Phenomenology of ether administration. With a review of the literature



Phenomenology of ether administration. With a review of the literature



Archiv für Kriminologie 202(3-4): 87-94



A 45-year-old man was found dead lying on a sofa in his house. He had pulled a plastic bag over his head, the bag containing a pad of cotton-wool soaked with diethylether. Different aspects are discussed in this paper including a review of the literature: anamnesis, scene of death, utensils used for inhalation and autopsy findings. There are especially pointed out the results of chemical-toxicological analyses in many body compartments. Furthermore are interpreted the manners and the relations of the distribution of ether as well as possible effects on the consciousness. In consideration of other published cases, the analytical results concerning ether are discussed with regard to the presumed cause of death (e.g. asphyxia) and other potential competitive mechanisms.
