This book will be of immense value to undergraduate and postgraduate students of medicine, emergency medical officers, senior residents, intensivists, physicians, surgeons dealing with transplantation of organs,neurologists and neurosurgeons. The book will also be useful for the practitioners of law, judiciary, civil and hospital administrators, etc. in the light of the definitions and legal implications of brain death.
