Postmortem Interpretive Toxicology Course

Apr. 23, 2019 - Apr. 26, 2019
Science History Institute 
315 Chestnut St, Philadelphia PA

The Center for Forensic Science Research & Education presents its 7th annual course in interpretive postmortem toxicology.  This is an in-depth course which explores one of the most challenging areas of forensic science.  Speakers will cover the complex range of considerations that must be applied in performing analysis, reporting and interpreting results in postmortem toxicological casework.

Factors from choice of samples, collection tubes, postmortem redistribution, analytical approach, drug-drug interactions and tolerance all play a part in providing accurate and reliable interpretive input for the pathologist or medical examiner. The course is suitable for both forensic toxicologists and forensic pathologists.

The course will address all aspects of the investigation of toxicological death, from the scene investigation, to the autopsy, design of analytical approach tailored to specific types of death, to the interpretation of the results, including assessment of postmortem redistribution. The course will review the forensic pharmacology and toxicology of the major drug categories found in toxic deaths, including opioids, CNS depressants and antipsychotics, anticonvulsants, stimulants, CO, CN H2S, as well as less frequently tested-for toxins such as metals, pesticides, and chemical warfare agents.

CME credits will be offered.
