Note: At the 2009 IABPA meeting in Portland, OR, USA, the IABPA membership voted to adopt the SWGSTAIN recommended terminology.
- Projected Blood Pattern
- A bloodstain pattern that is produced by blood released under pressure as opposed to an impact, such as arterial spurting.
This pattern was generated by taking blood in a syringe and projecting it near-parallel to the target surface. This was done four times with varying pressure from approximately the same location.
This example shows the result of a stationary blood source releasing blood under pressure.
|Bevel & Gardner||Closest to Spatter Family - Linear - (Arterial) Spurt|
|James, Kish & Sutton||Closest to Spatter - Projected Mechanism - Arterial Spurt/Gush Spray|
|Wonder||Closest to Spatter - Arterial - (Breach)|
|SWGSTAIN||Projected Pattern - A bloodstain pattern resulting from the ejection of a volume of blood under pressure.|
