A code of practice for the diagnosis and confirmation of death

By | Reports & Guidance, UKDEC Reports & Guidance | No Comments

This revised Code builds upon the earlier Code published in 1998 and updates a number of important aspects. It provides clear, scientifically rigorous criteria for confirming death, both in clinical settings where confirmation of death by brain-stem testing is appropriate, and where confirmation of death following cardiac arrest is required.
