Autopsies and death certification in deaths due to blunt trauma: what are we missing? (1/99)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the frequency, body region and severity of injuries missed by the clinical team in patients who die of blunt trauma, and to examine the accuracy of the cause of death as recorded on death certificates. DESIGN: A retrospective review. SETTING: London Health Sciences Centre, London, Ont. PATIENTS: One hundred and eight deaths due to blunt trauma occurring during the period Apr. 1, 1991, to Mar. 31, 1997. Two groups were considered: clinically significant missed injuries were identified by comparing patient charts only (group 1) and more detailed injury lists from the autopsies and charts of the patients (group 2). OUTCOME MEASURES: Chart and autopsy findings. RESULTS: Of the 108 patients, 78 (72%) were male, and they had a median age of 39 years (range from 2 to 90 years). The most common cause of death was neurologic injury (27%), followed by sepsis (17%) and hemorrhage (15%). There was disagreement between the treating physicians and the causes of death listed on the death certificate in 40% of cases and with the coroner in 7% of cases. Seventy-seven clinically significant injuries were missed in 51 (47%) of the 108 patient deaths. Injuries were missed in 29% of inhospital deaths and 100% of emergency department deaths. Abdominal and head injuries accounted for 43% and 34% of the missed injuries, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The information contained on the death certificate can be misleading. Health care planners utilizing this data may draw inaccurate conclusions regarding causes of death, which may have an impact on trauma system development. Missed injuries continue to be a concern in the management of patients with major blunt trauma.  (+info)

What is a natural cause of death? A survey of how coroners in England and Wales approach borderline cases. (2/99)

AIM: Many deaths fall in the "grey" area between those that are clearly natural and those that are unnatural. There are no guidelines to help doctors in dealing with such cases and death certification is often arbitrary and inconsistent. In an attempt to initiate debate on these difficult areas, and with the ultimate aim of achieving national consensus, the views of coroners in England and Wales were sought. METHODS: Sixteen clinical scenarios, with causes of death, were circulated to all coroners in England and Wales. For each case they were asked to provide a verdict, with explanation. The deaths fell into three groups: (1) postoperative, (2) a combination of trauma and natural disease, and (3) infectious disease. RESULTS: Sixty four questionnaires were returned. There was near consensus (> 80% concordance) in only two of the 16 cases. In five, there was no significant agreement between coroners in the verdicts returned ("natural causes" versus "misadventure/accidental"). These included all three cases in which death resulted from a combination of trauma and natural disease (a fall after a grand mal fit; falls resulting in fractures of bones affected by metastatic carcinoma and osteoporosis), bronchopneumonia after hip replacement for osteoarthritis, and new variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The comments made for each case indicate that the variation between coroners in whether or not to hold an inquest, and the verdict arrived at, reflect the lack of a definition for natural causes, together with differences in the personal attitudes of each coroner. CONCLUSIONS: There is considerable variation in the way in which coroners approach these borderline cases, many of which are common in clinical practice. This study indicates a need for discussion, working towards a national consensus on such issues. It highlights the importance of good communication between coroners and medical staff at a local level.  (+info)

Are coroners' necropsies necessary? A prospective study examining whether a "view and grant" system of death certification could be introduced into England and Wales. (3/99)

AIMS: To determine whether the cause of death could be accurately predicted without the need for a necropsy, and thus to consider whether a "view and grant" system of issuing a cause of death could be introduced into England and Wales. METHOD: A one year prospective necropsy study was performed incorporating 568 deaths. Before necropsy, in each case the cause of death was predicted from the available history without examination of the body, and this cause was then compared with the cause of death found at necropsy. RESULTS: The ability of the pathologist involved in the study to predict a cause of death before necropsy, either while in the mortuary or as a paper exercise, was shown to vary between 61% and 74% of cases. After the necropsy, the number of correct predicted causes of death ranged from 39% to 46%. Ischaemic heart disease was found to be the most common and most accurately predicted cause of death. Some natural diseases were frequently misdiagnosed, whereas certain types of unnatural disease were always identified correctly. CONCLUSIONS: This study highlights the advantages and disadvantages of a view and grant system. Although it identifies a potential use of such a system, in some cases such as natural cardiac disease, because of the potentially high diagnostic error rate, the continuation of the present system of postmortem examination as part of the coroner's enquiry is recommended.  (+info)

Improving the National Board of Medical Examiners internal Medicine Subject Exam for use in clerkship evaluation. (4/99)

OBJECTIVE: To provide a consensus opinion on modifying the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Medicine Subject Exam (Shelf) to: 1) reflect the internal medicine clerkship curriculum, developed by the Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) and the Clerkship Directors in Internal Medicine (CDIM); 2) emphasize knowledge important for a clerkship student; and 3) obtain feedback about students' performances on the Shelf. DESIGN: Two-round Delphi technique. PARTICIPANTS: The CDIM Research and Evaluation Committee and CDIM members on NBME Step 2 Committees. MEASUREMENTS: Using 1-5 Likert scales (5 = highest ratings), the group rated test question content for relevance to the SGIM-CDIM Curriculum Guide and importance for clerkship students' knowledge. The Shelf content is organized into 4 physician tasks and into 11 sections that are generally organ system based. Each iteration of the Shelf has 100 questions. Participants indicated a desired distribution of questions by physician task and section, topics critical for inclusion on each exam, and new topics to include. They specified the types of feedback clerkship directors desired on students' performances. Following the first round, participants viewed pooled results prior to submitting their second-round responses. RESULTS: Of 15 individuals contacted, 12 (80%) participated in each round. The desired distribution by physician task was: diagnosis (43), treatment (23), mechanism of disease (20), and health maintenance (15). The sections with the most questions requested were the cardiovascular (17), respiratory (15), and gastroenterology (12) sections. The fewest were requested in aging/ethics (4) and neurology, dermatology, and immunology (5 each). Examples of low-rated content were Wilson's Disease, chancroid and tracheal rupture (all <2.0). Health maintenance in type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease all received 5.0 ratings. Participants desired feedback by: section (4.6) and physician task (3.9), on performances of the entire class (4.0), and for individual students (3.8). CONCLUSION: Clerkship directors identified test content that was relevant to the curricular content and important for clerkship students to know, and they indicated a desired question distribution. They would most like feedback on their students' performance by organ system-based sections for the complete academic year. This collaborative effort could serve as a model for aligning national exams with course goals.  (+info)

Surveillance for anthrax cases associated with contaminated letters, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, 2001. (5/99)

In October 2001, two inhalational anthrax and four cutaneous anthrax cases, resulting from the processing of Bacillus anthracis-containing envelopes at a New Jersey mail facility, were identified. Subsequently, we initiated stimulated passive hospital-based and enhanced passive surveillance for anthrax-compatible syndromes. From October 24 to December 17, 2001, hospitals reported 240,160 visits and 7,109 intensive-care unit admissions in the surveillance area (population 6.7 million persons). Following a change of reporting criteria on November 8, the average of possible inhalational anthrax reports decreased 83% from 18 to 3 per day; the proportion of reports requiring follow-up increased from 37% (105/286) to 41% (47/116). Clinical follow-up was conducted on 214 of 464 possible inhalational anthrax patients and 98 possible cutaneous anthrax patients; 49 had additional laboratory testing. No additional cases were identified. To verify the limited scope of the outbreak, surveillance was essential, though labor-intensive. The flexibility of the system allowed interim evaluation, thus improving surveillance efficiency.  (+info)

Bioterrorism-related anthrax surveillance, Connecticut, September-December, 2001. (6/99)

On November 19, 2001, a case of inhalational anthrax was identified in a 94-year-old Connecticut woman, who later died. We conducted intensive surveillance for additional anthrax cases, which included collecting data from hospitals, emergency departments, private practitioners, death certificates, postal facilities, veterinarians, and the state medical examiner. No additional cases of anthrax were identified. The absence of additional anthrax cases argued against an intentional environmental release of Bacillus anthracis in Connecticut and suggested that, if the source of anthrax had been cross-contaminated mail, the risk for anthrax in this setting was very low. This surveillance system provides a model that can be adapted for use in similar emergency settings.  (+info)

Coverage of work related fatalities in Australia by compensation and occupational health and safety agencies. (7/99)

AIMS: To determine the levels of coverage of work related traumatic deaths by official occupational health and safety (OHS) and compensation agencies in Australia, to allow better understanding and interpretation of officially available statistics. METHODS: The analysis was part of a much larger study of all work related fatalities that occurred in Australia during the four year period 1989 to 1992 inclusive and which was based on information from coroners' files. For the current study, State, Territory, and Commonwealth OHS and compensation agencies were asked to supply unit record information for all deaths identified by the jurisdictions as being due to non-suicide traumatic causes and which were identified by them as being work related, using whatever definitions the agencies were using at the relevant time. This information was matched to cases identified during the main study. RESULTS: The percentage of working deaths not covered by any agency was 34%. Only 35% of working deaths were covered by an OHS agency, while 57% were covered by a compensation agency. The OHS agencies had minimal coverage of work related deaths that occurred on the road (to workers (8%) or commuters (3%)), whereas the compensation system covered these deaths better than those of workers in incidents that occurred in a workplace (65% versus 53%). There was virtually no coverage of bystanders (less than 8%) by either type of agency. There was marked variation in the level of coverage depending on the industry, occupation, and employment status of the workers, and the type of injury event involved in the incident. CONCLUSIONS: When using data from official sources, the significant limitations in coverage identified in this paper need to be taken into account. Future surveillance, arising from a computerised National Coroners Information System, should result in improved coverage of work related traumatic deaths in Australia.  (+info)

Necropsy practice after the "organ retention scandal": requests, performance, and tissue retention. (8/99)

AIMS: After the so called "organ retention scandal" in the UK this study set out to assess the impact on death certification and hospital (consent) necropsies, including the postmortem retention of tissues and organs. METHODS: Data were prospectively gathered over a one year period for all deaths occurring at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, UK to determine the frequencies with which death certificates were completed and necropsies were requested. The seniority of the clinician undertaking these duties was recorded. Pathologists were asked to record the extent of every necropsy during the study period. The type and planned uses of tissues retained were recorded. RESULTS: Death certificates were issued for 88.5% of the 966 deaths for which clinicians completed proformas. Of these, 88.9% were issued by preregistration and senior house officers. Consent was sought for a necropsy in 6.2% of cases (usually by non-consultant staff) and was granted in 43.4% of these. The overall, medicolegal, and hospital necropsy rates were 13.4%, 9.9%, and 3.5%, respectively. Tissues were retained from 55.4% of necropsies for diagnostic purposes, although sampling does not appear to be systematic. CONCLUSIONS: Death certification and seeking consent for a necropsy are frequently delegated to junior clinical staff. This may explain the low standard of death certification reported by others and the low necropsy rate. The decline in the necropsy rate and the low rate of sampling for histological examination highlight the decline of the hospital necropsy and the lack of a systematic approach to tissue sampling.  (+info)

FARMINGTON || The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has been told it will lose its full accreditation and will be placed on a probationary term from the national medical examiners association following reductions in the offices budget and an increase in drug overdoses in the state. A loss of accreditation could reduce the ability of the medical examiners office to assist law enforcement efficiently with homicide investigations, reduce prosecutors ability to bring charges, and affect family members attempting to address insurance concerns or those seeking emotional closure. State Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano, R-North Haven, said in a release that a loss of full accreditation is a result of budget cuts from a Democrat-approved state budget. While Democrat lawmakers claim they want to make Connecticut a bioscience capital, their budget didnt even properly fund a core and basic public health function. According to NAMEs letter, each pathologist performed an average of 276 autopsies in 2010
The new Hong Kong Coroners Ordinance was published in April 1997. It introduced an expanded set of guidelines for reporting deaths to the coroner as well as the threat of criminal proceedings for non- compliance. The Ordinance is due to be implemented in early 1998. The aim of this study is to determine the likely effect of the new law on the relative proportion of coroners and hospital (consent) autopsies. A total of 352 consecutive autopsy cases were reviewed; 170 (48.3%) were referred for coroners autopsies and 182 (51.7%) for hospital autopsies. By applying the criteria of the current ordinance, there should have been 213 (60.5%) coroners autopsies and 139 (39.5%) hospital autopsies-that is, 43 hospital autopsies should have been coroners autopsies. Under the new Coroners Ordinance, there would be 300 (85.2%) coroners autopsies and only 52 (14.8%) hospital autopsies. The new Coroners Ordinance is likely to result in a greater number of requests for coroners autopsies with a ...

By Suzannah Gonzales. (Reuters) - An American student who had been imprisoned in North Korea for 17 months died from lack of oxygen and blood to the brain, an Ohio coroner said on Wednesday.. Otto Warmbiers death on June 19 was due to an unknown injury that occurred more than a year before his death, Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco said at a news conference. We dont know what happened to him and thats the bottom line, Sammarco said. Warmbiers parents could not be reached for comment on the coroners report.. The University of Virginia student was held by North Korea from January 2016 until his release on June 15. Warmbier, 22, was returned to the United States in a coma.. The coroner and a Sept. 11 report by her office cited complications of chronic deficiency of oxygen and blood supply to the brain in Warmbiers death. Only an external examination of the body rather than a full autopsy was conducted at the request of Warmbiers family. North Korea had blamed botulism and the ...

Here, in this large molecular autopsy series of medical examiner/coroner-referred cases of autopsy-negative SUD, we provide molecular evidence implicating a cardiac channelopathy as the pathogenic basis for 35% of SUD cases, including 15% with CPVT1 and now 20% with LQTS susceptibility mutations. In addition, consistent with the known natural history of both CPVT and LQTS, there was a striking gender predilection for the elucidated channelopathies, with CPVT1-associated mutations found predominantly among male decedents, whereas LQTS-associated mutations predominantly involved female decedents (30,31).. Certainly, this study is not a population-based study of SUD. The reasons prompting the request for postmortem mutational analysis for these SUD cases from the 42 medical examiner offices represented herein and not others is unknown. The total number of autopsies performed or autopsies labeled as SUD by the 42 medical examiner offices over this study period is unknown. Nevertheless, the point ...
The Cook County Coroners office in Illinois confirmed at a press conference that the lottery winner who mysteriously died in July was in fact the victim of cyanide poisoning. Urooj Khan, 46, died on July 20 at his home in Chicago, one month after he was announced the winner of a million-dollar jackpot. Khan, who emigrated from India and owned a dry cleaning business, had opted for the $425,000 lump sum cash payment. The medical examiners office initially believed he had died of natural causes. It wasnt until after he was buried that his brother asked the office to conduct further tests. After examining fluid samples, the office found a lethal level of cyanide and Khans death was declared a homicide. Khans body was exhumed on Jan. 18 and the autopsy exam was conducted that day. Adding intrigue to the story is a legal battle among Khans siblings and his widow over his assets. Custody over his teenage daughter from a previous marriage was given to his sister. Last month, his widow, Shabana ...

In a broadly collaborative effort, Pathology faculty Drs. Carl Schmidt, Jeffrey Myers, Kristine Konopka, Paul Lephart, and Teresa Nguyen joined Michigan Medicine faculty from the departments of Epidemiology, Internal Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology, Mathematics and Complex Systems, and the School of Public Health in a study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases entitled SARS-CoV-2 surveillance in decedents in a large, urban medical examiners office.. Nasopharyngeal swabs from 1094 decedents in the Wayne County Medical Examiners office were tested for SARS-CoV-2 and assessed by a COVID-19 checklist. Decedents flagged by the checklist (298) were preferentially tested. A random sample of decedents not flagged by the checklist were also tested (796). This study found that the pattern of positivity among the decedents closely tracked the positivity rate in the surrounding community, or catchment area. They also found that a disproportionate number of Sars-CoV-2-positive decedents were ...
The autopsy report from the County Medical Examiners Office is a valuable source of information for the defense. Please note that the Medical Examiners Office may be called something different in another state. Biological specimens, such as blood and urine, are preserved during the course of an autopsy. Toxicology testing is performed on the specimens. The results of the toxicology tests may show that the was under the influence of some sort of drug or alcohol at the time of the accident.. It should be relatively easy to establish whether the decedent was under the influence of a drug at the time of the accident. The postmortem blood sample will identify the drugs in his or her system at the time of death. Postmortem quantitative analysis of controlled substances in a decedents blood is another topic for another time. The biggest problem that defense attorneys run into when trying to evaluate the culpability of the decedent is the quantitative analysis of ethyl alcohol in the decedents ...

A toxicology report showed Robinson had marijuana in his system and a blood-alcohol level of .211, but neither was a factor in his death, according to the medical examiners office.. A 14-year NFL veteran, Robinson spent six seasons with the Bears from 1998 through 2003. He also played for the Rams, Dolphins, Bengals and Cardinals, last playing in 2010 for Arizona.

Posted on: 2nd June 2016. A lack of available specialist neurologists at Whipps Cross University Hospital in Waltham Forest creates the risk of future patient deaths a London coroner has warned. He has also raised concerns about periods where there are no on call specialists available at the hospital and long waiting times for outpatient consultations.. A Prevention of Future Deaths report by Assistant Coroner for Inner London North, Richard Brittain has been sent to Barts NHS Trust who is responsible for Whipps Cross. In the report, the coroner gives the Trust until 17 June to respond to his concerns by outlining what action it has taken or will take, along with a timetable.. The report follows the inquest in April into the death of 51-year old mother of four from Chingford, Marina Fagan, who died from a rare neurological condition, Posterior Reversable Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES) that went undiagnosed for 13 days, despite numerous consultations and trips to hospital.. The inquest, held at ...
In England and Wales, all inquests were once conducted with a jury. They acted somewhat like a grand jury, determining whether a person should be committed to trial in connection to a death. Such a jury was made up of up to twenty-three men, and required the votes of twelve to render a decision. Similar to a grand jury, a coroners jury merely accused, it did not convict.. Since 1927, coroners juries have rarely been used in England. Under the Coroners Act 1988,[7] a jury is only required to be convened in cases where the death occurred in prison, police custody, or in circumstances which may affect public health or safety. The coroner can actually choose to convene a jury in any investigation, but in practice this is rare. The qualifications to sit on a coroners jury are the same as those to sit on a jury in Crown Court, the High Court, and the county courts.[8]. Additionally, a coroners jury only determines cause of death, its ruling does not commit a person to trial. While grand juries, ...
Colorado law (CRS 30-10-606) provides the authority for the CORONERS OFFICE to perform an autopsy as part of an investigation. We use the following guidelines:. 1. If the autopsy is deemed unnecessary for the investigation, it will not be performed. By law, an autopsy cannot be performed by the Coroners Office solely for medical curiosity. If the family or Doctor would like a medical curiosity autopsy to be performed, it must be arranged by the family or by the doctor with the familys permission, and be done by the Pathologist of your choice. You should be aware that the financial responsibility falls upon the requesting party and an autopsy can be quite expensive.. 2. If the Coroners Office deems it necessary to perform an autopsy as part of the investigation, the law grants us the ability to take jurisdiction of the body to perform the autopsy. There is no charge for an autopsy conducted under these circumstances.. 3. If you or your family should disagree with our decision to perform an ...

City and state officials demanded yesterday that the San Francisco medical examiners office stop forcing its workers to reuse disposable needles capable of transmitting lethal diseases through accidental needle sticks. Responding to a Chronicle report that the office has resisted regulators orders to end the practice, San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammiano said he would ask the Board of Supervisors on Monday to require an explanation from Dr. Boyd Stephens, the chief medical examiner. Thousands of needle-stick victims contract the AIDS virus, hepatitis C and other lethal infections every year, even though safety needles that could prevent the injuries have been available for at least a decade. The injuries are particularly dangerous in autopsy rooms, say health experts, because medical examiners must often examine the bodies of indigent and homeless individuals, drug abusers and others with high rates of diseases such as hepatitis, tuberculosis and AIDS. Ammiano has proposed an ordinance that would
Coroner fue una banda técnica de thrash de Zúrich, Suiza que recibió relativamente poca atención fuera de Europa.

Yvette Vickers, the early actress, model and Playboy playmate whose body was found reportedly mummified in her Los Angeles home, died of heart failure, the coroners office said Saturday.. Vickers, who would have been 82 when her body was found, died of natural causes due to arterial sclerotic cardiovascular disease, or heart disease caused by a hardening of the arteries, said Joyce Kato, an investigator with the Los Angeles County coroners department.. The department did not make a determination on when she died.. Vickers body appears to have remained undiscovered for close to a year, police said. A neighbor who had noticed cobwebs in Vickers mailbox entered the home and discovered her body on April 27. The inside of the Westwanda Drive home in the Benedict Canyon neighborhood of Los Angeles was in disrepair and it was hard to move through the rooms because boxes containing what appeared to be clothes, junk mail and letters formed barriers, said the neighbor, Susan Savage. Vickers body ...
CINCINNATI (AP) - A coroners office in Ohio is investigating the death of a 22-year-old college student who died less than a week after his return to the U.S. after nearly a year and a half in North Korean detention, a spokesman said Tuesday.. The spokesman for Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammaraco said the office accepted the case of Otto Warmbier, who died Monday in a Cincinnati hospital. Justin Weber told The Associated Press a press conference is expected later to provide more information.. Wambiers parents did not cite a specific cause of death, but cited awful, torturous mistreatment by North Korea. Doctors had described Warmbiers condition as a state of unresponsive wakefulness and said he suffered a severe neurological injury of unknown cause. He arrived in Ohio on June 13 after being held for more than 17 months.. The University of Virginia student was accused of trying to steal a propaganda banner while visiting with a tour group and was convicted of subversion. He ...
