Muerte cerebral

LasVegaEMR - 07/03/2014 - By Sean Weaver, DO MPH
"Brain death accounts for 1-2% of all deaths in the United States (1).  Depending on where you practice this number may seem too high or too low.  Regardless, patients may present to your emergency department clinically brain dead.  While neurologists, neurosurgeons and intensivists may have more experience in determining brain death, all physicians have the legal authority to determine brain death (2).  As emergency medicine physicians we need to know how to properly evaluate these patients, assess their level of brain function, guide their disposition and prepare the family or loved ones for the eventual outcome."
