Worst case is his situation stays the same. Shoot that shot.
Isn't clinical death heartbeat and respiration?If I'm on the operating table and my heart stops beating I'm dead right? Surely I'm dead if no one does anything. But if the medical staff intervene and restart my heart then we can agree I'm alive. IDK I'm not necessarily disagreeing with your sentiment (our nomenclature of death implies permanence) but it seems to me that you can be technically dead and then brought back to life in medical terms.
Apparently you don't shock pulseless electrical activity, true.You don't defibrillate unless there is a heartbeat. You do CPR to keep blood flowing and the brain supplied with oxygen and try to get a heartbeat going through other means or hope it returns naturally but defibrillation is only done to reset the heart from various arrhythmia.
Oof. Yeah, that detail kinda makes me think he's got more of a point than just being a wise guy.
This. It's 2019, and cardiac death is not necessarily death. Brain death, on the other hand, there's no coming back from.
You don't have rights like that when your in prison, you are literally property of the state.
You don't want to talk about stuff like that on Era. Believe me.
He has no case. Legally he's considered property of the state. It's at the States discretion to honor a DNR or not.
Who are you to judge? Fucking jabroni.We do not find his argument persuasive,” Judge Potterfield wrote, adding that the judges found it unlikely the Legislature would have wanted “to set criminal defendants free whenever medical procedures during their incarceration lead to their resuscitation by medical professionals.”
Sorry. In what country did that happen?Doctors seem to like ignoring DNRs. My dad signed one because he was in too much pain and wanted it to end. Went into cardiac arrest and his heart stopped beating. Doctors began defib anyways, trying to claim the DNR wasn't valid because the pain he was in clouded his judgment.
USA. We didn't pursue it since life saving attempts failed and he got his wish anyways. Government gave us some money for his death since the medical problems that led to his death were caused by an experiment they were doing during the war he was enlisted in. Got exposed accidentally to the shit.
They couldn't force the treatment but they can provide the treatment should both the state and the patient wish it. The state always has the mandate to preserve life until such a time as the people(through the state) deem a life forfeit. That's why you hear stories about death row prisoners receiving life saving treatments only to be executed later.
