Death represents the permanent cessation of all vital functions of the organism. We distinguish two forms of death: apparent (clinical) and real (biological) death.
Apparent (clinical) death is a transient condition in which a person is unconscious for a short time, does not breathe and his heart does not work. Life functions are reduced to a minimum, and timely implementation of resuscitation procedures can restore the vital functions of the organism.
Real (biological) death occurs due to the permanent cessation of all vital functions of the organism. It should be borne in mind that if the accident is in a state of hypothermia (body temperature below 35 ° C), the time of biological death may be delayed, because in these conditions, the processes of irreversible changes in body tissues are largely stopped.
