I forgot all about this thread and my desire to look at the Lancet article in depth...dissecting the study. I will try to put that on my plate for later but I will say...I have seen much death, and several who were coded and brought back. I worked in the ER for three years and never received a report of a NDE from any patient. Obviously, that could fall under population bias...but interesting to me none the less. I am curious though (as I tend to be a natural skeptic) why some get these NDEs, why some don't, and why the experience can be so different from one to the other.
