Emery J L - - 1986
Based on personal investigation of more than 2000 unexpected infant deaths it appears that 'cot deaths' do not form a pathological entity. This concept is supported by detailed pathological studies undertaken in a multicentre study of postperinatal mortality in the United Kingdom. Comprehensive necropsies were performed by paediatric pathologists on ...
McDonald R T - - 1986
This study investigated the relationship between positive/negative death imagery and death anxiety. Subjects were 179 undergraduate students at a large, private, midwestern university.

In the mouse, all autosomal monosomies and trisomies are lethal by the time of birth (Searle, 1981). To test whether ethanol ingested by females shortly after mating induces nondisjunction, as reported by Kaufman (1983) on the basis of cytological evidence, we attempted to determine whether the incidence of intrauterine death ...
Persinger M A - - 1985
Death anxiety and more severe forms of thanatophobia are encountered frequently in the clinical population. However, approaches that allow behavioral solutions to these experiences are conspicuously absent in the literature. From an operant perspective, death anxiety arises from repeated exposures to direct and implicit forms of the statement "I will ...

Poisoning by blue-green algae occurs after an algal "bloom" caused by warm weather and algal concentration. On death or disintegration, the algae release liver toxins and neurotoxins (fast death factor). Although deaths are common in animal exposures, human exposures have been limited to various allergic reactions, mild liver enzyme elevation, ...
Mayo D - - 1985
A number of recent theorists, all proceeding on the assumption that there is no afterlife, argue that the notion of one's own death defies comprehension in ways that have important implications. Some argue this "ineffability" of death precludes a rational decision to die. Dr. Edwin Shneidman maintains that it makes ...
Ruttenber A J - - 1984
Deaths associated with injected street preparations of heroin increased substantially in the District of Columbia between April 1979 and December 1982. The 1981 population-based mortality rate (17.4 per 100,000) is possibly the highest ever reported. A case-control study based on toxicologic analyses of postmortem blood samples indicates that concentrations of ...

This paper reports the biochemical changes that occur in pericardial fluid after death. Significant changes in relation to the time since death occurred in potassium, sodium, phosphate, protein and several commonly measured enzymes. The variation in individual results at similar times since death would limit the use of pericardial fluid ...
Sauer N J - - 1984
Although their customary role is the identification of decomposed human remains, forensic anthropologists are frequently called upon to provide evidence for or to testify about the circumstances that surrounded a particular death. The literature is ambiguous and contradictory about the role of anthropologists in death investigations. Relying upon traditional distinctions, ...
Walker R - - 1984
Investigation of deaths in early childhood is one method of assessing the quality of child care in a district. This paper describes a study carried out in one health district, on children in the age group one week to five years: 28 deaths occurred over a two-year period, 25 of ...

Garriott J C - - 1984
In two deaths of infants investigated by the Medical Examiner, high levels of dicyclomine were detected in blood. In one of the cases, a level of 0.505 micrograms/ml was found, nearly 10 times reported adult therapeutic blood concentrations, and death was ascribed to an overdose of dicyclomine. Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry ...
Kellehear A - - 1984
There exists in much social science literature on death and dying the traditionally held view that modern societies are 'death-denying'. In some cases this has been a 'throw away' line of minimal importance. Other times, the thesis that we are a death-denying society has taken on the appearance of serious ...
Jänisch W - - 1984
An epidemiologic investigation of true neoplasms of the central nervous system in fetuses and infants in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) was undertaken.

Lehmann H - - 1983
Freud's reaction to the death of his mother as he reported it in letters to Ernest Jones and Sandor Ferenczi is discussed. The sense of liberation and the absence of grief which he emphasized is given some analytic consideration. An attempt is then made to gain an understanding of Freud's ...
Browne A - - 1983
The author, a philosopher, suggests that the concept of death should be left as it is 'in its present indeterminate state', and that we ought to reject attempts to define death in terms of whole-brain death or any other type of brain death, including cerebral death and 'irreversible coma'. Instead ...
Smith D K - - 1984
The way in which an individual's belief system about death affects fear of death (FOD) has been largely neglected in the thanatology literature. The present study addresses the dimension of certainty or uncertainty with which beliefs about death are held and examines the way in which such attitudes might affect ...
Shneidman E S - - 1983
The distinction is made between two uses of the word "death," specifically, your death (the death of the other) and my death (the death of the self). It makes (logical, epistemological and phenomenological) sense for me to speak of your death, but not for me to speak of my death-inasmuch ...
