Review and Apply:

Review and Apply REVIEW Functional death is defined as the cessation of heartbeat and respiration; brain death is defined by the absence of electrical brain waves. What defines death has changed as medical advances allow us to resuscitate people who would once have been considered dead. Some medical experts believe that a person is in fact dead when they can no longer think, reason, or feel, and can never again live anything resembling a human life. The death of an infant or young child can be particularly difficult for parents, and for an adolescent death appears to be unthinkable.

Review and Apply:

Review and Apply REVIEW Cultural differences in attitudes and beliefs about death strongly influence people’s reactions to it. Thanatologists recommend that death education become a normal part of learning.
