    any other type of major organ failure results in brain death... (if the failure is bad enough)

    also other organs pretty much need the brain to function...

    Why are we asking this question again?

    In lieu of the hypothetical of malpractice no doubt the patient is dead.

    Do you accept the patient as dead?
    Yes because the ''I'' is gone. The person is dead and the only thing left is the human animal body.

    Hmm...

    Yes.

    Obviously the person actually has to be brain dead, no misdiagnosis or such...
