    i'm not sure that this is the right forum but i have a question and i guess that someone in medicine would know this. is it true that when you are dead you don't bleed? how does that work? i mean if you cut in a dead body shortly after death appeared surely blood must come out? :confused: or is it only called bleeding when the heart is pumping it?

    i have been watching too much CSI :cool:

    Well, blood only moves if there's something pumping it, after death, the heart stops so there would be no bleeding, just movement due to gravity I guess.

    Technically it coagulates. Thrombosis occurs in life, coagulation (clot formation) in death.

    No, pedantic is good - you could have just mentioned the very fact that'll get someone into their med school

    I think this is the one you were searching for: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/lapt/laptlite/index.htm

    It came recommended by my Director of Studies in Preclinical Medicine when I was in the first year, which is how I knew where to find it. There's lots of stuff besides medical MCQs, including some help with the BMAT and some stuff pitched at school students.
