A review of 300 attempted strangulation cases Part II: clinical evaluation of the surviving victim.

Author information

Emergency Physician, Sharp Grossmont Hospital, San Diego, California, USA.


Medical literature describing victims who survive strangulation is scant. The majority of articles on strangulation are found in the forensic literature, describing the post-mortem findings on autopsy. This article presents a suggested protocol for the evaluation and treatment of the surviving victim of strangulation, based upon a review of the available literature. It also corroborates the findings of Strack et al., in the study by the San Diego City Attorney's Office, described in Part I of this series.
