(Sax.) (Sc.) Dede, Deid; Apobiosis, Abiosis, Extinctio, Obitus, Psychoragia, Psychorrhagia, Lethum, Letum, Mors, Interitus, Thanatos, Decease, (F.) Mort. Definitive cessation of all the functions, the aggregate of which constitute life. Real Beath, Apothanasia, is distinguished from asphyxia or apparent death- the latter being merely a suspension of those same functions. But it is often difficult to judge of such suspension, and the only certain sign of real death is the commencement of putrefaction. At times, therefore, great caution is requisite to avoid mistakes. Death is commonly preceded by some distressing symptoms, which depend on lesion of respiration, circulation, or of the cerebral functions, and which constitute the agony. That which occurs suddenly, and without any, or with few, precursory signs, is called sudden death. It is ordinarily caused by disease of the heart, apoplexy, the rupture of an aneurism, or by some other organic affection. Death is natural, (Sc.) Strae-death, when it occurs as the result of disease: violent, when produced by some forcible agency. It may likewise affect the whole body, or a part only hence the difference between somatic and molecular death.
