Clinical death is a phenomenon in which pulse rate and beating of heart stop their function. In such type of death, various body cells and organs remain to live for few hours after the death. Hence transplantation of organs is possible just after the death. Whereas, biological death occurs due to the degeneration of tissue or cells. In such type of death, organs become dead just after the death and thus, organs are not used for the transplantation.
