  16. 16. <ul><li>DEFINATION </li></ul><ul><li>Is a form of asphyxia caused by mechanical occlusion of external air passages ex- the nose & mouth by hand, cloth, plastic bag, duct tape or such other material. </li></ul><ul><li>AUTOPSY FINDING </li></ul><ul><li>A circular pale area around the mouth & nose in often seen bluish discoloration, congested & petechial hm seen. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>Abrasion, bruises &laceration may be found around the mouth & nose In homicidal /accidental/ suicidal. </li></ul><ul><li>Nail scratch mark. </li></ul><ul><li># of of nasal cartilage. </li></ul><ul><li>Depression & bleeding from nose. </li></ul><ul><li>Lips, gums & tongue may show bruising & laceration . </li></ul><ul><li>Teeth may be loose or dislocated. </li></ul><ul><li>Struggle marks may be present in different part of body. </li></ul>

  19. 19. <ul><li>This occur when parent or some other adult shares the same bed with an infant. During sleep he/she may inadvertently roll over the infant asphyxiating it. </li></ul><ul><li>Along with petechial hm ,there may be evidence of flattening of nose & face or some time blood stain froth from mouth & nostrils . </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Refers to blockage of trachea or larynx by a foreign body ex- </li></ul><ul><li>- dentures </li></ul><ul><li>- fish bone </li></ul><ul><li>- food particle </li></ul><ul><li>- seeds </li></ul><ul><li>- aspiration of blood or </li></ul><ul><li>vomitus </li></ul><ul><li>death usually occurs from neurogenic cardiac arrest or hypoxia. </li></ul><ul><li>In epileptics death occurs d/t fall of tongue backwards . </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Even an object smaller than lumen of respiratory tract can bring about reflex spasm of air passages with fatal consequences. </li></ul><ul><li>CAUSE OF DEATH IN CHOKING </li></ul><ul><li>ASPHYXIA </li></ul><ul><li>VAGAL INHIBITION </li></ul><ul><li>LARYNGIAL SPASM </li></ul><ul><li>Apart from routine asphyxial finding there is presence of foreign body in respiratory tract. </li></ul><ul><li>MLI - accidental more commonly in children during playing, laughing, talking while eating </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>This is a condition of acc choking where a bolus of food produces complete obstruction of the larynx. It is called so b/c it mimics heart attack. It may be d/t- </li></ul><ul><li>Suppressed gag reflex –alcoholics ,drug intoxicated. </li></ul><ul><li>Reflex cardiac arrest –stimulation of laryngeal nerve endings. </li></ul><ul><li>The victim who was healthy apparently collapses & suddenly turns blue while eating . </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>This is strictly speaking a form of choking, the usual situation arises from a soft cloth being thrust into the mouth of a person to render him incapable of shouting. </li></ul><ul><li>d/t constant foreign body irritation there is pooling of saliva & death subsequently occurs d/t obstruction of air passages. </li></ul><ul><li>CAUL BIRTH –when child is born with his head covered by the amniotic sac it is unlikely to die of suffocation unless the membrane is incised at birth . </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>Also c/a crush or compression asphyxia . </li></ul><ul><li>In this death occurs from pressure & fixation </li></ul><ul><li>Of the chest & or abdomen, thus if a person is crushed under a vehicle or a house collapse, or an earthquake, stampede. </li></ul><ul><li>Traumatic asphyxia. </li></ul><ul><li>The steering wheel violently impinging on the drivers chest . </li></ul><ul><li>Unable to breath & dies d/t asphyxia. </li></ul><ul><li>It is mostly accidental. </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>gross congestion </li></ul><ul><li>Cyanosis </li></ul><ul><li>Petechae on face, neck & shoulders. </li></ul><ul><li>Dark discoloration of body above level of constriction, copious bleeding from mouth & nostrils. </li></ul><ul><li>Internally - sub pleural hm & Tardieu spots. </li></ul><ul><li>Injuries to chest- # of ribs ,laceration of lungs/ heart ,# of sternum. </li></ul>
  26. 26. <ul><li>Combination of smothering/ palmer strangulation & traumatic asphyxia resulting in death. </li></ul><ul><li>This method is invented by 2 criminals </li></ul><ul><li>William Burke </li></ul><ul><li>William Hare </li></ul><ul><li>who had planned the method-killed selected victim & sold their dead bodies to anatomy department. </li></ul><ul><li>Victim first intoxicated with alcohol. </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>When inebriated, pinned to the ground first by burke who used to sit on the chest of the victim & cover his mouth & then compress the neck with one hand while the other partner Hare pulled the body of the victim round the room with feet . </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>THANK YOU </li></ul>
