Near-death experiences are usually reduced to mere anecdotal evidence, but this book attempts to produce an objective account of these experiences within the UK hospital system. Sartori, an Intensive Therapy Unit nurse in Wales, avoids metaphysical explanations and sticks to the facts of each case, drawing parallels and consistencies in each experience. While heavy on statistical data, this book should appeal to anyone with an interest in near-death experiences.
Dr. Sartori has worked as a nurse in the Intensive Therapy Unit since 1993. She was awarded a Ph.D. by the University of Wales, Lampeter for her extensive research into the phenomenon of near-death experience.
