Ethics and law in resuscitation


New, rapid advances in medicine and technology render it necessary to organise regular, interdisciplinary sessions where philosophers and lawyers could make their contribution alongside the representatives of the medical profession. The aim of these meetings is to discuss moral, ethical and legal issues concerning the resuscitated patients. The perplexities of undertaking decisions with regard to the patients who balance on the narrow borderline between life and death, including a dilemma when to stop all the treatment, call for the guidelines which will conform to the standards applied in medicine and ethics. There is a need to introduce and popularise the standard resuscitation procedures in accordance with International 2000 Guideline for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care. popularising them among the doctors and the general public will contribute to a decrease rate of the resuscitated patients.
