If the patient is resuscitated then the doctor will tell the family...it was touch and go there for awhile but they are in ICU and their vital signs are stable. The only time a Doctor will ever tell a family their loved one is dead...is...if they are in fact dead. And when they call a code...they mark the time for the DEATH Certificate. No Death Certificate...No Death. All priests have unresolved issues or they wouldn't be priests! Hi Joc Yes understood and clinically dead is revivable not permanent, I didn’t write the definition and was just using it to explain a possibility for what occurred. Lack of oxygen can affect the brain and that is what I think happened to him. The doctors did tell my sister that mom died on the operating table so am just going with how it was described to me as I had not seen or spoken with mom for a decade at that time. 2 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
