Caption: Life support removal. Nurse removing a respirator from a female patient in the intensive care unit of a hospital. The woman is brain-dead with a complete and irreversible loss of brain function. In certain cases patients with brain damage can be kept alive using a respirator and heart pacemaker. When doctors are certain that a person is brain-dead the decision is normally made to remove life support.
