Post-mortem drug concentrations in blood may not always reflect antemortem drug concentrations in blood due to the movement of the drugs after death. The occurrence is referred to as Postmortem Redistribution (PMR). Mechanisms involved in postmortem redistribution are both complex and out of sorts understood. However, postmortem drug concentrations in blood do follow some normally accepted trends that aid with interpretation; the characteristics of the drug itself can be used to specify if a drug is subject to PMR.
