Re: perfusion of lungs


There are Carboy lifts designed specifically for 20L carboy safety - to keep people from herniating.  Gravity perfusion is best.

Does anyone who perfuses lungs in their morgue have any suggestions on best / safest / economical methods of doing so?   We are presently perfusing by gravity only from large carboys, but our Path. Technicians have difficulties lifting the containers high and we are concerned for their safety.
Thanks in advance
