I See Dead People: Dreams and Visions of the Dying | Dr. Christopher Kerr | TEDxBuffalo

Dr. Christopher Kerr speaks at a 2015 TEDx event Buffalo, New York.

Dr. Christopher W. Kerr is the Chief Medical Officer at The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, where he has worked since 1999. His background in research has evolved from bench science towards the human experience of illness as witnessed from the bedside, specifically patients’ dreams and visions at the end of life. Although medically ignored, these near universal experiences often provide comfort and meaning as well as insight into the life led and the death anticipated.


This is very interesting to me. What do you think of it?

Just watched and found it very interesting indeed. Working in the medical field years ago (with the elderly) there were definitely things I experienced that have stayed with me.

1. Right before a patient passes away, they typically have a sudden quick "getting better" phase. This phase always follows a decline, so the patients family gets a false sense of "they are going to get better and pull out of this". It would sadden me a bit, as I knew that this meant the patient was going to pass away in the next day or two. Every time. Yet, you didn't want to dash the families hope that the patient was going to get better. But in my own life, whenever a sick family member had that quick and sudden "getting better", I knew the end was coming.

2. Death always comes in threes. Always. I became familiar with this when I was working in a nursing home at age 19. If one patient died, two more always died within the next few days. Always. And I still find that to be true today. It doesn't have to be your own family members but it could be a friends family member, one of yours and then a coworkers family member. But it's always in three.
