When doing cavity embalming this is to prevent bacteria that can spread threw the body. There can fluids left in the body such as urine inside the organs. This will start with chocking fluids out of the internal organs.They will use a thoracic cavity which is a a surgical instrument with a three-sided cutting point enclosed in a tube, used for withdrawing fluid from a body cavity.This will enter the torso and go into the stomach and blatter, large intestines and lungs.
