Default Near Death Study

Many reports of near-death experiences sound the same: a welcoming white light and a replay of memories.

Now scientists aim to study what really happens to the brain and consciousness when someone is on the verge of dying.

In a new study called AWARE (AWAreness during REsuscitation), doctors will examine patients in hospitals in Europe and North America who reach a state called cardiac arrest.

"Contrary to popular perception, death is not a specific moment," said leader of the study Dr. Sam Parnia of the University of Southampton in England. "It is a process that begins when the heart stops beating, the lungs stop working and the brain ceases functioning a medical condition termed cardiac arrest, which from a biological viewpoint is synonymous with clinical death."
So it's not actual death, just clinical death so it doesn't really answer the afterlife question but it still is an interesting study.

All this is so scary, there are cases of clinical deaths, but do these people revive and survive this kind of phase.What are the exact chances of survival of this cardiac arrest?

If the patient gets attended by the trained staff there are 10 to 20 % chances of survival.Lot of things matter in these cases-what kind of medical history does the patient has is the most important one.
