Life Support in Brain Death

Ventilators and other forms of life support whilst a patient is brain dead

There is difference of opinion on this matter

4 Questions have been discussed.

  1. Is brain death real death
  2. When heart and lungs
  3. Withdrawing life support with ventilators when there is hope of recovery
    • What if the life support treatment is not affordable
  4. Withdrawing life support with ventilators when there is NO hope of recovery

In conclusion when someone is brain dead and doctors have no hope of recovery, withdrawing life support seems permissible.
