dc.description.abstractIn this eighth in a series of nine articles, Pallis compares the British and American approaches to establishing brain death and indicates his preference for the British emphasis on more strictly defined preconditions of irremediable, structural brain damage. He also presents two tables, the first listing countries where, as of 1979, brain death was (a) legally recognized as death or (b) medically accepted without a legal statute, and the second showing which countries required an electroencephalogram and/or an angiogram in addition to clinical tests to establish brain death.
