When this large clot tries to go into the lungs to get oxygenated as it normally should- it gets stuck. To the point blood flow stops and the patient drops dead.This photo is remarkable, actually showing the large clot moving through the heart where it basically stopped in its tracks when the person died.As you can see, this thick big clot is a major clog in the circulatory system.Risk factors for PE include cancer, oral contraception, obesity, and diseases that cause the blood to abnormally clot.Go to: https://go.drdrew.com/Nicole Angemi The link is also in my story!!!

One of the first things we can see with our eyes is skin slippage. In my experience, as soon as you take a body out of refrigeration and it starts adjusting to room temperature within an hour or 2 you can start to visualize the changes.The bottom photos are from autopsy showing a brain with fat embolism.The arrows point to pin point hemorrhages in the white matter.Microscopically fat can actually be seen in the blood vessels and special stains can be done to confirm a fat embolism.
Still the risk of dying is rare, less than 20 deaths per 100,000 surgeries.Very cool to see how your epidermis determines your skin color. When the bubble is popped the dermis is a very pale pink color. Manipulating and dressing the body could make the blisters rupture and the ooze could ruin the garments.
