Project Description

This courtroom exhibit was used in a plaintiff personal-injury case during expert testimony to explain to a jury the mechanism of negative pressure pulmonary edema. 

This case involved a woman who underwent a routine tummy tuck, but ultimately passed away due to postoperative complications of anesthesia removal. An autopsy revealed severe, bilateral, pulmonary edema. This panel served as a key demonstrative to clearly and effectively show a jury how negative pressure pulmonary edema can occur.
