445:10-1-8. Deaths during therapeutic procedures 
     In order for a death occurring during a therapeutic procedure to be a medical examiner case, it must be medically unexpected. So that proper investigation can be made in medical examiner cases, the attending physician must immediately notify the medical examiner when death is pronounced. In medical examiner cases all apparatus of any type which was utilized in the therapy of the patient at the time of death including but not limited to intravenous set up and medications, electrical equipment, and anaesthesia machines and their connections and gas cylinders, must remain in place as they existed at the time of death and may not be disturbed or removed until and unless permission from the medical examiner is obtained.
