w4d4 – dignity in death

a few thoughts without conclusion:

we had reason to discuss dignity when dying out of disease. when is the time for the doctor to call it quits? there are guidelines in various situations that one can look to when in doubt, or you can ask a senior colleague. in sweden, as far as I know, the guidelines regarding acute heart disease (such as ventricular tachycardia, electric pulseless activity and other conditions) contain an ethical aspect where you are encouraged to not make the decision to stop on your own. the decision still lies with the physician, though.

also, in sweden it is the doctor who decides whether or not someone should have limited treatment in specified situations (”behandlingsbegränsning”) due to certain factors (i.e. it won’t matter, you are toast anyway. food for thought.
