Book Synopsis
Our century has seen great advances in the knowledge about the human life cycle and in the power to combat disease and death. But with this increased power, new dilemmas have sprung up for medical personnel, and new anguish on the part of patients and those who are close to them. How far should physicians go in delaying death?
Which of the many techniques for prolonging life can they omit in caring for a terminally ill patient? What can patients ask doctors to do when there is a conflict between prolonging life and easing suffering?
Is there anything a person can do before becoming a patient to decrease the chances of being reduced to intolerable levels of suffering, loneliness, and dehumanization?
These dilemmas have been discussed under the heading of euthanasia hampered by a dearth of information and lack of definitions. Topics discussed by various writers include “Legal Aspects of Voluntary Medical Euthanasia”;
