AUTOPSY



           Is also known as necropsies or post mortem examination. Derived from the Greek word "autopsia" meaning "to see with one's own eyes". It is a procedure wherein anatomic pathologists dissect corpses to determine the cause of death and to add to medical knowledge. The autopsy begins with a complete external examination. The weight and height of the body are recorded, and identifying marks such as scars and tattoos also are recorded.

Postmortem examination :

         Examination of body after death.
         By law-when death is sudden or occurs within 48 hours of admission.
         Organs and tissues are examined to establish the exact cause of death and to assist in the accumulation of statistical data.
         The internal examination begins with the creation of a Y or U- shaped incision from both shoulders joining over the sternum and continuing down to the pubic bone.
         The skin and underlying tissues are then separated to expose the rib cage and abdominal cavity.
         The front of the rib cage is removed to expose the neck and chest organs.
         Small samples are typically taken from all organs to be made into slide preparations for examination under a microscope.
         At the end of an autopsy, the incisions made in the body are sewn closed.
         The organs may be returned to the body or may be retained for teaching, research, and diagnostic purposes.
