- Brain death is defined as the irreversible loss of function of the brain, including the brain stem. Brain death in fact equalled with brain stem death. It is widely held that in patients with brain death who are receiving continued ventilation and full medical care, spontaneous cessation of the heart beat will ensue within a period of hours or a few days. We present a patient with a number of generally accepted sets of clinical criteria of brain stem death, but cardiac activity and complex spinal automatism were persisted 112 days with ventilatory support after diagnosis of brain death.
