    Abstract

    Determination of postmortem chemical values may be of use in a variety of situations. Results of such studies may demonstrate biochemical abnormalities responsible for death when no autopsy is performed, establish a cause of death where autopsy reveals no significant anatomic pathology, help in the evaluation of the physiological effects of recognizable anatomic lesions, and assist in estimating the time of death.
