Examination Of Persons Found Dead





When a medical man is called to a case of sudden death, he should
carefully note anything likely to throw any light on the cause of death.
He should notice the place where the body was found, the position and
attitude of the body, the soil or surface on which the body lies, the
position of surrounding objects, and the condition of the clothes. He
should also notice if there are any signs of a struggle having taken
place, if the hands are clenched, if the face is distorted, if there has
been foaming at the mouth, and if urine or fŠces have been passed
involuntarily. Urine may be drawn off with a catheter and tested for
albumin and sugar.

If required to make a post-mortem examination, every cavity and
important organ of the body must be carefully and minutely examined, the
seat of injury being inspected first.
