dc.description.abstractAnnas, a professor of health law, asserts that adoption by states of the Uniform Determination of Death Act or of any brain death legislation is unnecessary because such statutes merely codify existing common law. He reassures physicians concerned about legal liability that determination of death based on accepted medical standards satisfies legal requirements. (KIE abstract)en
