Very few studies are dealing with the way general practitioners feel the death of their patients. Main studies about that subject are qualitative. It needs quantitative studies to analyse ...
This study examines muscle movements of elecromyography in adults with brain death. Half of the participants will have brain death, the other half will be healthy volunteers.
Assessment of the psychological benefit of the proposition by prehospital medical team of a sudden death counselling on family members of sudden death victims.
The aim of this study is to assess and survey the quality of the process required to diagnose brain death in adult patients. This study of adult patients diagnosed brain dead or suspected ...
Infant mortality is still relevant despite the improvement and the accessibility of hospital care. Premature birth are two fold higher than in metropolitan France. Some factors has been su...
This qualitative study explores bereavement experiences with an assisted death. Thematic analysis of data from interviews with 22 people who had a family member die under Oregon's Death with Dignity A...
Although studies suggest that most people prefer to die at home, not enough is known about place of death patterns by cause of death considering sociodemographic factors. The objective of this study w...
Apoptosis had been considered as a sole form of cell death in living body. However, non-apoptotic forms of cell death have recently attracted more attention, and about 20 forms of non-apoptotic cell d...
Brain death, or the determination of death by neurological criteria, has been described as a legal fiction. Legal fictions are devices by which the law treats two analogous things (in this case, biolo...
The coping with death competence is of great importance for palliative care professionals, who face daily exposure to death. It can keep them from suffering compassion fatigue and burnout, thus enhanc...
A conserved protein interaction domain of the death domain superfamily that is structurally similar to the DEATH EFFECTOR DOMAIN and CASPASE RECRUITMENT DOMAIN. Death domains bind each other to form oligomers and occur on DEATH DOMAIN RECEPTORS, where they are required for APOPTOSIS signaling and non-apoptotic functions.
The death of a FETUS of GESTATIONAL AGE 28 weeks or more, or the death of a live-born INFANT less than 28 days of age.
A homotypic protein interaction module of the death domain superfamily that is composed of a bundle of six alpha-helices. The death effector domain shares sequence and structural similarities with the DEATH DOMAIN and CASPASE RECRUITMENT DOMAIN. It occurs in many proteins with essential functions in APOPTOSIS.
The abrupt and unexplained death of an apparently healthy infant under one year of age, remaining unexplained after a thorough case investigation, including performance of a complete autopsy, examination of the death scene, and review of the clinical history. (Pediatr Pathol 1991 Sep-Oct;11(5):677-84)
A family of cell surface receptors that signal via a conserved domain that extends into the cell CYTOPLASM. The conserved domain is referred to as a death domain due to the fact that many of these receptors are involved in signaling APOPTOSIS. Several DEATH DOMAIN RECEPTOR SIGNALING ADAPTOR PROTEINS can bind to the death domains of the activated receptors and through a complex series of interactions activate apoptotic mediators such as CASPASES.
