I really appreciate your concern, it is not the single function that functioning on its own but all the physiological function are connected with each other and one single function cannot be stopped on its own, it is not possible, when one single organ or vital function fails then other goes in same state soon.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
