Great explanation of this sacrament by a Dominican priest who is also an RN, Fr. Christopher Saliga.

Is Anointing of the Sick the same as the Last Sacrament?

Final Analysis

Whether one legitimately fears probable death or one is going for a common but serious surgery reasonably expected to bring cure rather than death, one would do well to seek out Anointing of the Sick for the good of his/her own sanctification. In cases in which one is guilty of sin, one should also have his/her confession heard unto absolution and receive Eucharist. Doing so gives a person all the reason in the world to be at peace. In the end, rather than inappropriately treating these sacraments of healing as quasi “last-ditch placebo-type ‘holistic’ palliative interventions,” [13] viewing them superstitiously, or not thinking of them at all, one should begin with them and continue to practice them and other prayer forms insofar as one is capable throughout one’s course of treatment even, and perhaps most especially, when cure is probably impossible.
