"Her family was told she was brain dead..... Now shes back at home cooking dinner with her family....The world of organ donation in Denmark is in turmoil. A documentary was aired earlier this month which showed family members reacting in anguish to the news that their 19-year-old daughter was brain dead after a car accident, agreeing to donate her organs and allowing doctors to turn off her respirator.....But we made a mistake underway and made the family believe that their daughter and sister would die.....The hospital acknowledged that the question of organ donation should not have been raised as there were no unambiguous signs that brain death would occur.

Something smells here.
Somehow, ‘harvest’ and ‘organs’ just don’t go together. How about ‘pluck’.
The issues run deep. I have been pushed by nurses, and sometimes family to withdraw care at times when I didn’t feel it was justified. In one of those instances a mother, who had ‘died’ in front of her 12 year old son, didn’t wake up for 5 weeks, then immediately recognized her family. Her young son has his mom back because we didn’t listen to those saying it was hopeless, including some neurologists. Unless there is unequivocal evidence of brain death, without complicating issues such as the effects of certain drugs such as midazolam on EEG patterns, you had better be very careful what decisions you recommend and make.
Obamacare .... just as good or better than Europe. 798 patients die of malnutrition or dehydration in GB hospitals, organ harvest panel prepares to harvest organs from a living patient in Denmark, and the list goes on and on. Those sophisticated Europeans sure have a lot to teach us backward colonials.
