Abstract

Until better scientific data are available upon which we can base our recommendations, we suggest that the diagnosis of pediatric brain death should remain a clinical one to be made at the bedside, by knowledgeable physicians who, in concert with grieving families, make the most agonizing of all life's events (the death of a child) as bearable as possible for all concerned.
