Description

This third volume in the Forensic Pathology Atlases: Causes of Death Series provides an overview of the types, mechanisms, and physical findings associated with deaths involving asphyxia. Asphyxia and Drowning serves as a basic framework for an extensive pictorial representation of findings associated with these types of deaths. It helps the reader to gain a better understanding of the processes leading to asphyxiation, to recognize the associated physical findings, and better appreciate the difficulties in evaluating asphyxiation deaths.

Reviews

"…volumes are appropriate for the target readership of death investigators, law enforcement officers, and attorneys. Physicians-in-training, in such specialties as Pathology, Emergency Medicine, and Surgery would benefit from careful reading of these books…I anticipate that the remaining volumes in this series will prove equally useful."
