Known for Research near-death experiences

Penny Sartori (PhD) is a British medical researcher in the field of near-death studies.


Sartori worked as an intensive care nurse for seventeen years, during which time she cared for many patients who were close to death. As a result of these experiences, she began researching near-death experiences, culminating in the publication of her monograph The Near-Death Experiences of Hospitalized Intensive Care Patients: A Five Year Clinical Study,[1][2] which was published by the Edwin Mellen Press in 2008. Her work also gained her a PhD in 2005. She now works as a lecturer and consultant.[3][4]

Many of the phenomena reported appear religious in nature.[5]

Dr. Sartori's current book, The Wisdom Of Near-Death Experiences, explores the veracity of Near Death Experiences more in depth.
