If a doctor restarts your heart, do you remember dying?
Just wondering.

Prince of Pennsylvania Avenue
...lack of brain function qualifies "death"...not cardiac function
....once blood flow is interrupted to the brain, ischemic death occurs
....lack of brain function requires nothing to happen...therefore nothing can be remembered

no you can't because if you're dead, you're dead and you are under anesthesia

u see the ligh but get dragged away

I have restarted a good number of them. Some people remember passing out. Some don't. After your heart stops, you're real sick, and it can affect what you remember of the last moments. A good many of them whose heart quit (actually went into fibrillation - shocking doesn't do anything to a completely stilled heart) remember vividly being shocked. It hurts. Of course, with a lot of those people, their heart was restarted to a working rhythm, but they did not regain consciousness again and later died.

Tristin S
no because you're passed out when you die.

u see JESUS CHRIST..i cant wait

I had mine restarted several times. I do not remember a thing. Although I did have a really weird dream 3 times in a row during the time I was "gone". I spent a few days in a drug induced coma after having open heart surgery and 3 cardiac arrests so I could not tell you when I had this dream but it was about dying and I was in hospital and burning-up (really hot). When I woke they had me under an icy blanket to protect my brain from damage.

I agree, that is a good question...

no. you are unconscious at the time

A lot of researchers have studied near death experiences. Some of them have been when someones heart had to be jump started.

A book called "life after life" by Raymond Moody was the first major discussion of that topic.

wow, great Q

Read the book 90 Minutes in Heaven
It is amazing! It should answer your question and if it doesn't atleast you will know what happens.

I was visiting my friend on a neighbouring ward one night when one of her patients suffered a cardiac arrest. I was doing the cardiac massage when we needed a certain drug which my friend didn't have on her ward as it wasn't a cardiac ward.

I knew I had it in my ward so she took over the cardiac massage while i ran to my own ward to get what we needed.

I had been kneeling up on the patient's bed doing the cardiac massage and had been up there for some time so when I started to run my foot went numb where I had obviously been in ssuch a position that my circulation had been cut off.

i made it out of the ward i was in and as i got through the doors of my own ward my foot went over and I fell. I quickly got up and continued running and thought no more about it. Where it happened absolutely nobody could have seen me.

To cut a long story short, we were successful and got the patient back and he was transferred to my ward (Coronary care unit)

He slept for the rest of the night and was still a bit woozy when I went off duty the following morning.

When I went back that night, he was sitting up in bed drinking a cup of tea. I went to say hello to him and he asked if I was alright.

Surprised i asked him why. He said that he was concerned because he had followed me along the corridor and saw me fall.

Obviously he didn't mean physically because at the time the nurses and doctors were still working on him, and there was absolutely no way that anyone else knew about it because even I had forgotten the incident. he said that he wondered why I had stopped working on him and ran away so he decided to follow me to see where I was going.

Make of it what you will, i the only thing I definitely know for sure is that nobody saw what happened and only I knew about it.

Love MelX

some people claim to recall, the proverbial dark tunnel with the bright light at the end... most do not recall anything.

I died while giving birth, twice actually. I vaguely remember the chaos that was going on around me.
