An evaluation of analyzed data of hemoglobin derivatives by CO-Oximeter in medico-legal autopsy.


We examined blood samples of autopsy cases by a CO-Oximeter and evaluated the data for investigation of death including asphyxia. When sampling methods were examined, oxyhemoglobin (O2-Hb) concentrations increased, and reduced hemoglobin (R-Hb) concentrations decreased, by the contact of the blood with the air, while carboxyhemoglobin (CO-Hb) and… (More)
