This is a little quiz for you. In one of the ERs where I have worked it fell to the ER doc to pronounce death for most of the 'natural causes' deaths in our area. In one case I pronounced a person dead who looked a lot like the picture above. Now, aside from dearly wishing the Blue Man Group dead to a man... (perhaps mauled by very hungry out of work tigers?), what would it tell you, say, MS1, if this is what your patient looked like. And no, this person did not die of met-hemoglobinemia. Oh by the way, I'm crazy 'bout Elvis.
