ABC of Brain Stem Death: Diagnosis of Brain Stem Death--II
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1982 Dec 4; 285(6355): 1641-1644.
In this fourth in a series of nine articles on brain death, Pallis continues his presentation of explicit guidelines for the physician to use in diagnosing brain stem death. He describes simple bedside tests for ascertaining the irreversible loss of brain stem function, emphasizes the importance of repeat testing, and contrasts the stringency of brain stem death diagnostic standards with the laxer criteria normally used to establish cardiac death.
