    Pope John Paul II stated, "I should like particularly to underline how the administration of water and food, even when provided by artificial means, always represents a natural means of preserving life, not a medical act. Its use, furthermore, should be considered, in principle, ordinary and proportionate, and as such morally obligatory. breathing is the spontaneous taking in and giving out of air from the lungs, the product of the visible movements of the ribcage and earlier years breathing was synonymous with life itself, for with the ‘last breath’ its absence signified death and departure of the soul. However, in the late nineteenth Century, the advent of a scientific understanding of its nature and basis .

Artificial respiration, breathing induced by some manipulative technique when natural respiration has ceased or is faltering. Such techniques, if applied quickly and properly, can prevent some deaths from drowning, choking, strangulation, suffocation, carbon monoxide poisoning, and electric shock.

Artificial ventilation, (also called artificial respiration) is means of assisting or stimulating respiration, a metabolic process referring to the overall exchange of gases in the body by pulmonary ventilation, external respiration, and internal respiration.

It may take the form of manually providing air for a person who is not breathing or is not making sufficient respiratory. Pope John Paul II seemed to affirm this opinion when he stated, in his allocution of Mathat ANH is not a medical act but, rather, a natural means of preserving life.

Let us concede for the moment that ANH is not a medical act but a natural means to preserve life. Background: The optimal hemoglobin level and transfusion threshold in patients with septic shock treated with an early, goal oriented approach to resuscitation remains unknown. Aims: To assess the impact of packed red blood cell (PRBC) transfusion on clinically relevant outcomes in patients with septic shock treated with early goal directed therapy (EGDT).

The treatment as described in the question constitutes extraordinary means of preserving life and so there is no obligation to use them nor to give the doctor permission to use them.

The rights and the duties of the family depend on the presumed will of the unconscious patient if he or she is of legal age, and the family, too, is bound to use.

Purpose A patient requires life support when one or more vital organs fail, due to causes such as trauma, infection, cancer, heart attack, or chronic disease. Among the purposes of life support are to.

Electrical Injuries. On the other hand, it is suggested that intentionally withholding anti-cancer treatment and artificial respiration is, in certain cases, not the intentional termination of the life of one human being by another. But if this is so, then one would want to know what the relevant criterion is for distinguishing between these cases.

First to thaw him in cold water, then to lay him in blankets, & by degrees & by friction to give him warmth, and to put into activity the minute blood vessels, at the same time to open a passage to the Lungs by the Trachaea, and to inflate them with air, to produce an artificial respiration, and to transfuse blood into him from a lamb.

On the use of artificial respiration and transfusion as a means of preserving life by Brunton, T. Lauder Sir 1 edition - first published in Read Listen. Respiration involves the oxidation of sugars to produce carbon dioxide, water and heat.

The storage life of a commodity is influenced by its respiratory activity. By storing a commodity at low temperature, respiration is reduced and senescence is delayed, thus extending storage life (Halachmy and Mannheim, ). Proper. Studies on the efficacy of the various methods of artificial respiration abound in the literature.

However, a comparative study of a number of current methods by the same group of observers, using a significant number of nonrigid human corpses, is. This means that there is more than enough residual oxygen to be used in the lungs of the patient, which then crosses the cell membrane to form oxyhaemoglobin.

Oxygen. The efficiency of artificial respiration can be greatly increased by the simultaneous use of oxygen therapy. The amount of oxygen available to the patient in mouth to mouth is. The treatment as described in the question constitutes extraordinary means of preserving life and so there is no obligation to use them nor to give the doctor permission to use them.

4. The rights and the duties of the family depend on the presumed will of the unconscious patient if he or she is of legal age, and the family, too, is bound to. Both constitute ordinary means of preserving life.

The fact that someone is in a state of unconsciousness and is not expected to recover [ does not justify ] depriving that person of food and water. If the provision of food and water proves to be useless (if they are not being assimilated by the body) or if it causes serious complications.

What is first aid? First aid is the initial assistance or care of a suddenly sick or injured person. It is the care administered by a person as soon as possible after an accident or illness. It is this prompt care and attention prior to the arrival of the ambulance that sometimes means the difference between life and death, or between a full or partial recovery.
