Examination of Brain Death

Yu.N. Sorokin, A.S. Sokolov, N.B. Sorokina


Diagnostics of brain death is carried out on the basis of clinical criteria of brain death and the positive test for apnoeic oxygenation. For the purpose of overcoming the difficulties in diagnosis and reduction of the observation period, the carrying out of additional (confirming) tests is possible. These include: transcranial dopplerography, definition of lack of oxygen uptake by brain tissue and an arterial venous difference by oxygen partial pressure.
