Stories about end of life situations I encountered during a 32 year practice in Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine. I try to point out the ethical issues, stresses, successes and failures. There are literature citations but this is a personal, hopefully educational exercise. Please comment!

"Your Life Your Choices"
Here is a video of a program I’ve been involved with for the past 10 years giving presentations in a variety of venues. We all have the rights to make end of life choices and to have them honored. Dr. Robert Penfeld at Kaiser Permanente is carrying out research concerning the choices of people who are becoming cognitively impaired. Kaiser and Virginia Mason both offer classes, “Your Life Your Choices.” Check it out if your advance directives might need updating.
