Even in the US, some controversy persists over the conceptual defensibility of brain death. Around the world, the philosophical defensibility of brain death is even more debatable. Dr. Qing Yang will present data regarding the adoption of brain death in China. She will discuss cultural differences between Chinese and US medical professionals and patients that inform policy and law when it comes to brain death. Dr. Bob Truog, a prominent brain death critic, will reply.
