In 49 cases the face was so badly charred that it was not possible to judge whether hemorrhage had occurred in the eyelids and/or conjunctivae. Such blood extravasation was seen in 14 of the remaining 85 cases, taking the form of petechiae in some cases and in others the form associated with more extensive extravasation, in some cases hemolytic. No other features known to cause such… Expand

Problems associated with the diagnosis of vitality in burned bodies.
The most important signs of vitality in burned bodies are soot deposits in the respiratory tract, the esophagus and the stomach as well as elevated CO-Hb values in the blood. But these findings showExpand
Morphological Findings in Burned Bodies
Morphological findings in burned bodies may cover a broad spectrum and can range from minor, local, superficial burns of the skin to calcined skeletal remains without any soft tissue left, with fluent transitions between intravital, perimortal, and postmortem changes. Expand
Injury: Burns, Scalds, and Chemical
The purpose of the forensic investigation of deaths related to heat exposure is to determine the manner and cause of death, the vitality of the findings, and the identity of the victim. The basis ofExpand


Zur lokalen Vitalreaktion nach Angriff gegen den Hals
Findings can support the assumption of the amount of hemorrhaging in deaths in which the survival time was inadequate for a leukocyte emigration, as well as 55 comparative cases (natural, violent death) with regard to vital changes from the hemorrhaging aspect. Expand

Fire Deaths in the Glasgow Area: I General Considerations and Pathology
The old and young members of the community were shown to be particularly vulnerable, male and female casualties were approximately equal in number and the peak periods for fire deaths were at weekends and in the winter months. Expand
The causes of death in fire victims.
The characteristic biphasic distribution of carboxyhemoglobin in fire victims together with other observations suggest that the principal causes of death are carbon monoxide followed by carbon dioxide poisoning and/or oxygen deficiency, while the influence of heat is considered to be of minor importance.

Accidental fire deaths
Accidental fire deaths that occurred in Metropolitan Dade County, encompassing Miami, Fla., USA, during the years from 1979 until 1983 were studied and the age, race, sex, cause of death of the victim along with the blood alcohol content at autopsy, toxicologic analysis, location of the fire, and how the fire started were studied.

Heat injuries to the respiratory system
The pathological findings in the respiratory passages and the lung are dealt with, describing the topographical extent of direct thermal injury and the temporal course of tissue reactions in cases of instantaneous death coagulation necrosis of the tracheal and bronchial wall was found to extend to alveolar ducts in central parts of the lung.

Effect on mortality of inhalation injury.
The incidence of and mortality from inhalation injury both rose with increasing burn area and also rose with advancing age; mortality was lowest in the 5- to 14-year old age group and highest in those more than 59 years of age. Expand
