Brain stem death

Brain stem death

Brain stem death is when a person no longer has any brain stem functions, and has permanently lost the potential for consciousness and the capacity to breathe. When this happens, a ventilator keeps the person's heart beating and oxygen circulating through their bloodstream. A person is confirmed as being dead when their brain stem function is permanently lost.
