The authors have conducted a systematic study in pigs to verify the models of post‐mortem body temperature decrease currently employed in forensic medicine. Twenty‐four hour automatic temperature recordings were performed in four body sites starting 1.25 h after pig killing in an industrial slaughterhouse under typical environmental conditions (19.5–22.5°C). The animals had been randomly selected under a regular manufacturing process. The temperature decrease time plots drawn starting 75 min… Expand
Temperature reduction in internal soft tissues in relation to rectal temperature in dogs in the early post-mortem period
TLDR
The main objective of the study was to compare the temperature reduction in the soft tissues of internal organs with the decrease in rectal temperature in a dog carcass to establish the time of its death. Expand
Post-Mortem Estimation of Time of Death of Dogs Based on Measurements of Kidney Temperature in Comparison with Rectal Temperature
TLDR
Analysis of the dynamics of the decrease in kidney and rectal temperature for both weight groups combined, and the difference in temperature between the kidney and the rectum in the time intervals analysed showed that in the first two hours the difference between kidney and Rectal temperature did not exceed 0.5°C. Expand
Algor mortis pattern in dogs, a guide to estimation of time of death.
TLDR
This work substantiates the use of algor mortis as an adjunct in estimating time of death in dogs by assessing the pattern of temperature drop in six mongrel dogs using commonly available thermometer. Expand
The Potential Use of the Eye Temperature Decrease in Determining the Time of Death in the Early Postmortem Period: Studies in Pigs
TLDR
The experiment revealed the absence of a plateau phase of temperature decrease in eyeball and orbit soft tissues contrary to muscles and rectum, demonstrating that temperature measurements in the eye could become an alternative method of determining the time of death during the initial phase of postmortem cooling. Expand
Studies on time of death estimation in the early post mortem period -- application of a method based on eyeball temperature measurement to human bodies.
TLDR
A verification of the thermodynamic model allowing an estimation of the time of death (TOD) by calculating the post mortem interval (PMI) based on a single eyeball temperature measurement at the death scene with an accuracy of ±1h for a 95% confidence interval is presented. Expand
Does a Draft Really Influence Postmortem Body Cooling? *

TLDR
To evaluate the TOD most precisely, one should first have reliable data on the actual velocity of air in the direct vicinity of the body rather than relying on subjective sensation of the draft and using various unnecessary corrective coefficients for TOD calculation. Expand
The post mortem temperature plateau and its role in the estimation of time of death. A review.
TLDR
The conclusion of this paper is that the appearance of a TPE in postmortem body core temperature decay curves is currently random and cannot be predicted. Expand
Eye temperature measured after death in human bodies as an alternative method of time of death estimation in the early post mortem period. A successive study on new series of cases with exactly known time of death.
TLDR
Thanks to knowledge of the exact TOD and the stable ambient temperature, the current study on 30 new cases allowed the method to be improved by adjusting the mean value of the cooling constant and the initial eye temperature in comparison to recent studies. Expand
First practical applications of eye temperature measurements for estimation of the time of death in casework. Report of three cases.
TLDR
This paper presents first three successive cases of death where at scene measurements of the internal eyeball temperature soon after death allowed to precisely estimate the times of deaths based on this data, which were later confirmed during the police investigation. Expand
Mathematical modeling of the corpse cooling under conditions of varying ambient temperature
Background: The constancy of the ambient temperature is the main condition to correctly determine the time of death by thermometric method. However, in practice, this requirement is met only in casesExpand

Comparison of methods of temperature measurement in swine
TLDR
Equivalence of the methods of temperature measurement in healthy and critically ill swine under clinical intensive care unit (ICU) conditions was insufficient for them to be used interchangeably in the porcine ICU. Expand
Estimation of the time since death in the early post-mortem period
Primary task of medico-legal death time estimation is the reliable estimation of the time since death. Criminal investigations get most efficient if this period of time is communicated to the policeExpand
Estimation of the time since death in the early post-mortem period.
TLDR
Primary task of medico-legal death time estimation is the reliable estimation of the time since death, and the theoretical content of Rainy's publications was more important than that of many publications which were published 100 years later. Expand
Outer ear temperature and time of death.
TLDR
Results show that outer ear temperature measurement is the method which provides the best simplicity/quality ratio and should therefore be proposed for use at the scene when conditions are similar to those of the authors' experiment (within buildings). Expand
Temperature-based death time estimation with only partially known environmental conditions
TLDR
The present study theoretically deduces formulae which are independent of the initial and environmental temperatures and thus proves that the information needed for death time estimation is contained in the rectal temperature data. Expand
Postmortem interval estimation from body temperature data only.
TLDR
The present study was initiated by the Home Office to investigate the extent of the errors which might be encountered in the use of these methods, and to devise a more simple and accurate method, called the time-dependent-z equation, known as the TDZE method. Expand
Influence of preslaughter muscle temperature on muscle metabolism and meat quality in anesthetized pigs of different halothane genotypes.
TLDR
Increases in preslaughter muscle temperature are, in addition to an effect of preslaughter stress conditions, also a causative factor in enhancing ante- and postmortem muscle metabolism in Nn and nn pigs. Expand
Rectal temperature time of death nomogram: sudden change of ambient temperature.
TLDR
Cooling experiments on dummies known as body-like cooling were performed with sudden decrease and increase of ambient temperature in the order of 15 degrees C and no procedure could be found to model the cooling curves mathematically. Expand
