Seldom do physicians need to make a brain death determination, but if it happens, the ISMA has resources to help you with that decision. On the ISMA website, you’ll see specific guidelines that provide a common reference point. You’ll also find a checklist you can use as a diagnostic tool for making the best possible end-of-life decisions.

Both resources were developed by Evansville neurosurgeon Emil Weber, M.D., and six physician specialists who reviewed the best authoritative information on brain death.

In 2009, the ISMA House of Delegates, comprised of more than 200 Indiana physicians, adopted the tools to provide a consistent guide for treating physicians, next of kin and/or legal representatives.

Find the resources on the ISMA website.
