Hi Sarathkrishna,

If there is confirmation of brain death, then unfortunately no more treatment options exist. Unfortunately this situation is unsurvivable and he is being kept alive by the ventillator and his heart is continuing to pump blood. If your friend's family has no objection, then his organs could possibly help a few patients suffering from various other diseases.

Hope this answer helps?
