Description

Ethical issues in the critical care unit frequently arise in children with neurological problems. These ethical issues frequently challenge our medical management of such cases and can be quite problematic. This article reviews key ethical issues that may arise including informed consent, futility, justice/rationing, clinical research conduct and the severely compromised patient who is in either a permanent vegetative or minimally conscious state.
