    at the very last = at the very last moment?

    I was at his bedside at the very last.

    This sentence is taken from Collins Dictionary. The Chinese translation of the dictionary gives the sentence meaning something like 'at the very last moment (when he died)'.

    Does 'at the very last' equal 'at the very last moment'?

    Thank you in advance.

    No. It means you were there the time at which his life ended.
