A TEDX Talk by Dr. Thomas Fleischmann

Dr. Fleischmann sees dead people. Hundreds and thousands of them. To put it clearly, he has seen over 2,000 humans die. But also brought back to life. In his talk, he shares the near death experiences ("Nahtoderfahrungen") he witnessed as an emergency physician and tells us about one of the most drilling questions of the humankind: how it is to die.

Thomas Fleischmann has been an emergency physician since 1982. Since 2005, he has worked as the director of emergency medical units in Germany and Switzerland. As well as being a fellow of the British College of Emergency Medicine and the European Society for Emergency Medicine, Dr. Fleischmann holds a Master of Health Business Administration. In addition to frequently holding speeches about emergency medicine topics, he is also the editor of two textbooks on emergency medicine and has written many academic papers on the topic.
