DocBastard posts some good thoughts on brain death and the Jahi McMath case by Cory Franklin, a retired ICU physician from Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Franklin had a shorter version of his remarks in the San Francisco Chronicle.
“Any time you have a diagnosis with an outlier, it’s a good idea to review your original assumptions. In this case our assumptions about what brain death actually is.”
