[Noninformative coding of causes of death in cardiovascular deaths: effects on the mortality rate for ischemic heart disease].
DISCUSSION: A comparison of cause-specific mortality rates between regions, sexes, and over time is affected by differences in the use of noninformative causes of death.

[External post-mortem examination according to S1 guideline 2017 of the German Society of Legal Medicine].
Abstract In Germany, the system of external post-mortem examinations is regulated by state law. In order to standardize the performance of external post-mortem examinations as far as possible throughout Germany, the German Society of Legal Medicine developed the S1 guideline "Rules for the performance of external post-mortem examination." The current version of this guideline was published on the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF) homepage in November 2017. The guideline explains in detail the reliable determination of death, the diagnosis of the cause of death, the classif...

[Forensic postmortem examination service: challenges and opportunities].
Abstract The external examination of a corpse is regulated by federal law and presents physicians and police with a series of challenges. Mostly GPs, but practically every licensed physician, are obliged to complete death certificates, resulting in a very large number of potential physicians, which at the same time means only a small number of cases for each individual. Consequently, this sensitive topic often lacks the experience needed.As already shown in several studies, only very limited possibilities for the correct determination of the cause of death are generally present at the inquest. ...

[The postmortem examination and death certificate by the general practitioner: problems with certification on site].
Abstract Family doctors are the most competent persons for the postmortem examination due to their knowledge of the patient, previous history, and the circumstances of death. The postmortem examination is a medical activity with specific requirements for the physician that require special training. The situation on site enables the physician to gather important information about the circumstances of death. However, a local postmortem examination is also carried out under difficult conditions, without personal or professional support and in an environment that knows neither the meaning nor the procedure o...

[Qualified post-mortem examination-experiences from Bremen].
Abstract On 1 August 2017, the qualified post-mortem examination was introduced in Bremen by changing the relevant law. A substantial change is the separation of the pure death determination, which can be done by any physician, and the subsequent execution of the post-mortem examination by a suitably qualified physician. For the city of Bremen, the Institute for Legal Medicine (IRM) was charged with this task (in Bremerhaven, the health department).In this article, practical implementation, problems, and advantages and disadvantages of the new law are presented. For the year 2018 we did a statistical eva...

Data obtained from the death certificates are the basis for mortality statistics and for scientific research.

CONCLUSIONS: Serious complications and even death after button battery ingestion are described in Germany.

Because no symptoms or only slight discomfort are developed initially, awareness of button batteries as a unique corrosive hazard among the public and clinicians is an important requirement for prompt diagnosis and treatment resulting in a satisfactory outcome.

Abstract In 1963 first poison control centres (PCCs) were created in the former Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) as well as in the German Democratic Republic (GDR). In the 1980s, the GDR centralized the toxicological information service in only one centre, whereas the federal structure of the FRG resulted in a foundation of 19 centres. Today only eight German PCCs are established under the responsibility of the German states. Most of them are part of or closely related to university hospitals. In this article, the history, function and relevance of German PCCs are presented.The centres advise on about 2...

Abstract Despite long-lasting international efforts to ban and disarm chemical warfare agents (CWAs), they pose an ongoing threat to the population. The reasons for this are existing remainders, inappropriately disposed of chemical munitions and availability of instructions for synthesis in open literature. Dissemination of CWAs during war, warlike conflicts and terrorist incidents has recently resulted in thousands of deaths. In this manuscript CWAs and comparable substances are presented and the signs and symptoms of poisoning with these substances are described. Aside from clear recommendations for the treatmen...

[Oral health-related quality of life in rare diseases associated with oral symptoms, diagnostic delay, and sex].
CONCLUSION: Regardless of the presence of oral symptoms, people with rare diseases in Germany show a poorer oral health-related quality of life than is known to the normal population. If oral symptoms are present, they show a negative correlation with oral health-related quality of life. On average, it takes 8.37 years for a disease to be correctly diagnosed. The earlier a rare disease is diagnosed, the better the oral health-related quality of life of those affected.

[Should advertising for electronic cigarettes and heated tobacco products be banned in Germany? Results of a  representative survey (DEBRA study)].
CONCLUSIONS: The majority of the German population supports a comprehensive advertising ban on ANDSs. Tobacco smokers and ANDS users are also more in favour of than against such a ban. Thus, only little resistance will be expected within the population if a comprehensive tobacco advertising ban, as currently discussed in parliament, includes e‑cigarettes and heated tobacco products.

[Associations of maternal educational background with health and health behavior in infants].
CONCLUSIONS: Higher maternal education can help infants have a good start in their lives. The impact of poor health behavior on infant health may not become apparent until later in their lives. For prevention and intervention, it is important to identify sensitive stages of development during childhood and the underlying mechanisms of the relationship between maternal education and infant health behavior.
