Creating Waves of Awareness
How many times people providing a health service (doctor and/or homeopath) have had to face the difficult position of having to make a decision in the case of a patient no longer curable.
Obviously, it is not the best circumstance, but it is our duty to get the best deal for the good death of the patient. I'm talking about a dignified death.
Everyone knows how powerful can be our homeopathic remedies, but perhaps a few know at what moment we must stop in order not to prolong the suffering of a patient in agony.
Logically, this will depend largely of the circumstances in which the patient is, I mean, if the patient really has no chance to life, in this sense, it is very easy to misunderstand the concept of passive euthanasia, that it refers to the type euthanasia characterized by intentionally letting die patient in a default way, only with care or treatment that are necessary and reasonable.
This expression "passive euthanasia” is sometimes used incorrectly to refer to good medical practice, when rather is disguising the failure of disproportionate treatments that are counterproductive, undesirable or too expensive.
We must not talk about any form of euthanasia in such cases because it promotes ambiguity and helps to blur the boundaries between the proper practice of medicine and euthanasia. It's the supporters who try this practice.
However, it should be maintained the expression and the specific concept of passive euthanasia despite of sometimes have been misunderstood the meaning, on occasion, thus ending the life of the patient by medical indication: denying care that is necessary and reasonable.
Furthermore, there is the case of unwarranted active euthanasia that is not other thing that simply the use intentioned, deliberate of one positive action that causes death.
If we consider both types of euthanasia, they can fall in bioethics misperceptions, however one of them, the passive, should be taken into account in certain circumstances in which the patient has died but only lives vegetatively. (Personal opinion)
For most of patients without possibilities, there is a way, the way of ortoeuthanasia, referring to the death accepted, but in the best possible conditions with all discomforts relieved, without thirst, without pain, without drowning.
Finally, the best choice is yours and from patient’s family, and of course, what is approved for laws in the respective countries.
