Description

We now have wonderful tools that can now keep patients alive who a half-century ago would have died. These life support devices are best used to bridge patients through a potentially reversible illness. But what happens when time shows us that the condition is not reversible? Do we stop life support or are we obligated to continue it? This Mednet webcast will educate you on managing conflicts around medical futility.
