This is a remarkable medical achievement but the moral and ethical challenges it creates are obvious. Archie's care requires the following: Standard treatment and care practiced in a neuro-intensive care with round the clock care provided by 1:1 and at times 2:1 nursing (heavily dependent)Continuous and invasive monitoring to allow target of haemodynamic parameters (monitoring of blood pressure, heart rate and urine output and treatment targeted to keep them within a standard range known to be safe) Oxygenation and carbon dioxide clearance by the ventilator (breathing machine) as he is unable to breathe for himself Routine neuro-critical care respiratory management (standard patient positioning, turning, clearance of secretions by suctioning and physiotherapy of the chest)Regular turning and care to prevent pressure areas developing and bed sores Regular cleaning and changes to prevent skin breakdownSupport of the blood pressure with medications as neededTreatment for chest, blood or other infection with antibiotics as requiredContinuous Vasopressin administration to control water balance and salt balance within the body based on hourly urine outputFluid boluses due to large uncontrolled urine output despite treatment as neededFeeding via a tube into the stomach to give nutrition as toleratedLoperamide treatment to slow down the passage of food through his gastrointestinal tract due to diarrhoea secondary to gut failure associated with brain failureAdministration of glucose to prevent low blood sugars as neededElectrolyte disturbance corrections, particularly potassium, (body salts kept within a safe range by regular replacement)Active warming to prevent the body getting too cold as neededSteroid replacement and thyroid hormone replacement (hormone replacement needed due to brain damage)Prophylactic treatment to prevent deep vein thrombosis (clots forming in blood vessels)

Quotehuman life is undoubtedly exceptionally important to protect (and why war, austerity and general environmental destruction is bad) but we really need to accept the fact that sometimes people die and there's nothing you can do about it
Quote from: H-O-W-L on August 06, 2022, 10:55:50 PMAll indication is it's because the mother kept screaming about them wanting to harvest his organs and being "murderers". Which is frankly bollocks because his organs were long past usable months ago and if they really, really wanted to proper-kill the poor blighter it'd have happened loooong ago.
Quote from: Kankurette on August 07, 2022, 08:02:45 AMI know I should feel sad for her but shit like this makes it hard. Why would they harvest organs that don't work? And because of her, the staff will probably get death threats, all sorts. Because all kinds of thick twats believe doctors and nurses are all like Beverley Allitt.

I desperately want to joke about the media circus around him, but I don't want to take the piss out of the dead child who is in the middle of it and is, even if he doesn't realise it, spoiling my fun.Anyone else looking at it like this?
Quote from: Huxleys Babkins on August 07, 2022, 08:21:29 AMNah, I can't be angry. These are classic fundie tropes spouted verbatim by a radicalised victim too wracked with grief and guilt to realise she's being played.The only people I'm angry with are the cunts that radicalised her and the media who've given her a platform.

QuoteIn a statement released on Sunday, the family said the pressure of the process had been "unbelievable"."We want something good to come out of this tragedy and the horrendous experience we have been put through by the system," they added."No parent or family must go through this again."We have been forced to fight a relentless legal battle by the hospital trust while faced with an unimaginable tragedy."We were backed into a corner by the system, stripped of all our rights, and have had to fight for Archie's real 'best interests' and right to live with everything stacked against us."This has now happened too often to parents who do not want their critically-ill children to have life-support removed."There must be an investigation and inquiry through the proper channels on what has happened to Archie, and we will be calling for change."
