Color Guard I is a new idea in jaundice treatment. Not just a mask or highly buffered arterial fluid, Color Guard I’s chemicals actually react with bilirubin to change its yellow coloration to a red or rosy tone. The yellow of jaundice can be significantly reduced, especially in the visible areas of the body. However, in cases of “black” or “green” jaundice where the bilirubin/biliverdin has diffused into the tissue, Color Guard I may be ineffective.
Packed 24 bottles per case.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID Use Color Guard I at 8 to 16 ounces per gallon of cool or cold water, depending on the intensity of yellow color present and color development desired. Add 7 to 12 ounces of arterial fluid according to professional preference as Color Guard I has no preservative chemicals and will not firm the body. It is not intended to be used without a preservative-type fluid. Inject using intermittent drainage so that the Color Guard I will be well distributed into all the required areas of the body. Color development will take place over a short period of time. Always be sure to use cool water when using Color Guard I. Use only with a low to moderate index arterial fluid. We highly recommend first trying the fluid on an area of the body that will not be shown. To test the reaction of Color Guard I on a particular body, mix 10cc of Color Guard I with 10cc of arterial fluid and inject into the hip area. A red-pinkish tone should appear after a short time. Once appropriate levels are established for that particular case, the rest of the body can be treated. Be sure to use preservative chemicals in conjunction with Color Guard I.
