dc.description.abstractA practicing psychiatrist recounts the harrowing experience of a colleague in attempting to persuade his brother's physician to cease useless therapeutic efforts. Crawshaw argues that biomedical technologies encourage medical zealotry and suggests that machines dictate treatment, interfering with appropriate decision making by physicians and patients. He urges hospitals to provide appeals mechanisms for patients, families, and physicians. (KIE abstract)en
