    California...public health officials are still planning for a “worst-case scenario,” quietly publishing a sobering set of detailed guidelines to answer the troubling ethical question of who lives and who dies should California face a new surge in the coronavirus outbreak, resulting in a shortage of ventilators and medical supplies. A 38-page document by the California Department of Public Health, published last weekend, prescribes a method to prioritize patients in the event that an outbreak overwhelms hospitals, preserving intensive care beds and ventilators for people with the greatest likelihood of surviving with treatment over those with serious chronic conditions that limit...

    Reporting at David Wenner writes that a “point system” proposed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health could leave an especially vulnerable population, people with disabilities, without the health care they need, when it comes to life-saving treatment for COVID-19. “Disability Rights Pennsylvania has filed a federal civil rights complaint,” the Philadelphia Inquirer added. This frightening proposal—“Interim Pennsylvania Crisis Standards of Care for Pandemic Guidelines”– is raising new questions about the prospect of medical rationing during the Coronavirus pandemic, a possibility already raised by assorted “bioethicists.” Under this disturbing system, those with higher scores because of pre-existing conditions would be...

    Coronavirus patients may have life-saving treatment withdrawn if others with the virus are more likely to survive, according to new guidance issued to UK doctors. Health workers could be forced to make "grave decisions" should hospitals become overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, the latest advice from the British Medical Association (BMA) states. The document warns that decisions around rationing scarce resources, such as ventilators, could determine whether large numbers of patients will receive life-saving treatment or not. The deaths of another 563 coronavirus patients in the UK were announced on Wednesday, the country's biggest daily increase since the outbreak began. Prime...
  • UK: Patients More Likely To Die May Have Ventilators Taken Away

    04/02/2020 12:24:04 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 17 replies ^ | 1 Apr 2020
    Stable coronavirus patients could be taken off ventilators in favour of those more likely to survive, it emerged on Wednesday, as another sharp rise in deaths left the UK braced for the outbreak to reach up to 1,000 deaths a day by the end of the week. In a stark new document issued by the British Medical Association, doctors set out guidelines to ration care if the NHS becomes overwhelmed with new cases as the outbreak moves towards its peak. A rise in the death toll of 563 brought the overall total to 2,352, an increase of 31% on Tuesday’s...

    Francis Davis is Professorial Fellow in the Institute on Ageing Population at the University of Oxford and until recently a non-executive director of an NHS Trust.It became apparent this week that the National Institute of Clinical Excellence has issued new guidance on how NHS staff should go about choosing who should be refused critical health care in the coming weeks. Even though these proposals emerge from a bureaucratic backwater, they are a recipe for which the Government and Parliamentarians, as they pass emergency laws, will be held personally responsible. They recommend focusing the refusal of critical clinical care on the...

    Through the garbled word soup of fancy buzzwords and bureaucratic newspeak, officials in Washington state are basically saying they are preparing to ration health services, with those whom the state seems as less desirable to receive less attention and care. In the age of what’s pretty much Bernie Sanders’s wet dream of socialized healthcare, there simply aren’t enough resources to care for everyone.The Seattle Times reports: Washington state and hospital officials have been meeting to consider what once was almost unthinkable — how to decide who lives and dies if, as feared, the coronavirus pandemic overwhelms the state’s health care...

    Gateway Pundit ^ | March 25, 2020 | Matthew Wright
    Doctors across the country are deciding whether to adopt standard policies for not resuscitating patients with coronavirus in an effort to curb possible virus exposure for medical staff. In Chicago, the Northwestern Memorial Hospital has been debating how to implement a universal do-not-resuscitate policy for infected patients. The policy would void the wishes of the patient or their family members. The death toll for Covid-19 in the United States has risen to 823 with more than 60,000 confirmed cases, and the burden of the pandemic continues to intensify in hospitals across the country. ... Similar discussions around not resuscitating have...
  • We can no longer give respirators to anyone aged over SIXTY warns Israeli doctor working in coronavirus epicentre of northern Italy

    An Israeli doctor working in the coronavirus epicentre of northern Italy said medics are no longer allowed to give respirators to anyone aged over 60. Dr Gal Peleg - who works in Parma, Italy - said artificial respiratory machines are so low in numbers access must be limited. The coronavirus death toll in Italy's worst-hit region has surpassed 3,450 in the last 24 hours after a rise of 360 fatalities in Lombardy. Dr Peleg said his department makes sure terminally-ill coronavirus patients can say goodbye to their loved ones despite strict quarantine rules, N12 reports.

    For a pandemic that seems particularly fatal for the elderly, Joe Biden has tapped a so-called "expert" to advise him about the Wuhan coronavirus. The only problem with the "expert" is that he believes people should die before they get too old, saying he himself wishes to die at the age of 75. Biden is 77. The former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate has decided to create a "Public Health Advisory Committee" to inform him about the coronavirus while the candidate campaigns for the White House. Biden is trying to paint a picture of himself as an informed, capable...

    The world is in a state of paranoia currently as nations try to combat the spread and effect of the coronavirus. Italy is facing the worst of the crisis right now and its medical system has descended into a state of chaos, according to news reports about the situation there. One doctor who is treating patients there likened the situation to treating patients in a battlefield, like Vietnam or the aftermath of the attacks on Pearl Harbor and having to make split-second decisions on which patients will be treated and which ones will be denied care after a quick triage....

    Among the members of Biden's 'Public Health Advisory Committee' is Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who had been a top healthcare adviser to President Obama and was a central character in the Obama-Biden administration's Obamacare push. . . . 'The campaign’s top priority is and will continue to be the health and safety of the public,' a release from the campaign said. 'Members of the committee will provide ongoing counsel to the campaign, which will in turn continue to update the public regarding operational decisions.' The announcements on Wednesday come a day after the coronavirus outbreak started truly impacting the 2020 campaign.

    Michael Bloomberg may have just lost his shot to get the Democrat’s 2020 nomination based on a resurfaced video in which he says the elderly should not get full medical care in order to save money. (see video) Here’s a partial transcript via Newsbusters: “If you’re bleeding, we’ll stop the bleeding. If you need an x-ray, you’re gonna have to wait,” Bloomberg told a Jewish family, explaining his view on how our medical system should work. “All of these costs keep going up, no one wants to pay any more money,” he continued. “And at the rate we’re going, health...

    For several months, the family of Tinslee Lewis has been fighting to continue her treatment at the Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas after the facility planned to end care. Tinslee was born with a rare heart defect called Ebstein's anomaly and suffers from chronic lung disease and severe chronic pulmonary hypertension. The hospital planned to remove her from life-support after her physicians said she is suffering and her condition is irreversible, Cook Children's Health Care System spokeswoman Winifred King had said in a statement. On Thursday, Judge Sandee B. Marion of the Texas Fourth Court of Appeals...

    People with severe but stable heart disease from clogged arteries may have less chest pain if they get a procedure to improve blood flow rather than just giving medicines a chance to help, but it won’t cut their risk of having a heart attack or dying over the following few years, a big federally funded study found. The results challenge medical dogma and call into question some of the most common practices in heart care. They are the strongest evidence yet that tens of thousands of costly stent procedures and bypass operations each year are unnecessary or premature for people...
  • A doctor and medical ethicist argues life after 75 is not worth living (Ezekiel Emanuel keeps at it)

    MIT Technology Review ^ | August 21, 2019 | Stephen S. Hall
    In October 2014, Ezekiel Emanuel published an essay in the Atlantic called “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” Because Emanuel is a medical doctor and chair of the University of Pennsylvania’s department of medical ethics and health policy, as well as a chief architect of Obamacare, the article stirred enormous controversy. Emanuel vowed to refuse not only heroic medical interventions once he turned 75, but also antibiotics and vaccinations. His argument: older Americans live too long in a diminished state, raising the question of, as he put it, “whether our consumption is worth our contribution.” Emanuel was born into...

    A shortage of a versatile medicine used to treat immune disorders and other diseases has forced U.S. hospitals and infusion clinics to suspend treatment for many patients. The medicine, immune globulin, contains antibodies harvested from plasma, a component of blood. The injected product helps people with compromised immune systems fight off infections, and treats certain muscle and nerve disorders. The drug’s shortage increases the risk of infection for patients and the amount of pain they are suffering, doctors say.
