Timing is everything!
And then found he’d already voted in 17 state elections for Democrats.
It’s patient zero of a Zombie plague
OK. Funnier than the comment I was going to post!
If he is indeed brain dead then ... yes ... he needs treatment. :-)
Thanks for posting! What an incredible story. I hope he recovers.
IF he is "brain dead", that should suggest no brain wave activity. How then can he have a heart rate and respiratory function if the brain is "dead" and unable to send electrical impulses to activate the autonomic systems?
Brain Dead is a convenience contrived once heart transplants became possible.
“IF he is “brain dead”, that should suggest no brain wave activity. How then can he have a heart rate and respiratory function if the brain is “dead” and unable to send electrical impulses to activate the autonomic systems?”
Brain death means a loss of higher cognitive function and the ability to have consciousness. Control of autonomic systems is a less complex level of brain function (although obviously vital).
..... Heck .... How do these people actually know the guy was alive? .... Truly enlightened and knowldegable people would understand that .... Perhaps he was just a Corps identifying itself as a Live Person ....
.... You mean like Democrats?
In India it is common to say that ‘life is an illusion.’
This guy is a better fakir than most! ;-)
Easier to just register him as a Democrat.
“Brain Dead is a convenience contrived once heart transplants became possible.”
I understand why you say that, but I can tell you that no physician I know would ever push for an inaccurate diagnosis of ‘brain death’, ever. That would be horrible, and would be murder. You’d have to have significant mental health issues to ever think that way. To be honest, physicians in general can’t stand having someone they are treating die. You feel that you have failed that patient. As such, physicians often push for aggressive therapy even when it is futile. Everyone, in all professions, is human. There are, of course, some jerks, but that’s just a problem with humanity.
“You mean like Democrats?”
i know a lady that was in an accident. The doctor filled out the death certificate she was in the morgue in the hospital and she woke up.
Shhh! Be verwy qwiet!
I am hunting wabbit...
So, why are they declared brain dead while they're still alive but unconscious? Just like this guy, they were what, dead but not dead dead?
Whatever the attending physician feels, the people looking for organs must fit into that group you say "have significant mental health issues" and I've heard their line of BS when my MIL was hospitalized for a while, technically brain dead, then awake, recovered, and alive for a further six years.
