About this title


This text provides an overview of the processes of brain death, exploring the concepts and historical approach of human death, clinical examinations of brain-dead patients, ancillary tests in coma and brain death, bioethical discussions of brain death and its relationship with some consciousness disturbances, and the legal considerations of human death. Unlike other, narrow-focus reference this book encompasses a wide spectrum of issues including medical, legal, bioethical and historical aspects.


From the reviews:

"This is a single author monograph describing recent work culminating in the contemporary approach to diagnosis of brain death. ... Neurologists, neurosurgeons, intensivists, and transplanters are an appropriate audience for this work ... . Black-and-white line drawings are done well and a selection of good color plates is grouped together. ... This book smoothly sheds light on the biology and controversy surrounding an important clinical topic. ... is attractive for its historical scope coupled with clinical clarity." (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2008)
