Hello!

I have several questions, so help me please if you feel like it.

1) Which version is more suitable for scientific paper:

The post mortal period for study inclusion was less than 24 hours, while cadaver(s) aged from 18-88 (mean 63,3 years).

Cadavers from this study were in post mortal period less than 24 hours, aged from 18-88 (mean 63,3 years).

2)Is "years" necessary here?

3) "cadaver" or "cadavers"?

4) Is "mean" OK in this context?

Thank you very much.

Hi,

I have several questions, so help me please if you feel like it.

1) Which version is more suitable for scientific paper:

The post mortal period for inclusion in the study was less than 24 hours, and cadavers were those of people aged 18-88 (mean 63,3 years).

I've never heard the expression 'post-mortal' used like this, and I don't know what it means. Are you referring to the period from death to completion of the post-mortem?

Cadavers in this study were in post mortal period (<<< ???) less than 24 hours, and were those of people aged 18-88 (mean 63,3 years).

2)Is "years" necessary here? No.

3) "cadaver" or "cadavers"? The latter.

Hi Clive!

I guess "post mortal period" refers to the period from the death to the beginning of post mortem. I'll have to check that, though.
Thank you very much
