Which of the following is not a part of the criteria for 'brain death'?

Aren't the sometime reflexes even though the brain is "dead"?

I'm sorry you don't get it.

Perhaps I led you astray.

Check your book to see if a person who is brain dead is breathing or has reflexes.

Tasha/Cindy -- please use only one user name in this forum.

How can you learn if you don't have a book or access to online materials?
