We revisit the question of brain death, this time with a more practical focus. What should doctors tell families of patients who fulfill neurological criteria for brain death? Joining us on this program is Fred Rincon, MD, who is a Assistant Professor of Neurology at Jefferson University Medical Center in Philadelphia. Dr. Rincon is a neuro-intensivist who, on a day-to-day basis, cares for patients with severe brain injury. He also holds a Master’s in Bioethics from the University of Pennsylvania.
