    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    No- you cant have an allergic rxn in a dead person as circulation is required to spread immune mediators.
    Now a follow up question- name some of the immune mediators and there function? Don't be scared to look 'em up, it's important to know.
