Inflammation could relate to forensic nursing in that forensic nurses sometimes take tissue samples from the bodies they are performing autopsies on or patients they are working on that may be criminals or victims for evidence of a crime that has been committed. If the mechanism of injury or death was from trauma, there may be lasting evidence of acute inflammation in the tissues. Some signs of acute inflammation are swelling, redness, pain, heat, and loss of function. Obviously if someone is dead, they would probably no longer have those signs I just mentioned. They may however have increased neutrophil or eosinophil levels and possibly an increased amount of macrophages out of the venules and into the interstitial tissues. If there is evidence of MBP (major basic protein) present, that could serve as evidence that the person’s body was trying to fight off a parasite.
