A Study of Problems Faced During Embalming an Obese Cadaver

Dr Girish V. Patil, Dr Shishirkumar

Embalmed cadavers are used in department of Anatomy for the teaching of structures of human body in dissection practical (Johnson JH 2002). Embalming is a process by which dead bodies are preserved by injecting an embalming solution in to the dead body which prevents the process of decomposition of the tissues and also prevents the spread of infections carried by the unembalmed bodies. It also helps to maintain the sanitation. Donated dead bodies for the research purpose in medical colleges are obese majority of times. For the same reason the embalmer should know the problems faced during the embalming of an obese cadaver. While embalming a obese cadaver we faced 100 % difficulty in transportation of cadaver to embalming room; in observing superficial vein dilatation as embalming fluid pass through them; in knowing hardening of limb muscles at the end of embalming procedure and in knowing increase in the girth of abdomen; all are the signs to know the successive embalming progress (M.L. Ajmani 1998).
