Seminar: "Difficult Cases: Secrets of a Master Embalmer"
From the 2010 ICCFA Annual Convention
In this session, you'll discover practical and readily applicable embalming and cosmetic techniques for difficult cases such as edematous, jaundice and chemically/drug-compromised remains. Through real cases and photographs, you'll learn useful techniques you can apply in your own prep room to handle particularly challenging cases, such as internal and external procedures for reducing edematous conditions of the face and hands.
