Dilution – approx. 10 oz. arterial fluid per gallon of solution (Using 32 index) Use Dilution Calculator for all other index’s. Mix approximately 3-4 oz. of Arterial conditioner and 3-4 oz. of drainage chemical. RCI Restricted Cervical Injection may be necessary. Many times with larger bodies, the head and face receive the fluid more thoroughly during injection. Because the body is much larger than normal and the amount of time needed to properly inject arterially typically results in over injection of the neck and head/face, resulting in over-injection.
NOTE: Body weight may and usually will cause arteries to collapse. Elevating the pressure may combat this problem. Elevating the shoulders with a body positioning device will help alleviate pressure imposed on to the body parts by the table top. For wider bodies, place a 5’ 3” white PVC pipe in the trough of the table. This will assist with water-flow on the table and help avoid fluid spill-overs.
