Wake up

Dr. Yonatan Halevy
Director of Shaare Zedek Hospital
[49 seconds]

No one in history has woken from brain death the way we assess it, according to the rules that we have today to assess brain death. It would be in my eyes more plausible that someone who is pronounced as cardiac death, and that it was not assessed long enough, and this has been reported, that the heart will beat again if the resuscitation process was not long enough than after brain death.

 

Anyone who witnessed a patient who passed away from brain death will not even consider the possibility of coming back from this situation.
