Description:
Brain death as a concept is ubiquitous in medical, nursing and lay literature. This is a recognition that some brain injured patients maintained on artificial ventilation develop complete and irreversible loss of brain stem function. Brain death is accepted as the equivalent of cardiac death (the usual statutory cause of death). Cardiac asystole usually follows within days or weeks despite continuation of mechanical ventilation and full supportive therapy.
