Left MCA stem occlusion. Patient deteriorated after 24 hrs of admission. At present pupils dilated and fixed. What about the ocular movements,swallowing reflex.Pl check for brain stem signs.If brain stem signs are absent and the pt is deeply unconcious,one can diagnose brain death clinically. Brain death is a clinical diagnosis..Nothing can be done at this stage
