If the results of this study hold up then the definition of Death and as a relt the Time of Death need to be changed. Instead of "flatline for heart beat" it should be changed to "Flatline for Brain activity".
Second thought/idea: Perhaps the old scifi movies (Donavan's Brain" , "Colossus of New York") may not be too far from truth and reality. Just a thought.

    They need a blinded test where patient interviews of what they heard are compared with recordings of the near-death event. If the patient remembers a bunch of random things, they're likely to get a random hit with something that happened. If the patient remembers things specific to their case, it's possible they heard it somewhere else or just dreamed words that would be logical in that scenario. If someone says, "I heard them say no pulse, no respiration." after learning he had been saved from near death, that's hardly evidence that he must have been conscious.
