Example text

Accident – Accidental deaths arise from generally unforeseen events that typically involve some form of external factor. Most common are traumatic events resulting in blunt force damage, asphyxia, drowning, and fire-related injuries. Toxin exposure is another relatively common type of accidental type of death that includes fatalities related to recreational drug abuse. Suicide – Suicide refers to a death that results from the intentional action of an individual to lethally harm him or herself. In uncomplicated cases the victim’s actions are obvious, with a clearly stated intent and the presence of one or more suicide notes.

Cell types can then be classified based on their shape, size, character, location, arrangement with other cells, and various staining characteristics. Certain cell types together in a particular arrangement with one another form tissues, such as adipose tissue (fat), bone, or muscle. ’’ Examples include the liver, spleen, or lungs. Organs and related tissues are also classified according to systems; examples include the cardiovascular system that is composed of the heart and blood vessels, the respiratory system that consists of the lungs and attached airways, and the genitourinary system that includes the kidneys, bladder, and genitalia.

Thus, whenever a death is encountered, it is absolutely necessary to ensure the positive identity of the decedent (see chapter ‘‘> Identification of Human Remains’’). Pronouncing life extinct is usually uncomplicated, although in hospital and some other settings certain factors may confuse the issue. At scenes, an absence of pulse (heartbeat) and respirations (breathing) are the usual findings that suggest that death has occurred. However, if there are any concerns at all that this may not be the case urgent resuscitation is required.
