Updated regulations regarding Declarations of Death Upon The Basis of Neurological Criteria were adopted by the Board of Medical Examiners.

On May 7, 2007 the New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners adopted regulations (N.J.A.C. 13:35-6A.1 -7 ) updating the methods by which brain death should be diagnosed and confirmed. Recognizing the significance of technical advances in the field of neuroimaging the new regulations allow confirmatory objective tests which measure intra cranial circulation. The updated regulations also further delineate the speciality training and/or credentialing required of physicians authorized to declare death on the basis of neurological criteria.

The updated regulation is available for your review at the link listed below. http://www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/adoption/bmeado57.htm.
