“TRICKS OF THE TRADE”
 

This tip is another very useful suggestion from Phil Jeffries, an embalmer from Pennsylvania.  For more information on Phil's interesting embalming background, see the tip "Getting Sufficient Fluid to the Hands."  Thanks again, Phil!  Keep those good tips coming! 

 

A BETTER WAY TO CLOSE A POSTED CASE
 
When you are ready to replace viscera in the thoracic cavity following treatment, don't tie or close the viscera bag . First, settle it into cavity with open end toward the pelvic area. (I double bag.) Then, place end of aspirator hose into bag, holding tight around bag and hose to form a sea; aspirate air out of bag before tying it.  This helps reduce volume of viscera and makes closing easier. It works just like the "food saver" "as seen on TV"!!
