Reports of people having "near-death" experiences go back to antiquity, but the oldest medical description of the phenomenon may come from a French physician around 1740, a researcher has found.

The report was written by Pierre-Jean du Monchaux, a military physician from northern France, who described a case of near-death experience in his book "Anecdotes de Medecine." Monchaux speculated that too much blood flow to the brain could explain the mystical feelings people report after coming back to consciousness.

Though not a medical report as such, but the oldest report of an NDE was recorded by the Greek philosopher Plato in his book "Republic". There he discusses the story of "Er", a soldier who described his journey into the afterlife.
