A 47-year-old overweight male with a history of arthrosclerosis, diabetes mellitus type 2, and coronary artery disease (CAD) is found by a neighbor unconscious and not breathing in his front lawn where he appears to have been mowing his lawn. He is rushed to a local emergency room where it is determined that he has suffered a massive inferior myocardial infarction. He is sent to the intensive care unit in critical condition where he is placed on advanced life support equipment, and several days later, it is determined that he has minimal brain activity.After hearing her husband’s condition, his tearful wife asks you how it is possible that her husband’s brain might not function if it was his heart that stopped beating. How would you answer?
As the next of kin, his wife has the right to make husband’s medical decisions when he is unable to. Because the length of time that this patient was in cardiac arrest appears to have been substantial, the patient’s recovery is highly unlikely. The medical staff gently informs the wife that she has to make a decision regarding his health care: she can withdraw care now or choose to do everything to keep him alive, even though he will most likely die. She asks you what you think she should do. With your knowledge of neurophysiology, how would you answer her?
Follow the 3 x 3 rule: minimum three paragraphs per DQ, with a minimum of three sentences each paragraph.· All answers or discussions comments submitted must be in APA format according to Publication Manual AmericanPsychological Association (APA) (6th ed.) 2009 ISBN: 978-1-4338-0561-5· Minimum of two references, not older than 2015.
