Principles of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology

Brief Introduction

It is with great pleasure that I am presenting the book, Principles of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology. The book is primarily designed for undergraduates and presented in a simple and lucid language. For ease of students, conventional pattern has been modified whenever feasible and the contents are presented in point-wise manner. About 337 tables and about 638 photographs and flow charts are added for easy understanding and learning. Keeping with contemporary period, recent advances are included. A new chapter, Forensic Osteology, is added and aimed to cater theoretical and practical need of students. Latest trends in management of poisoned patients have been included. While preparing this textbook, I have consulted various textbooks and journals and I am indebted to these authors.

I hope this book will serve the purpose and help students to learn the subject in easy way. The suggestions and healthy criticism will be of immense help for future improvement of this book.

Death is inevitable! From ages it has been mourned. The process and agony of death has attracted many philosophers, scholars, saints, and literary people to put their views and each one had tried to defi ne death in their own way. With evolution of scientifi c temperament and development of medical science, attempts were made to defi ne death. Thanatology (Greek, thanatos = death, logus = science) is branch of medical science that deals with the study of death. Physician’s concept of death is total stoppage of circulation of blood with consequent cessation of vital functions. Black’s law dictionary (1968 edition) defi ned death as “the cessation of life, the ceasing to exist, defi ned by physicians as total stoppage of circulation of blood and cessation of the animal and vital functions consequent thereupon such as respiration, pulsation etc”. Shapiro (1969) defi nes death as “the irreversible loss of the properties of living matter”. Rentoul and Smith (1973) defi ned death as “complete and persistent cessation of respiration and circulation”.
