Dr. Dipal Arya, *Dr. Krunal Chauhan, Dr. Bhadresh Prajapati, Dr. Kinnari Chauhan

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Formaldehyde is the simplest aldehyde that can be obtained from its cyclic trimertrioxane and the polymer paraformaldehyde. From the 1990’s on, a massive amount of research regarding health effects and exposure hazards of formaldehyde has been conducted. Very little, if any, of this research focuses on embalming. Mathodology: This study aims at reducing the toxic effects caused by the formaldehyde fumes yet maintaining good preservation of the cadaver, as is required for dissection purposes. This study is conducted in Dept. of Anatomy in one of the medical college of Surat. however, it affects Medical students, teachers & laboratory technicians who are exposed to formaldehyde fumes on regular basis during the daily dissection schedules and during Embalming procedure so In this study, the various symptoms caused by the toxic effects of the embalming fluid on the medical students & employees were evaluated and A questionnaire was framed containing list of symptoms that arose due to exposure to formaldehyde fumes and they are recorded. Observation: The most common feelings and symptoms among studied on first exposure to formalin include general discomfort 18 (81%), eye irritation/itching 11 (48%) and nasal irritation/itching 11(50). Conclusion: So far, this study demonstrates the irritating and sensitizing actions of formalin on respondents, the concentration of formalin for cadaver dissection should be kept minimal and controlled for adaptability by student. Again the exposure time to formalin should be planned and integrated in the dissection schedule.
