Medicvent is working to improve air quality relating to autopsy procedures. It is a distinct problem for many working in this environment, where particle extraction is not working optimally, or is missing entirely. The distribution of particles (solid particles and liquid splashes) as well as bad-smelling bone chips which may occur when during cranial opening are a problem. These particles are also a potential source of contamination.
Based on common experience from several different branches, we know currently that extractors should be fully integrated work tools, to obtain as close and good result as possible.


Advantages with Patovac;
– 98% evacuation of loose particles
– Integrated extractor in work tooling
– Sterile filter that separates all particles
– Tubes are autoclavable
– Easy to clean
– Can be provided with a rotary saw or oscillating saw
– Simple mobile or stationary installation


In studies conducted by the technical department of the Work Environmental Institute in Umeå, results show that Patovac decreases dust content with 98%, which signifies that emission of particles increases times 50 if Patovac is not used.

The need to embalm bodies for sanitary purposes is increasing.

This is done by use of formaldehyde, which can cause allergies and is considered to induce forms of cancer. Formaldehyde is a risk in the working environment! (Source Svd 20091029)

Medicvent is actively working to improve conditions in the embalming working environment for staff members. Medicvent offers a suction feature for embalming procedures that may be mounted on the embalming nozzle, which insures that the suction point is as close to the source of potential leakage as possible. It efficiently captures both fluids and fluid vapors.

Balsavac consists of a stainless-steel pressure vessel on wheels which is filled with embalming fluid which can be pumped with pressurized air, with pressure measurements provided on a display. An appropriate filling pressure can be adjusted with a stepless adjustable pressure reduction. Pressure can be adjusted throughout the working procedure and be applied to the nature of the body, to avoid unnecessary leakage.
