Does anyone know,
If you were to take a blood test from a young person after they were dead (cpr still ongoing), would the blood tests be different than if they were
taken before the death of that person?
What I need to know is this:
If the results showed congestive heart failure or kidney failure, or a blood sugar of 20... and the blood was drawn after the person was dead (time of
death not called yet and cpr still going for a good hour) -- would the results be something we could assume to be correct or would the
number be off because of the body shutting down?
And how far out of wack would the results be if they would show different?
(If anyone can help with this - I have the results here and can give you exact numbers and tests run etc.)
My baby brother died at the age of 22. The ME refused to do a autopsy to find out the cause of death, and although I tricked the late night blood
lab at the hospital into faxing me his results... everyone proclaims that these tests are non existant and never happened.
