is my dad brain dead so to speak? just had a cows valve placed ,not sure where in his heart ........surgery w/o complications, he s 72, diabetic,low blood pressure , etc.......just saw him, on ventilator ...
in braindeath. We were told by the people she was with that she was having breathing difficulty ... or withdrawl symptoms for the first couple of days during her coma...when the jerking stopped the Dr. claimed ...
Pt. was in a coma for 48 hours. Pupils are non-responsive to light. I heard that this means there is no brain function. How true is that? Other explanations?
Hello! It is true. But there can be exceptions like intoxication etc. Other tests ate needed to define braindeath.
Hope to have been helpful!
A patient that was braindeath was removed from life support and is breathing by himself. Will this person survive?
there is no chance of survive if patient's brain is dead.
so pt lives up to when he is on life support.
as brain is the organ which controls the breathing if brain is dead breathing is not possible,

if you have not taken radiation therapy so far, radiation would definitely help. please understand that radiation will not cause braindeath. forget about time frames and go ahead with therapy both radiation and chemo bravely
