/Cosmetic Dyes
Natural or synthetic that is used to impart a color to another material.
Are used to distinguish the difference between various chemicals; normally blue; found in cavity fluid.
A wax-like material produced by saponification of body fat in a body buried in alkaline soil.
The reaction between a fat and a strong base to produce glycerol and the salt of a fatty acid (soap).
Intravascular: the increase of viscosity of blood brought about by the clumping of particulate formed elements in the blood vessels (Congealing); General
The process of converting soluble protein to insoluble protein by heating or by contact with a chemical such as an alcohol or an aldehyde (Congealing); Specific
A protein found throughout the body and is highly susceptible to decomposition (Soluble)
Proteins that have been Cross-Linked by preservatives to become highly unsusceptible to decomposition (Insoluble).
A saturated hydrocarbon; a hydrocarbon that has no carbon - carbon multiple bonds; formerly called the paraffin series.
ALKANE aka Saturated Hydrocarbons.
A hydrocarbon containing a double bond.
A hydrocarbon containing a triple bond.
Is less dangerous than beta radiation and Gamma Radiation.
Is more dangerous than alpha radiation but less dangerous than gamma rays.
Is more dangerous than Beta Radiation or Alpha Radiation; a type of electromagnetic radiation
A building up process.
Breaking down process.
The study of all the enzymatically controlled reactions in a living cell.
Body temperature rises after death and peaks.
Body temperature drops and cools to 98.5 degrees
What is the body's temperature at life?
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 (Can be pre-injection and or co-injection).
injected with the arterial fluid
