As medical technologies advance in todays market, ideas about when death occurs may have to be re-evaluated in the ability to restore a person to vitality after longer periods of apparent death. The lack of electrical brain activity will not be enough to consider someone clinically dead. Therefore, the concept of information-theoretic death has been a suggestion or a better means of defining when true death occurs, though this has few practical applications outside of the field of cryonics.

Today, where a definition of the moment of death is first, doctors and coroners usually turn to “brain death” or “biological death” to define an individual as being clinically dead; Individuals are considered dead when the electrical activity in their brain stops. It is presumed that an end of electrical activity indicates the end of consciousness. Suspension of consciousness must be permanent, and not transient, as occurs during sleep stages, and especially a coma. In the case of sleep, EEGs can easily tell the difference.
