99% death results from cardiac death where the cardiovascular system stops functioning. The heart in this case does not beat any longer and the chest goes flat without any motions noted. However, the individual can still be 1% live when the brain cells are still functioning. This percentage of life is contributed or marked by responsiveness and the presence of a reflexes. When a neurologist tests on the breath of the dead individual using a ventilator, positive results are attained. In this condition, the patient is therefore  declared 1% alive but 99 percent dead.
