We recommend Leak Guard be used with the last gallon or two of diluted arterial fluid.
Depending upon the degree of leakage protection required, add 5 to 10 ounces of Leak Guard to each gallon of remaining diluted fluid. Be sure to mix thoroughly.
Cases displaying Edema: For Low to Moderate Edema use 8-10 ounces per gallon as a co-injection in the last gallon or two of
diluted arterial solution using open drainage technique.
For Moderate to Severe Edema may require 12-16 ounces of Leak Guard per gallon of diluted
For optimal disinfection 4 to 6 ounces of Water/Clot Guard could be added with the Leak Guard. Injection is best at a low pressure and modest flow rate using a pulsator. As each case will vary according to the condition of the body, the above recommendations can be altered as professional judgment dictates.
Leak Guard can also be used to enhance the firming action of cavity fluids and autopsy compounds. It is compatible with fluids containing less than 20% alcohols.
Leak Guard may also be used as an effective pore closer on skin donor cases at 8-10 ounces per gallon in the last gallon of diluted arterial solution using intermittent drainage technique.
