Aspiration in autopsy
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Compare the material to what is found in the ventricle, suggesting aspiration.
- Check if the linings of the trachea and bronchi is inflamed. Non-inflamed linings suggests postmortem aspiration.
Foreign material in bronchioles but not in alveoli in a patient who has received CPR suggests a post-CRP finding rather than a primary cause of death.
