a postmortem examination of the organs and tissues of a body to determine cause of death or pathological condition; a necropsy
destructive to bacteria
agent that has the ability to inhibit or tetard bacterial growth. No destruction of viability of the microorganism is implied.
resins ccombined with oil; a fragrant, resinous, oily exudate from various trees and plants.
the arm pit
base of the axillary space

bischloromethyl ether/ BCME
biological agent or condition that constitutes a hazard to humans
irreversible somatic death
a chemical which lightens a skin discoloration
tissue that circulates through the vascular system and is composed of approximately 22%solids and 78% water
discolorations resulting from changes in blood composition, content, or location, either intravascularly or extravascularly
the pressure exerted by the blood in the living body on the arterial wall measured in millimeters of mercury
circulatory network composed of the heart, arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, and veins

the separation and pushing aside of the superfvicial 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.
acute, deep-seated inflammation in the skin which usually begins as a subbcutaneous swelling in a hair follicle.
individual stitch knotted a the tissue edge; maybe applied prior to embalming to align tissues
bridge suture (temporary interrupted suture)
vestibule of the oral cavity; the space between the lips, gums, and teeth
self-contained, soft rubber and manual pump designed to create pressure to deliver fluid as it passes through one-way valves located within the bulb. It is used only to deliver fluids; it cannot be used for aspiration

the fromation of cavities in an organ or tissue; frequently seen in some forms of tuberculosis
direct tretment, other than vascular (arterial) injection, of the contents of the body cavitgies and the lumina of the hollow viscera; usually accomplished by aspiration and injection.
