Item description for The Way We Die: Brain Death, Vegetative State, Euthanasia and Other End-of-Life Dilemmas by Leslie Ivan...
Rapid advances in modern medicine have revolutionized the way we think about death and the processes of dying. Once death was defined as the absence of respiration or heartbeat; today patients hooked up to a respirator and feeding tube can be kept alive for months or years. Ivan and Melrose carefully explain the various medical processes involved in death and dying. In doing so they also confront the many ethical, moral and legal dilemmas that face doctors today, as well as the decisions that must be taken by relatives.
