To the Editor Greer et al 1 analyzed compliance of hospital protocols on brain death (BD) determination with the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) guidelines. They posited that this neurologic standard is % accurate. We comment on the accuracy claim. First, accuracy is judged by resumption of a specific set of ceased neurologic functions within a predefined short timeline. Brain death (BD) should be understood as the ultimate clinical expression of a brain catastrophe characterized by a complete and irreversible neurological stoppage, recognized by irreversible coma.
While ample criticism of the scientific criteria of brain death (Harvard criteria) by traditional legal sources now exists, an analysis of the legal process in assessing brain death, geared toward.

A retrospective comparison of children who met the President's Commission criteria for brain death and those who met the criteria of the Task Force was done subsequent to publication of the Task Force criteria.

It is an invaluable resource for neurologists, neurointensivists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, trauma surgeons, neuroscience and intensive care nursing Cited by: Brain death is the complete loss of brain function (including involuntary activity necessary to sustain life).
It differs from persistent vegetative state, in which the person is alive and some autonomic functions remain. It is also distinct from an ordinary coma, whether induced medically or caused by injury and/or illness, even if it is very deep, as long as some brain and bodily activity.
The determination of brain death can be considered to consist of 3 steps. First, the clinical evaluation of brain death fulfills the criteria (deep coma, absence of brain stem reflexes, and no spontaneous respiration).
Second, at least 2 of 3 ancillary tests fulfill the criteria. The three essential findings in brain death are coma, absence of brain stem reflexes, and apnea. An evaluation for brain death should be considered in patients who have suffered a massive, irreversible brain injury of identifiable cause.

Eleven chapters by physicians, philosophers, and theologians present the case against brain-based criteria for human death.

In this issue of JAMA, contributors to the World Brain Death Project present an international consensus report on criteria for the diagnosis of brain death, or determination of death by neurologic criteria (BD/DNC). 1 The report addresses inconsistencies in clinical guidelines across different countries and focuses attention on the need for better education and certification of clinicians who.
The goal of the guidelines is to remove some of the variability among doctors in their procedure for declaring brain death, which previous research has found to be a problem. The authors have pointed out that in order to correctly diagnose brain death, it is essential.

The criteria given for brain-death syndrome were: apneic coma with no evidence of brain stem or spinal reflexes and a flat electroencephalogram over a period of 24 h. The report implied that death was brain death and recommended withdrawal of life support. The diagnosis of brain-stem death involves three stages.
First, the cause of the coma must be ascertained, and it must be established that the patient (who will always have been in apneic coma and on a ventilator for several hours) is suffering from irremediable, structural brain damage.
