a Neurologist or Neurosurgeon as they have an elevated awareness of how to assess CNS function in the presence of mechanical supports.
1) No evidence of drug induced coma, hypothermia, or other reversable cause of coma.
2) No evidence of Cortical, Sub-cortical, or Brain stem activity by expert exam.
