The Riddle Behind Brain Death Myth

Lately, a popular Brazilian Neurologist has been on the foreground to break barriers on the brain death myth. It has been purposed that the same is preserved for a supply of an international multi-billion dollar transplant industry. International conference on neurology aims to cover neurological disorders which upcoming neurology conference Autrailis being held in Melbourne, Australia.

Cicero G. Coimbra who holds a Ph.D. of Medicines has been a neurologist and professor of neuroscience at the Federal University of Sau Paulo in Brazil. He has said that the recovery of comatose patients gases been often possible, with a tightly controlled medical establishment. This is further not giving doctors and medical students the facts which need to gather for the best of the patients.

As per Coimbra, the term brain death has been coined in the 1960s which was just after the first successful human heart transplant. This did trigger a demand in the transplantable vital organs which has to be harvested from patients. Further, these patients were considered as hopelessly comatose, within the medical knowledge purposed at that time.

Until then, no preliminary scientific research did exist on the brain death concept before the name came into existence. Still, calling the patients dead did make a lot of medical community to overcome, the legal hurdles which were associated in the removing of vital organs from the comatose patients.

In the late 1980s, with organ transplants being performed around the globe, several medical researchers were experimenting on animals for discovering the mechanism of blood flow to the brain. Consequently, it has been observed as the blood flow is reduced from the normal range to just about 20 to 50 percent, as termed as the brain is silent. Nevertheless, it was never dead or damaged. Within the end of the 1990s, the phenomenon is called the “ischemic penumbra” had been further demonstrated in humans, with a closed lid on the brain death myth.

19th International Conference on Neurology and Neurological Disorders

The International Conference of Neurology to be held at Melbourne, Australia determines the various studies of Neuroscience among a wide group of the audience including researchers. The major theme of the event is to make a collaborative strategy to fight neurological disorders, covering widely recognized topics of discussion. Further, Neurology 2019 aims at focusing on the latest research and tools that are required to treat diseases in a better way. This conference is one of the prominent ways to further make learning about the recent research and aspects being held on Neurology research and development.
