The Journey

Active dying is the final phase of the dying process. While the pre-active stage lasts for about three weeks, the active stage of dying lasts roughly three days. By definition, actively dying patients are very close to death, and exhibit many signs and symptoms of near-death.

The Final Days

In the last days or hours before death, people’s breathing can become unusually shallow or deep. … At the end, some people have a so-called “death rattle” when breathing. This happens because the person is unable to cough up or swallow secretions that build up in the chest and throat.
