A state in southeastern Australia. Its capital is Sydney. It was discovered by Captain Cook in 1770 and first settled at Botany Bay by marines and convicts in 1788. It was named by Captain Cook who thought its coastline resembled that of South Wales. (From Webster's New Geographical Dictionary, 1988, p840 & Room, Brewer's Dictionary of Names, 1992, p377)
A highly reactive aldehyde gas formed by oxidation or incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons. In solution, it has a wide range of uses: in the manufacture of resins and textiles, as a disinfectant, and as a laboratory fixative or preservative. Formaldehyde solution (formalin) is considered a hazardous compound, and its vapor toxic. (From Reynolds, Martindale The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p717)

In vitro reaction of formaldehyde with fenfluramine: conversion to N-methyl fenfluramine. (1/19)Embalming is common, and it can create problems for the forensic scientist if a drug has been the cause death and this drug is also reactive toward the embalming fluid. Previous studies have focused on the tricyclic amines nortriptyline and desipramine. In the presence of formaldehyde, a typical component of embalming fluid, either of these two compounds can be rapidly converted to their methylated derivatives amitriptyline and imipramine, respectively. We have begun a larger project designed to determine the reactivity and reactions of a wide range of drugs with formaldehyde. We report here our results from fenfluramine, which, like the tricyclic amines, is reactive towards formaldehyde and is converted into its N-methyl derivative. The rate of conversion is dependent upon pH and formaldehyde concentration. Up to 100% conversion in 24 h was observed. In addition, we have also devised a simplified procedure for monitoring this process that may be useful for others working in this area. Finally, we note that the reactions of fenfluramine studied here and of amines in general with formaldehyde need to be considered when performing postmortem/postembalming forensic analysis. (+info)
In vitro reaction of barbiturates with formaldehyde. (2/19)Barbiturates are widely used as sedatives, hypnotics, and antiepileptics, and, when coupled with their narrow therapeutic index, the probability that their use will result in accidental or intentional death is significant. When barbiturates are implicated in a murder or suicide, analysis for their presence is often required. Under certain conditions, barbiturates are quite stable, but conditions found in vivo immediately after death or after embalming may promote barbiturate decomposition. If extensive decomposition occurs, analysis for them may be difficult or impossible. Here, the stability of three representative barbiturates, under conditions that model those likely to prevail in vivo shortly after death and after embalming, have been studied. Solutions of phenobarbital were found to slowly decompose in water over the pH range of approximately 3.5 to 9.5. More rapid decomposition occurred at higher pH, and 2-phenylbutyric acid was the main decomposition product. Formaldehyde (5-20%) accelerated the decomposition rate 3-10-fold such that phenobarbital decomposition could be complete after 30 days. In contrast, pentobarbital decomposed roughly 10 times more slowly and secobarbital did not detectably decompose under any of the conditions studied. Thus, certain barbiturates may partially or completely decompose in vivo after death, especially after embalming, and thus analysis for them may lead to false negatives. However, this work shows that analysis for the parent barbiturate or its predicted decomposition product may provide data that will reduce the likelihood of false negatives. (+info)
MR imaging visualization of the cerebral microvasculature: a comparison of live and postmortem studies at 8 T. (3/19)SUMMARY: In this study, we compared 8-T gradient-echo MR images of the microvasculature in the live human brain with images of the unembalmed and embalmed postmortem brain. Small vessels were well visualized in the live brain and even better seen in the unembalmed postmortem brain, but they could not be visualized in the embalmed postmortem brain. These findings are important for direct comparisons of the microvasculature on 8-T MR images and on histologic sections. (+info)
Applied anatomy of the superior vena cava-the carina as a landmark to guide central venous catheter placement. (4/19)BACKGROUND: Cardiac tamponade is a serious complication of central venous catheter (CVC) insertion. Current guidelines strongly advise that the CVC tip should be located in the superior vena cava (SVC) and outside the pericardial sac. This may be difficult to verify as the exact location of the pericardium cannot be seen on a normal chest x-ray. The carina is an alternative radiographic marker for correct CVC placement, suggested on the basis of studies of embalmed cadavers. METHODS: We set out to confirm this radiographic landmark in 39 fresh cadavers (age 58.4 (3.4) (mean and SE) yr) and to compare the results with those from ethanol-formalin-fixed cadavers. RESULTS: We found that the carina was 0.8 (0.05) cm above the pericardial sac as it transverses the SVC. In no case was the carina inferior to the pericardial reflection and our study confirmed the previous findings. All the measured distances were significantly greater in fresh cadavers. CONCLUSIONS: We confirm that the carina is a reliable, simple anatomical landmark that can be identified in vivo for the correct placement of CVCs outside the boundaries of the pericardial sac.

Conversion of methamphetamine to N-methyl-methamphetamine in formalin solutions. (5/19)Embalming is common, and yet it can create problems for the forensic scientist if a drug has been the cause of death and if this drug is also reactive toward the embalming fluid. Previous studies have focused on the amines such as nortriptyline, desipramine, and fenfluramine. In the presence of formalin, a typical component of embalming fluid, these compounds can be rapidly converted to their methylated derivatives amitriptyline, imipramine, and N-methyl-fenfluramine, respectively. We have begun a larger project designed to determine the reactivity and reactions of a wide range of drugs with formalin and have extended it to amphetamines. We report here our results from methamphetamine, which is converted into its N-methyl derivative in the presence of formalin. The rate of conversion is dependent upon pH and formalin concentration with the greatest conversion occurring under basic conditions and the highest formalin concentration. Up to 100% conversion in 24 h was observed under certain conditions. When studied in human tissue exposed to methamphetamine and treated with formalin, again, conversion to N-methyl-methamphetamine was readily apparent as early as 30 min after exposure to formalin. Finally, we note that the reactions of methamphetamine with formalin studied here are probably general and should be considered when performing postmortem/postembalming forensic analysis. (+info)
Methylation of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine in formalin-fixed human liver tissue. (6/19)3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA or ecstasy) is a commonly consumed recreational drug. As is the case with most secondary amines, MDMA reacts with formaldehyde under acidic conditions to form tertiary amines. This reaction is likely to occur in formalin-fixed tissue. In formalin solutions, MDMA is methylated producing 3,4-methylenedioxy-N,N-dimethylamphetamine (MDDA). MDDA standard was synthesized by treating methylenedioxyamphetamine HCl in formaldehyde solution. Structure confirmation was by electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (MS) and MS-MS. Randomly chosen human liver pieces (100-200 mg) were injected with 2 microg of MDMA HCl. The liver pieces in centrifuge tubes were covered with 200 microL of formalin solution (20% v/v), held at room temperature for 24 h, and then homogenized. The resulting suspension was sonicated for 5 min and then centrifuged. Controls consisted of substitution of 200 microL of water in place of formalin solution. Supernatant aliquots (10 mciroL) were added to 500 microL of 0.1% formic acid in acetonitrile for MS analysis. Positive ion electrospray spectra recorded in MS, MS2, and MS3 modes were used to confirm the presence of methylated MDMA. Liver tissue containing added MDMA HCl but not treated with formalin did not show a detectable level of methylated MDMA. (+info)
Conversion of sertraline to N-methyl sertraline in embalming fluid: a forensic implication. (7/19)Zoloft (sertraline hydrochloride) is one of the antidepressant medications used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social anxiety disorder. The practice of embalming a cadaver is common, yet it may create problems for forensic toxicologists if the case was not previously suspected to involve drug overdose. According to the Eschweiler-Clarke reaction, drugs containing a secondary amine group react with formaldehyde to give N-methyl derivatives. Sertraline has a secondary amine group; therefore, we predicted that it may react with formalin to give N-methyl derivatives. The stability of sertraline in formalin solution was studied at three different concentrations (5%, 10%, and 20%) and at three different pHs (3.0, 7.0, and 9.5) for a period of 30 days. Setraline and its degraded products were extracted by liquid-liquid extraction using chloroform, and the concentrated extracts were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry using electron impact ionization mode. The rate of conversion is rapid at higher pH. Sertraline was totally converted to the N-methyl derivative after 30 days in 10% and 20% formalin solutions at neutral and basic conditions. Therefore, forensic toxicologists should be cautious when performing a death investigation if formalin solution is the only sample available for analysis. This work shows that analysis for parent drug or its N-methyl derivative may provide data that will reduce the likelihood of false negatives. (+info)
Stability study of fluoxetine in formalin-fixed liver tissue. (8/19)In the present work, we report conversion of fluoxetine (Prozac), a novel anti depressant to N-methyl fluoxetine in formalin fixed liver tissue. Earlier studies indicate that drugs containing secondary amino group will react with formalin to form corresponding N-methyl derivatives. Even though embalming cadavers is common, it may create problems for forensic toxicologists if a case was not previously suspected. In formalin solutions, fluoxetine is methylated producing N-methyl fluoxetine. N-Methyl fluoxetine standard was synthesized by treating fluoxetine in formaldehyde solution. The structure confirmed by (1)HNMR and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry in electron impact ionization mode. Randomly chosen rat liver pieces (200-250 mg) were injected with 100 microg of Fluoxetine. The liver pieces were covered with three different concentrations of formalin, 5%, 10%, and 20%, and at three different pHs, 3.0, 7.0, and 9.5. The reaction was studied for a total period of 30 days, and the reaction products were monitored on days 0, 4, 14, and 30 days. The study indicates that the rate of conversion of fluoxetine to its N-methyl derivative increased with increase in the concentration of formalin and pH of the solution. The conversion is rapid at higher pH values. Fluoxetine was totally converted to its N-methyl derivatives after 30 days in 20% formalin at pH 9.5. Therefore, analysis for parent drug or its N-methyl derivative in embalmed tissues may provide data that will reduce the likelihood of false negatives. (+info)

Print formatted version of: A Good Embalmer by Clark Ashton Smith
It is not the function of this story to record in detail, or even in rough outline, the lives of two country undertakers.. For many years after the discussion related above, Turple and Udley pursued the somewhat funereal tenor of their ways. In the face of their perennial disputation, half-humorous, half-contemptuous on one side and wholly acrimonious on the other, it would have been difficult to determine the exact degree of brotherly love which existed between them. Turple continued to deride his confreres professional capacities and opinions; and Udley never failed to resent the derision. With slight variations, their quotidian quarrel was repeated a thousand times.. The situation was modified only by the admission of a third and younger partner, one Thomas Agdale, into the firm. Agdale, who was comparatively inexperienced, and was also mild-tempered, became the butt of both his seniors; and, in especial, of Udley, who thus succeeded in transferring to another victim some of the scorn and ...

No one lives forever - nor do they last forever. At least not without a lot of tuneups.. As much as it may seem like the bodies of famous world leaders such as Vladimir Ilyich Lenin and Mao Zedong have been preserved for all eternity, their enduring physical presence is simply an illusion aided by science.. Only the Venezuelan officials who have promised to preserve Hugo Chavez and display his body for eternity inside a glass tomb know exactly how theyre going to do it.. But if they were to follow procedures that are used in the United States, the technique might be rather simple: repeat embalming.. The first thing to remember about embalming as we do it in the U.S. is that it is designed to delay the natural deterioration of the body; its not forever, said Vernie Fountain, a licensed embalmer and owner and founder of the Fountain National Academy of Professional Embalming Skills in Springfield, Missouri..

Muscle mass - Biology-Online
To increase strength and muscle mass one should do intensive training (anaerobic) using heavy weights and fewer reps. For example, biceps training should begin with two warm up sets with light weight (circulation), followed by five or six sets of five reps using a weight you can only curl a max of six times (standing curl bar). Use a rest interval of 90 to 120 seconds between sets. Follow the standing curl sets with seated (back supported) dumbell curls, three sets of 6 to 8 reps. Use a weight light enough that you can do them strictly (no cheating i.e. swinging and leaning). Two heavy curl days a week is enough. DONT over train. You can apply this techinque to other lifts, bench, squat, shruggs, press, triceps and pull downs, and press downs. When working biceps dont forget to finish off with reverse curls to exercise the brachialis muscle ...

New study sheds light on meat, mummies in ancient tombs
So youve gone through all the trouble of mummifying a loved one. Youve hired embalmers to remove her organs, treat her body with a precise mixture of oils and balms, and carefully wrap her in bandages. Youve spared no expense on a lavish tomb, beautifully decorated and stuffed with riches. Youve even mummified her pets, all to make sure she will fully enjoy her afterlife. Theres just one last question: What is your beloved mummy going to eat for the rest of eternity?For some ancient Egyptians, the answer included meat.
Worlds Best Preserved Mummy - Rosalia - Has Organs Preserved Intact
Rosalia was painstakingly mummified by a local doctor Alfredo Salafia who pioneered new methods of embalming by experimenting on unclaimed corpses in the islands morgues.. He didnt have a formal education or training in embalming but preserving human and animal bodies was his passion, says Dr Dario. He tried very hard from the beginning until he made it and created and devised a method of preservation which was successful,. Dr Dario and his team worked hard to establish exactly what Salafias method was by analysing minute samples of Rosilias skin.. I think the main contribution of Salafia was the fact that he used some new chemicals in embalming such as formaldehyde. Formaldehyde was invented / synthesized some decades before but he was one of the very first embalmers who actually used it for preserving human bodies.. Formaldehyde dehydrates the body and hardens the tissues. To counteract this Salafias formula mixed it with a cocktail of other chemicals - including glycerine and ...

The procedure was very simple, consisting of a single point injection without any drainage or cavity treatment. The concoction worked perfectly. Formalin killed bacteria, glycerin kept her body from overdrying, salicylic acid killed fungi, while zinc salts basically petrified Rosalia s body. The new glass case will help preserve Rosalia for many more years. It was designed to block any bacteria or fungi. Thanks to a special film, it also protects the body from the effects of light, Piombino-Mascali said.. Her embalmer was Professor Alfredo Salafia, an Italian chemist who discovered a way to preserve bodies using a special formula. Starting first with animals then people, Salafia perfected his process. Eventually, he embalmed his own father.. Once word spread about his special embalming abilities, the relatives of many famous people began to contact him. These included Francisco Crispi (Italian premier, whose poorly preserved body was re-constituted by Salafia in 1905) and Cardinal Michaelangelo ...

Tales of Ancient Egypt: August 2010
There are two elements to mummification, the physical process and the religious symbolism. The physical process was a secretive art. Our knowledge is derived from reverse engineering of the mummies that survived. Information has been derived from the experiment in modern mummification conducted by Robert Brier. The recent discovery by Otto Schaden of KV63, the embalmers cache, has also helped to shed light on the subject. It is thought that shortly after death the body was taken to a place of purification (ibw), probably a tent on hill where the wind would blow the smell away. The brain was liquefied by using a hook inserted through the nostrils and rotated like a whisk. The body was turned upside down and the brain matter drained out and discarded. The cranium was cleaned by inserting strips of linen through the nasal cavity and swabbing the inside of the cranium. The body was washed in a natron solution. Natron is a naturally occurring salt of sodium carbonate and sodium bi-carbonate. A ...
Brachialis muscle activity can be assessed with surface electromyography - RERO DOC
The brachialis muscle (BR) represents an important elbow flexor and its activity has so far mainly been measured with intramuscular electromyography (EMG). The aim of this study was to examine whether the activity of the BR can be assessed with surface EMG without interference from the biceps brachii (BB). With eight subjects we measured surface EMG of the arm flexor synergists, BR, BB, and brachioradialis (BRR) during two isometric voluntary contraction types: (1) pure elbow flexion and (2) elbow flexion with a superimposed forearm supination. Since the BR and BB have a distinct biomechanical function, an individual activity of the BR can be expected for the second contraction type, if the BR can be assessed independently from the BB. The correlation coefficients between EMG amplitudes and flexion force (supination torque) were determined. During pure flexion the activities of all synergists were similarly correlated with the flexion force (r = 0.96 ± 0.02). During flexion + supination the activity of
Skull of the Virtual Mummy
The skull of the deceased woman is very well preserved. However, some teeth were loosened and separated from the jaw during the embalmment. Four incisors and a molar in the lower jaw and two incisors in the upper jaw are missing. The missing teeth, though, were all found in the oral cavity.. Another damaged part is found in the area of the ethmoid bone. This bone plate was pierced with a mummification hook by the embalmers when they were removing the brain through the nose..

Suspected ghoul in medical coma - Indicted mortician may suffer brain injury • TimesLedger
It appears that fate may have stepped in to judge the former owner of Daniel George Funeral Home. Joseph Nicelli, considered a major player in the mortician body-plundering scandal to rock Brooklyn last year, was reportedly in a medically-induced coma late last week after suffering serious injuries in a fall, his lawyers announced. Out on bail, Nicelli was working at a construction site in New Jersey when he reportedly fell from the roof of the building he was working on. The fall, which is being considered accidental, took place on January 4, officials said. Richard Medina, Nicelli s attorney, informed Kings County prosecutors about his client s medical condition last Thursday, claiming that doctors said that the former embalmer may be too incapacitated to help with his own defense. The doctor said its very, very likely there will be brain damage, Medina told reporters. They just dont know the extent. Officials from the Kings County District Attorney s office wouldn t comment on the news, ...

Effects of Formaldehyde on DNA | URSCA Proceedings
Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, which damages and mutates DNA in the cells of mammals. Acute and chronic exposure to formaldehyde may occur in both occupational settings (e.g., embalmers) and from several household products (e.g., insulation, particle boards, and carpeting). Upon human exposure to formaldehyde, several DNA adducts may be formed, including those with the amino groups of guanine (denoted CH2OH-N2-G), cytosine (CH2OH-N4-C), and adenine (CH2OH-N6-A). Each of these adducts consists of a methoxy moiety linked to the exocyclic amino group of the respective DNA nucleobase. The methoxy moiety can interfere with several noncovalent interactions within a DNA helix, including Watson-Crick hydrogen bonding, Hoogsteen hydrogen bonding, and stacking interactions between neighboring DNA nucleobases. These interactions are essential to the normal function of DNA and their disruption could lead to mutations when DNA is copied, which in turn lead to health effects such as cancer. Although ...

formaldehyde exposure symptoms
This study measured the formaldehyde exposure through ambient and personal air sampling, assessed the symptoms of poor health as well as estimating the health risk among hospital workers. The respiratory system: asthma, bronchitis and pulmonary edema arise. ; Med Pr (1998; 49(6)). Poisoning may also occur when the chemical is being administered directly to a patient as formalin soaked packs for cysts. ; Biomed Environ Sci (Dec 1997; 10(4)). Many studies have been conducted to evaluate the effects of FA during systemic and respiratory exposures in rats. Breathing becomes difficult and blood may appear in sputum. In more severe cases, the symptoms of exposure to formaldehyde can escalate to include chest congestion and tightness, eye infections, bronchitis, and even asthma. Formaldehyde is toxic over a range of doses; chances of exposure and subsequent harmful effects are increased as (room) temperature increases, because of FAs volatility. 1.

FIVE AMAZING HEALTH CONDITIONS
Obesity is increasing in America. According to estimates from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of obese American adults has increased from 12.5 percent of the population in 1991 to 20 percent in 2016. This increase has affected a number of businesses. Like the airline industry, which was warned in May 2013 that passengers were heavier than they used to be, and was asked to adjust weight estimates accordingly, the funeral industry is retooling to make room for ever-larger Americans. While the standard coffin is 61 centimeters wide, coffins are now available up to 124 centimeters in width and suitably reinforced. Vaults, graves, hearses and even the standardized scoop on the front-end loaders that cemeteries use for grave-digging have also had to be increased in size. People are living larger and dying larger, and industries have to adapt to that situation ...

JCI - Impaired SUMOylation of nuclear receptor LRH-1 promotes nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Animal studies. Congenic C57BL/6J LRH-1 WT or LRH-1 K289R (9) as well as C57BL/6J Lrh-1hep-/- and Lrh-1hep+/+ mice (6) were kept under normal housing conditions. For fast-refeeding protocols, 12- to 16-week-old male mice were initially fasted for 24 hours, followed by refeeding for 12 hours (8 pm to 8 am), 6 hours (2 am to 8 am), or 2 hours (6 am to 8 am), and finally sacrificed together at 8 am to avoid confounding effects of the circadian rhythm. To induce a chronic hepatic steatosis, male mice were fed ad libitum with a HFHS diet (TD.08811, Harlan Laboratories) for 17 weeks and sacrificed at 9 am. To study the APR, male mice fed a chow diet received an intraperitoneal injection of either 500 μl PBS or 40 μg LPS dissolved in 500 μl PBS. Mice were sacrificed 2.5 hours after injection and tissues collected.. Subcellular fractionation of liver tissues and Western blotting.

There wasnt much specification regarding the timeline or location, so the below are just the general process that will occur over a long period of time.. Mummification: In particularly dry areas like deserts or mountain peaks, the remains would mummify, much like this creepy fellow. Even with regular decomposition mummification can still occur naturally, so without scavengers and bacteria getting in the way much of the life in dry areas would desiccate and mummify.. Petrifaction: In areas with water, the remains would petrify. Water would leak into the pores of tissue and bone, and minerals within that water will precipitate out and saturate the remains, resulting in a combination of organic and inorganic remains. This process is called permineralization, and is the reason we have dinosaur fossils. Without bacteria, the soft tissue remains would also go through this process and become fossilized. Over time, much of the organic remains would slowly be dissolved by water and replaced by minerals, ...
