Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach
[37 seconds]

HaRav Shlomo Auerbach told me specifically, I have written his words, and he checked it and agreed for it to be published, and his position clearly was such the heart per se is not necessarily a sign of life and death. In other words, a person can be defined as dead even though his heart is still functioning. What is important to Rabbi Auerbach was brain function.
