Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Death from air embolism during pregnancy has been reported following sexual activity, particularly vaginal insufflation. We report a death from air embolism in a non-pregnant woman during consensual penile intercourse, in a position with the pelvis elevated above heart level. Air is thought to have entered the veins via a vaginal laceration, which occurred during digital foreplay.
