Common causes of death worldwide, such as heart disease, chronic lung disease and cancer are often treatable. These treatments not only delay death, but also prolong the dying process. This slowing down makes it easier to recognize common signs that death is approaching.
I have never called for help because my 2-year-old son was missing. I never had to hear the voice on the phone ask ... "Do you have a pool?" And knowing that my child may be floating face-down in it. I was the voice asking it and hearing her cries as she found the lifeless body of her son two feet under water.

An innovative study into the final moments of BC hospice patients has shown that, even when a dying person has lost all ability to move or communicate, they may still be able to hear and understand their surroundings.
On the first test, participants were asked to click a mouse whenever they heard an out-of-place tone pattern. On the second test, the now-unresponsive patient was simply asked to concentrate on the task as much as was possible.
But thus far, some of the only evidence to this has come from patients who have undergone near-death experiences, usually after a cardiac arrest.
