After learning that he needed life-saving treatment for fulminant hepatic failure, friends of Patna-based medical student Vishwajeet Dixit organised a collection to fly him to Delhi by air taxi and fund his treatment.
Study Purpose: This study examined adult drug treatment courts. Drug treatment courts are intended to reduce the recidivism of drug-involved offenders by changing their drug-use habits. These courts provide a connection between the criminal justice and treatment systems by combining treatment with structured sanctions and rewards. In drug courts the presiding judge oversees the progress of addicted offenders through treatment, drug testing, supervision, and compliance management. Previous research provided little information on the nature of drug courts treatment services or on their impact on client outcomes. This study attempted to address these issues by examining the delivery of treatment services and offender outcomes in four drug courts. The following specific research questions were addressed: (1) What types of treatment services are offered by each drug court? (2) Is treatment delivery integrated into the drug court? (3) How do the philosophies and interventions of treatment counselors ...

Finally, as a clinical practice, weight loss surgery is somewhat newly chartered territory, so each patient is treated with extra care. "For us, safety is paramount, and we wouldnt develop this program if it werent safe and truly life saving for a section of the population that didnt really have targeted programs in New England," says Pratt. "The concept of pediatric transplant surgery went through almost the same path we are going through. There was controversy surrounding pediatric transplants until it was accepted that it was the only lifesaving treatment for organ failure and should be provided for children as well as adults. With education, awareness and time we can make great progress in adolescent bariatric surgery as well. It is lifesaving treatment and should be provided for adolescents as well as adults suffering from obesity." ...
Data presented today demonstrate that there are considerable restrictions in the reimbursement of DAA therapy across European countries, particularly with respect to the severity of liver fibrosis and prescribing by specialists. The study, presented at The International Liver Congress™ 2017 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, showed that there was evidence that some countries were not following the most recent European HCV treatment guidelines, published by EASL in 2016.
Physicians caring for patients with sepsis may soon have a new safe and cost-effective treatment for this life-threatening illness. Research led by Dr. Karel Tyml and his colleagues at The University of Western Ontario and Lawson Health Research Institute have found that vitamin C can not only prevent the onset of sepsis, but can reverse the disease.. Sepsis is caused by a bacterial infection that can begin anywhere in your body. Your immune system goes into overdrive, overwhelming normal processes in your blood. The result is that small blood clots form, blocking blood flow to vital organs. This can lead to organ failure. Babies, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems are most likely to get sepsis. But even healthy people can become deathly ill from the disease.. According to Dr. Tyml, a professor at Westerns Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, patients with severe sepsis have a high mortality rate, nearly 40 percent, because there is no effective treatment.. "There are many ...
Its almost like gardening," Leen said.. A few years ago, researchers could grow protective cells in three months to help one person fight one virus. That kind of research is typically done at research centers like Baylor College of Medicine using state, federal and private grant money.. But a three-month process to help a single person with a single virus is not commercially viable. Leen knew she needed to develop an off-the-shelf, easy-to-manufacture therapy that could help almost any patient. Coming up with a commercial therapy, though, is beyond the purview of academia, and many promising ideas never make it past this stage because researchers dont have the financial support, the expertise or the business knowledge to form a company.. "We can accommodate our own patients, and weve done that for many years, but there are many patients across the country and worldwide," Leen said. "Its hard to get funding to continue to provide that to patients because there is little research to do. We had ...
A little Kiwi girl currently living in Texas with her Kiwi parents is unable to live in New Zealand because the medicine she needs to survive is not available to her here.
My daughter was born in a hospital in a Suburb of Seattle in 2001. Back then I didnt know anything about Stem Cells and cord blood. As another poster mentioned (Capt_Ender) when having a baby theres a lot of stuff going on and donating cord blood or stem cells is the last thing on your mind. There was a bucket in the room for the *left overs* if you will and they asked us to sign a waiver *donating* our stem cells, left over placental tissue and cord blood. I had no idea what was going on and neither did my daughters mother. It was incredibly confusing and was never brought up any time prior to then. So A) if they could take it for free in 2001, Im pretty sure 16 years later they can do it for free now. B) There was a lot of political b.s. denouncing (from a religious aspect) the immoral practice of saving cord blood. Then it went quiet for years till I read this article. Pretty sad that we have something that is considered by many to be medical waste that can save so many lives, provide ...

DNT: Do-Not-Transfuse. This order is written when an individual has declined blood transfusions and/or the use of other specific blood products because the use of transfusions will not meet his or her health care goals.. The Lifecare Durable Medical Protection Orders booklet is designed for use only by individuals already in extremely poor health, severe enough to have discussed and received one (or more) of the above orders from a licensed medical practitioner. Its purpose is to provide an ongoing durable record of these orders. Individual orders, as outlined above, are virtually always temporary (usually expiring within days) and valid only in the current care facility or resident setting. If discharged, transferred, or in the home, existing orders simply expire. It can then be very difficult to reinstate the prior orders in any timely way. Thus, the Durable Medical Protection Orders booklet provides an enduring record of standing (permanent) medical orders, when signed by the issuing ...

Current practice in most neonatal units in the UK is usually to resuscitate a baby if the outcome is uncertain and provide intensive care until the outlook is clearer. However, as life-saving treatments can be invasive and may cause suffering, it is difficult to know whether this is the right course of action if the baby is unlikely to benefit.. For this reason, the Working Party gave careful consideration to whether or when intensive care should be withheld from babies born extremely prematurely. We concluded that the considerable variability in outcome for such babies meant that a complete ban on intensive care would be an unjustifiable infringement of the interests both of the child and their parents. However, clearer guidance on whether to give intensive care to extremely premature babies would help parents and doctors make more informed decisions about treatment in individual situations.. We propose below a set of guidelines to provide a basis of discussion for professional bodies and ...

In chapters 10-23, the range of currently available devices is reviewed with updates on the most up-to-date clinical experiences based on recently published outcomes. Chapters 24-30 describe the current state of the art in perioperative strategies for achieving long-term success. Finally, chapters 31-46 outline the myriad of clinical challenges that often occur in the postoperative period, including ...
To the Editor:. As breast cancer continues to pose a major health risk for women, we can ill afford to engage in semantic arguments about what we should call cancer.. A simple name change for ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast should not unravel decades of clinical trial work dealing with its management. Simply put, we cannot predict which lesions will progress (the majority) versus those that are unlikely to progress (a small subset, primarily in older patients).. What the medical community needs is better class prediction based upon a functional understanding of the individual genomic mechanisms involved. Downgrading all ductal carcinoma in situ to indolent lesions of epithelial origin or pre-cancer makes us fear that insurers will stop paying for lifesaving treatments like radiation therapy, anti-estrogen therapy or, on occasion, mastectomies.. It is the physicians responsibility to chart a critical course of treatment for his patients based on each womans circumstances. Our best chance ...

SPOTLIGHT ON CELL THERAPY RESEARCH Scientists developing new cell therapy methods for the treatment of disorders such as sickle cell disease or leukemia need to consider how their culture conditions may affect the success of their translational research. Hematopoietic Cell Therapy: Where are we now? Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) have long been used to provide lifesaving treatments for patients with malignant and non-malignant hematological disorders. While originally these treatments took the form of allogeneic bone marrow transplants, more recent breakthroughs in the field have provided cell therapy researchers with methods for correcting genetic mutations in a patients own cells to provide an autologous source of HSCs for transplant, or to expand cells ex vivo and extend the potential of allogeneic cell sources. The variety of new tools available for genetic manipulation now include lentiviral-based gene delivery, and gene editing using CRISPR/Cas9, zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs) or ...

One of the most common signs associated with sudden death in baby rabbits is diarrhea, which can appear very quickly and kill in a matter of hours. Thus, it is of vital importance that any baby rabbit showing signs of lethargy, inappetence (not wanting to eat), or runny stool be taken immediately to an experienced rabbit veterinarian for emergency, life-saving treatment. Delaying even for an hour or two can mean the difference between life and death.. If you cannot find a rabbit-experienced veterinarian, but have an emergency clinic that is willing to accept help from unknown persons on the internet (that would be me), then please print this Emergency Treatment Protocol for Diarrhea in Infant Rabbits. This is a protocol I developed while trying to save wild baby cottontails and hares, and it is the only thing I have found that does save them. I hope no one reading this ever needs it…but it is here, just in case.. True diarrhea is more prevalent in baby rabbits than in adults, especially if the ...
Approximately 1 in 10,000 people in Western industrialized countries relies on dialysis to replace impaired kidney function or kidney failure. The more than 300,000 Americans, and 30,000 Canadians, who have their blood cleaned of toxins and metabolic waste, can thank leeches for the invention of this life-saving treatment. Georg Haas pioneered experimental dialysis treatments on animals at the University Hospital of Internal Medicine in Geising Germany. Preventing blood from clotting in the dialysis tubes was (and still is) critical to the success of the procedure. All of Haas early experimental work was accomplished using crude leech extracts to prevent clotting. Unfortunately, the unpurified extracts proved toxic and leeches were hard to come by in light of over-exploitation during the latter half of the 19th century ...

The purpose of this research is to understand how to apply cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) to women with small artery heart disease by looking at the CMRs of women without heart disease. The investigators will study 40 women with no heart disease to learn more about the usefulness of CMR.. Women suffer more than men from this disorder of the small vessels compared to the large vessels. This results in delays in diagnosis, missed opportunities for treatment, and likely contributes to the increased death rate from heart disease in women compared to men. Current testing for small vessel disease is invasive and not performed routinely and women are often not initiated on appropriate lifesaving treatment. New imaging and noninvasive technology exists that may improve this situation. Imaging techniques such as cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) can now show the inner layers of the heart where the small vessel abnormality and myocardial ischemia exist. These techniques, while promising, ...

A bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant is a potentially life-saving treatment for patients fighting blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma as well as other blood diseases like sickle cell. A transplant replaces the patients unhealthy blood stem cells with healthy ones from a donor like you. Prior to transplant, a patient undergoes high dosages of chemotherapy and possibly radiation therapy to destroy all the diseased cells in their body as well as their immune system so that it cant attack the donated cells after transplant. During transplant, the donated cells are infused into the patient and move through the bloodstream into the bone marrow, where they begin to grow and produce new healthy blood cells in a process called engraftment.. ...

Tribal courts are courts of general jurisdiction which continue to have broad criminal jurisdiction. The general rule is that states have no jurisdiction over the activities of Indians and tribes in Indian country. Public Law 280 (PL 280) created an exception to this rule in certain states. The U.S. Congress gave these states criminal jurisdiction over all offenses involving Native Americans on tribal lands. Through PL 280, the federal government transferred to these states the federal governments criminal jurisdiction over Indian country, and it opened state courts up as forums for civil litigation that had previously only been able to be brought in tribal or federal courts. The effect of PL 280 is that in many areas state and tribal courts share jurisdiction.. Links to related online resources are listed below.

The patient safety movement currently focuses on errors for which there are available solutions,23, 24 such as automated prescription entry,25, 26 and on other errors that are assumed to be most common or harmful. There is, however, limited epidemiologic research with which to determine the latter. High-quality, generalizable data are lacking,27 and the definition of error itself is argued.28, 29. Most efforts to quantify errors focus on downstream events, predominantly errors in diagnosis and treatment. Such mistakes, viewed in isolation from their causal origins, appear as clinical misjudgments30, 31 and inspire interventions designed around skill building,32, 33 yet the underlying issue may not be misjudgment but the quality of the data on which the judgments are based. The policy importance of overlooking proximal causes is great, because physicians, health care systems, and policy makers, operating from inadequate evidence and the misperceptions it creates may be inattentive to the errors ...
In an article published in the January 2004 edition of CIPA entitled Patent litigation - a costly business? Gordon Harris suggested that the reason why the English courts are losing business to their continental competitors (and in particular, the German and French courts) is not because of the cost of litigation here but rather because English Judges more readily find patents invalid for obviousness.. The article was written in immediate response to comments made by Mr Justice Laddie in his judgment of November 2003 in Merck v Generics regarding the cost of that action but also against the backdrop of Gordon Harris own experience in the SEB v DeLonghi litigation in which his clients appeal against the finding of obviousness made by Mr Justice Pumfrey was dismissed by the Court of Appeal in July 2003.. In the polemical spirit in which the article was written, I explain below why I call into question certain propositions put forward by Gordon Harris as the basis for his criticism of the ...

Spatt, District Judge. [INTRODUCTION]. This is an action for breach of contract arising out of an alleged agreement between Genpharm Inc. ("Genpharm" or the "Plaintiff"), and Pliva-Lachema A.S. ("Pliva-Lachema"), to manufacture and supply Genpharm with a pharmaceutical ingredient used in the production of warfarin sodium tablets, the generic form of the anticoagulent drug marketed under the brand name "Coumadin." Currently pending before the Court are several motions by Pliva-Lachema and Pliva d.d. ("Pliva") (collectively, the "Defendants") to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction under Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(1); lack of personal jurisdiction under Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(2); or in the alternative forum non conveniens.. BACKGROUND. I. The Parties. Genpharm is a corporation located in Ontario, Canada, in the business of developing, marketing, and manufacturing generic pharmaceutical products. Pliva-Lachema, formerly known as Lachema before it was acquired by Pliva in 1999, is a corporation ...
More courts are recognizing that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act ("CDA") is a misguided and unworkable law and construing it accordingly. The 9th Circuit recently found in Fair Housing Council v. Roomates.com that when an ISP actively encourages or allows some damaging third party content, the ISP can face liability in spite of the CDA. Now the U.S. District Court for Connecticut has held that Section 230 creates an affirmative defense which cannot be decided on a motion to dismiss. The matter, entitled Doctors Associates, Inc. v. QIP Holders, LLC, makes it more difficult for websites to have a case dismissed without allowing plaintiffs opportunity to obtain some discovery. The matter involves third-party created videos on QIP Holders website comparing Quiznos® Subs with Subway® sandwiches. Some of the third party content calls into question the prevalance of meat on a Subway sandwich compared to a Quiznos sandwich.. The Court found that the plaintiff has requested that the ...
Big pharma is heralded for inventing new cures, but the courts are clogged with dangerous drug cases. Most of the world has used plant-based remedies for hundreds if not thousands of years. Here, theres plenty of skepticism, but Chris Kilham, professor of ethnobotany and explorer in residence at the University of Massachusetts, says herbal medicines are much safer than synthetic drugs.
OPBP has recently completed a Report investigating the commercial nature of human trafficking as justifying an exception to diplomatic immunity. The Report engages in a comparative study of twelve jurisdictions by probing four broad issues: the prohibition of human trafficking, the commercial nature of human trafficking, incorporation of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and instances of human trafficking falling under the commercial activity exception of the l961 Vienna Convention.. The report confirms that human trafficking is a grave violation of human rights. Its prohibition has expanded on the international, regional and national level and a growing number of implementation mechanisms have been developed. There are authorities to support the commercial dimension of human trafficking and successful invocations of the commercial activity exception (Zimbabwe, Italy). However, national courts are divided on the question of whether the commercial nature of human trafficking ...
so, according to the US, if they charge someone with a crime, it doesnt matter what the crime is, where the person lives, whether the crime was committed on US soil or what evidence they may or may not have, every country in the world is just supposed to accept what they say? the person(s) charged are supposed to accept that they have done wrong and allow themselves to be dragged to the US to stand trial and not even know what evidence is going to be used against them and cannot, therefore, present any sort of defense? local courts are supposed to forgo their own legal system to accommodate the US demands, even if that means the person charged could be given a long/life prison sentence, even executed but could easily be innocent of all charges? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? Dotcom may be guilty of something, but everyone has to know what the charges and evidence being used is and allowed to defend themselves ...
Its been 7 months for me now and Im pretty sure my eyes have stabilised. The ghost isnt noticeable at all in bright sunlight, things just arent as sharp as they should be. As light decreases it becomes more noticeable. I find green lights (eg traffic lights) and blue lighting the worst. Also deteriorates the more tired I am which, funnily enough, is usually when theres no sun so that compounds the problem. The ghosting is everywhere not just light sources. Street lights, signs, the moon etc - the lines on a tennis court are pretty bad from the cheap seats ...
The Trump administration and the courts are building an edifice of exclusion, proving that even as white numbers decline white power marches forward.
Despite efforts to combat it, Utahs meth problem continues to grow - especially for women, reports the Salt Lake Tribune. For five years, meth has been the top illegal drug of choice for Utahns entering public treatment. For women it surpasses even alcohol, the traditional front-runner, making it the only drug in history to have its female users outnumber males. Nearly half the women in treatment have children. Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. has proposed investing $2 million in drug courts […]
While gossip mavens love to write about or read about the sexual and other private peccadillos of presidents of the United States, there is another aspect of presidential private lives that is much more pertinent in consideration of executive performance in our political history. That is the question of the medical (including the psychological) condition of the chief executive/commander-in-chief of the national armed forces, and the historical occurrence of secrecy and cover-up when a president is seriously or grievously ill.. Most of the time, the secrets come to light only after the term, or after the death, of a president.. The first presidential medical crisis was not a secret, nor a cover-up, but a case of colossal misjudgment. On inauguration day, March 4, 1841, newly-elected President William Henry Harrison (nicknamed "Tippecanoe" after the famous battle he had won as a general) decided to deliver his very long inaugural address on a bitterly cold Washington, DC day without an overcoat. ...

I have at times driven my car way to fast around corners (just me in the car) as I like the sensation of speed and on a few occasions I truly felt that It might not end well. When I am driving like this my mind is focused and I am in what I call the zone, heightened awareness and on the job. I know the extent of my misjudgment by the tingling that starts in my hands and works it way up my arms and its very similar if not the same as the sensations that I sometimes get just before a WILD transition - I joke that its the spirit getting ready to leave body as it wants to protect itself and leave before its too late ...

In this lecture in the NIH Medicine Mind the Gap series, presenters propose that there is a pressing need for "scientific equity," or equality in the amount of scientific knowledge that is produced to understand both the potential causes and solutions to many health inequities. The lecture will examine the issue of scientific equity, using prevention interventions as illustrative examples. In addition, key strategies for promoting scientific equity, including conducting more implementation research, utilizing adaptive intervention research designs, and promoting collaborative data synthesis work will be described. http://prevention.nih.gov ...

DENVER - The ACLU of Colorado filed a federal class action lawsuit this morning challenging the Colorado Department of Corrections systematic denial of life-saving treatment to more than 2,200 prisoners suffering from chronic Hepatitis C.. "Colorado has an immense public health crisis in its prisons. At least one in every nine prisoners suffers from Hepatitis C, and complications from the disease kill nearly as many Coloradans in custody every year as drug and alcohol abuse, homicide, and suicide combined," said ACLU of Colorado Legal Director Mark Silverstein. "Highly-effective treatment is available that could prevent deaths and fight the spread of the virus, but DOCs cruel and arbitrary standards deny that treatment to all but a select few prisoners, in violation of established medical standards and the Eighth Amendment.". Hepatitis C is a life-threatening, communicable disease that attacks the liver, causing diminished liver function, cirrhosis, and liver failure. It is the most deadly ...

Radiofrequency ablation is today the most common invasive technique used to treat thyroid pancreas, bone, liver, kidneys, and lung cancer. It is an intricate procedure done by highly experienced Interventional Radiologists. In the US, for instance, the Austin radiofrequency ablation clinic in Texas has been attested. This is due to their high patient survival rates.. What is Radiofrequency Ablation?. If you or your loved one has cancer, then youve probably heard the doctor say that surgeries are, at times, not an option. This usually happens when the patients malignant tumor is at an early stage or is in locations that cant be surgically removable. Other times the patient is unable to afford the cost of surgical resection of the tumor.. Radiofrequency ablation involves the application of a high heat current through the tumor to kill the diseased cells.. How is it done?. Four key stages are followed to ensure a successful radiofrequency ablation.. Preoperative Evaluation. This is the first ...
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a therapeutic procedure the administration of which requires placing the whole body of the patients inside a compartment where the pressure is fixed at a level that is considerably higher than the normal atmospheric pressure. In the hyperbaric chamber the patient breathes 100% pure oxygen. This therapy is used worldwide as an aid to various surgical procedures and medical emergencies.. The service of this therapy is sought to supply oxygen to the tissues and cells that fail to respond to the normal atmospheric level of oxygen. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is premised upon the hypotheses where the increment of atmospheric pressure leads to the intensification of the available oxygen without facilitating any extra oxygen supply. This whole therapy is based on Henrys gas pressure assumption which relates that the rate and the amount at which a gas dissolves in a liquid is directly proportional to the pressure that is exerted on the gaseous element.. Blood cells differ in ...
Major New Mexico courts that kept records of genealogical value were established as follows: 1598-1847: The Alcalde Ordinario (mayors courts) and Audiencia (courts of appeals) were statewide courts in Mexico that handled civil and criminal cases. During several periods New Mexico was under the jurisdiction of courts in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Durango, Chihuahua, and Parral. A few existing records are in the New Mexico Records Center and Archives, or in various archives in Mexico. 1846-1850: Prefects court was a statewide court that handled civil and criminal cases. 1846-1850: Circuit courts were county-wide courts established during the military government of New Mexico to handle civil and criminal cases. 1850-present: District courts are district-wide courts that serve as the major trial courts and have jurisdiction over naturalization records, civil cases including tax and insanity matters, criminal cases, chancery cases, and some appeals. 1800s: Magistrates courts are city-wide courts ...

A few observations on Terri s Law passed by Congress last weekend in response to some of the subsequent pronouncements by talking heads who should know better:. 1. The law is constitutional. Article III of the Constitution vests the judicial power of the Untied States in a supreme court and such inferior courts as Congress may establish from time to time. The lower federal courts are created by Congress and the jurisdiction all federal courts is determined by Congress as part of the system of checks and balances. The Judiciary Act of 1789 created the first lower courts and Congress has tinkered with them ever since in terms of the number of courts and the jurisdiction. The Fourteenth Amendment ensures equal protection for all citizens and the Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1871 provide federal remedies for those whose rights have been violated by state actors.. 2. The judgments of state courts are not always beyond review by the federal courts. The writ of habeas corpus exists to challenge those ...
The Judiciary of Portugal is a system of courts that together constitute one of the four organs of Sovereignty as defined by the Portuguese Constitution. The courts are independent from the other three Portuguese organs of Sovereignty (President of the Republic, Government and Assembly of the Republic). The Portuguese courts are divided by four independent orders, each of which corresponds to the separate Constitutional, Judicial, Administrative and Auditors jurisdictions. The public prosecution and the representation of the State before the courts is assured by an independent body of magistrates, known as Public Ministry. The Ministry of Justice is the Government department responsible for the administration of the Judiciary system. The Portuguese judiciary system is not unitary, but it is instead divided in four independent categories or orders of courts: Constitutional, Judicial, Administrative and Auditors. Each order contains their own structure of courts. The Constitutional and Auditors ...
For example, ". . . most of the judges in family courts are women." would be written as "of the ___ judges in family court, ___ are women." by a journalist. And, by the way, if most of the judges in family court are women, does it follow that they will always find for the woman? So does it follow that any other kind of court case involving a man and woman, a male judge will always find for the man? Hmmm ...
Terri Schiavos medical condition is in dispute, she left no living will, we dont know her present wishes, and yet the courts are ordering that her husband has the right to kill her? This outrage simply couldnt happen in a culture that considered human life sacred.. "Objection," you say. "The courts are exhibiting their ultimate respect for life by carrying out the wishes of a person to terminate her own life and die with dignity.". Even the "pull the tube" advocates, then, are agreeing that we cant remove the feeding tube unless the patient has previously indicated her intent, either in writing or verbally, that that be done.. But what other conditions must be necessary for the doctors to remove nourishment to a physically healthy patient? Well, presumably, the patient must be in a persistent vegetative state, or PVS.. The courts have apparently determined that both conditions have been satisfied: Terri is in a PVS, and she expressed her intention not to be kept alive artificially if she ...
Indianas drug court movement began in 1996 with two drug courts that hoped to mirror the successes of the Court Alcohol and Drug Programs. As the number of drug courts grew in Indiana, a subcommittee was formed to consider the possibility of developing a certification program for drug courts. In 2002, the Indiana General Assembly enacted drug court legislation. By 2003, drug court rules were adopted which provided a framework for certification of drug courts operating under...

Well, I m going to disagree with you there. ECMO isn t going to keep anyone alive indefinitely. The path of least resistance here would have been to keep him on the machine until he passes, which honestly can t be more than just a few weeks away. He s already lived remarkably long on the machine.. That might have been the reasonable compromise, but as you stated and as I read in the posted article along with others, the child has shown no improvement, his heart and lungs are not functioning, his airways continued to be blocked and his condition was and is worsening not improving. In some cases there comes a point in time when further extraordinary life support measures are simply futile continuing the use of the ECMO machine might extend his physical life a few weeks or even months but eventually he will die with or without the life support; infections, bleeds and ultimately brain damage are all very real and not at all uncommon complications with extended use of ECMO. Keeping him alive only ...
