Blood Poisoning

Post by Karen on Wed 27 Jul 2011 - 19:47

BLOOD POISONING.

On Saturday, at the London hospital, Mr. Wynne Baxter held an inquiry respecting the death of David Harris, aged 67, a warehouse porter, lately residing at 36, Alderney-road, Mile end Old Town. The deceased had had a gathering on his thumb for five or six weeks past, and went to a doctor, who lanced it; but as it got no better he opened it himself with a penknife. It then became much worse and spread up his arms; he was removed to the hospital where he died on Wednesday. Mr. Huntingdon, house surgeon, deposed that deceased was admitted on Saturday, 28th July, suffering from a wound in the thumb and inflammation up the arm. He progressed favourably for some time, but then became delirious and died. The post-mortem examination showed the cause of death to be blood poisoning, either from the wound being opened by a dirty instrument or by external disease being communicated to the wound. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."
