It usually means they have less than four hours to live.” “’He doesn't make too many mistakes. He seems to understand when patients are about to die,’" said Dr. David Dosa in an interview. He describes the phenomenon in a poignant essay in Thursday's issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.’ (AP Photo/Stew Milne)
