A toxicology report after an autopsy?

It seems counterintuitive to a layperson such as myself that in this day of gee whizz technology and weekly medical breakthroughs that something like the type of chemicals in a body should take days, even weeks, to ascertain.

What are they looking for and why is it so difficult to measure or detect?

Just wondering.

It never ceases to amaze me the things that I don't know that others know off the top of their heads.

You don't have to wonder... google it and report back.

Maybe it's outsourced to India?

Not interested enough to Google, but I wonder if some chemical tests take time for the reaction to take place?

 

I also suspect that there is a fairly high level of indifference and maybe backlog at the lab. A relative of mine died of a pulmonary embolism, but her home contained considerable evidence of abuse of painkillers. The autopsy claimed she had nothing like that in her system. Her family was quite disturbed that this very likely contributing factor was obviously glossed over once the immediate cause of death was known.

Of course I know i could google it Maybe I just wanted to see if anyone knew without googling it.

I guess I don't feel so stupid now with you in my company.

Bureaucracy.
