An intensive care nurse from Swansea has published an academic book about near death experiences following 10 years of research. Penny Sartori, who works at Singleton and Morriston Hospitals in Swansea, has 15 accounts, mainly from heart attack patients, of near-death experiences. They include out-of-body occurrences, reports of a tunnel leading to a bright light and meeting dead loved ones. The book, costing £85, is intended for academic study and college libraries. Ms Sartori decided to launch her formal study in 1998 after working closely with critically-ill patients throughout the 1990s and discovering there was very little reference data available for nurses and other healthcare workers. She spent five years compiling the study, three years writing it up and two years preparing it for publication. The book is called Near Death Experiences of Hospitalized Intensive Care Patients, a Five Year Clinical Study. She found that people who went through out-of-body experiences floated above themselves and were able to accurately recount what had happened in the room even though they were unconscious and their eyes were closed. "People also reported travelling down a tunnel towards a bright light," she said. "Some reported meeting a figure who told them their time had not yet come, and others said they met dead relatives and communicated with them by telepathy."
