Embalming Tips

`When embalming an infant, there are many factors to consider, including the proper pressure, flow rate, fluid index and incision site. The location of the incision is very important for many reasons. One reasons is that the incisionís location will have a direct effect on the distribution of the fluid. Also, more often than not, parents will likely want to hold and touch their infant. For this reason, we need to conceal and keep the incision to a minimum. The carotid arteries should be avoided at all cost. The femoral arteries can be used, but the distribution can be questionable.’
