Ethics of the First Transplant Part 1
Ethicsof the First Transplant
SurgeonBarnard was correct to force Washy back to the ventilator. Washy didnot know what he was in for but had Barnard known Washy might havelived much longer. According to Margareta Batten’s idea, Washy dieda least bad death.
Thefirst heart transplant led to the brain death definition, and itremained conserved in Harvard. The definition implied that artificialhearts cause blood clots formed on joints and surfaces of mechanicalsurfaces. When the clots break free, they travel in the blood to thevessels in the brain causing brain death.
Bothartificial and first heart transplant were termed premature becauseof both presented medical problems before cyclosporine in that poortrade-offs for patients. Preventively treating one kind of problemworsened another.
Itis not bad to be famous most surgeons are regarded as brave,dedicated, and brilliant on the contrary most of them experiment onhuman beings. Their fame is not based on success but on attempts,which sometimes fail and have side effects on their patients.
Becauseof the dedication and fame, most surgeons get divorced. Due to fame,Barnard and Loki were married for 20 years then they divorced.Barnard then dated a 19-year model and waitress respectively.
Thesaying opportunity cost is an opportunity lost applies when the moneyspent on treatment is much similar to the prevention cost. However,prevention is better a remedy if people were empowered on ways ofprevention.
Incases of emergency consent, seeking should be minimal because thecandidate may not understand the experimental nature of the operationthus seeking consent will not be effective.
Eventhough many reporters may comment on organ transplant, it might nothave a big impact on patients who are in dire need of the services.
“Whyuse time and cash where they are no results”
“Thisis the key reasons behind the existence of ethics boards inhospitals. I would recommend such situations to doctors”
“Cheatingpatients about the treatments is not right”
“Thedelivery of truth combined with compassion can be described as agift”
