Tissue Gas Chemical and Arterial Fluid

Saturol solves a problem confronting embalmers today, that of
successfully embalming cases where tissue gas is present. A considerable
number of bodies are found to have this condition. Tissue gas
results in more embalming failures than any other condition.

Tissue gas is found in many cases of drowning, especially where
the body has been in the water several days; cases with gangrenous
tissue; and in sudden death and suicide cases where embalming is
often delayed.

Tissue gas is caused by the welchii bacteria. The pressure of the
gas prevents adequate penetration of regular arterial fluids. To successfully
embalm these cases in the past, extreme measures have
been necessary, and in the vast majority of such cases the caskets
were closed. Most embalmers resort to hypodermic injection of such
cases, but other chemicals used have not been designed for the job.

Saturol does just what its name implies. It saturates the tissue with a quick acting and deep penetrating diffusing chemical, containing powerful preservatives,
and containing a proven sanitizer against the welchii bacteria.
