  • Missed opportunity to talk about what's done with the organs after a full post (thoracic autopsy)... We line a 5 gallon bucket with a really strong bag, dump the organs in, poke holes in them, dump in cavity fluid and let it soak a while. Then the excess is drained, bag tied up. The cavity is then sometimes dusted with an absorbent powder or sawdust and the bag of organs is put into the cavity with the chest plate (a square section of ribs that were cut out for the autopsy) on top, then sewn back up. A little genericized and simplified, but that's essentially it.
