find out why people are declared dead when the brain stops functioning even whenthe heart is still beating?
                     




SBM
The brain is the centre hub for all control to the body. You can replace many organs, if your heart is ill, you can get a transplant, but you can't transplant a brain, you only ever get one of those. So, in essence, the person is dead, regardless if the other parts of the body are still active.

Because at that point, even if the heart is beating, they will not be able to live ever again. If you didn't know, your brain is what controls everything in your body. With it dead, you are basically just a plant or a rock.

Because most people and families believe that when there is NO REASONABLE EXPECTATION of awakening or any form of recovery that resources to continue nutrition, mechanical ventilation (breathing machines) or other medications can be diminished or even withheld. Even if the patient does continue to be supported via extraordinary means, they will ultimately succumb to fatal pneumonia because they cannot clear their throats or sigh or breath deeply enough to prevent pneumonia. Sometimes, the removal of the machines which keeps the heart going is indeed the kindest path. Best wishes.
