dc.description.abstractThe author maintains that the distinction between ordinary and extraordinary medical treatment has little or no moral value unless one accepts an almost absolute obligation to preserve life. Rejecting such an obligation, he proceeds to consider the obligations upon which appropriate treatment decisions should be based. These duties are identified as the provision of competent medical care to improve quality of life with due attention to the patient's desires, consideration of the family's wishes and the economic and psychological impact on society, and avoidance of litigation.
