Title Two cardiac arrests, one medical team
Date 1982
Description The most painful of all medical care decisions concerns life-preserving measures which, because of limited resources, require certain individuals to be excluded in favor of others. How does one weigh the relative rights of individuals to such care? Whenever possible, decisions to withhold lifesaving therapy should be made in advance. but in the absence of a clear expression that lifesaving care should be withheld, the person in charge must assume that care was intended.
