This study was published in Palliative Medicine magazine last year. Researchers are seeking to detect the frequency of ELDVs by looking at their subjective and subjective meaning, and considering those factors in relation to near-death experiences.

Unlike other studies of ELDVs, focusing only on feedback from relatives and health care providers, the Canisius University team interviewed 66 patients who were cared for in the last days of their lives in the camp. poor. Every day, they were asked about the content, frequency and comfort of the dreamed ELDVs.

The majority said that they met with illusions or dreams at least once a day . Half happen while sleeping, and all claim that those ELDVs feel real. Most are related to living or dead friends and relatives. However, the number is more related to the deceased.
