Other issues arise when a person is declared dead when they really aren’t because sometimes mistakes can be done in authentication. Living donors are not left out either in ethical discussions. Some think it is wrong to mutilate a person for the sake of another. For instance, the catholic denomination consider organ transplantation unethical because it goes against the totality principle which states that one part of the body can be sacrificed for the well-being of the rest of the body. No one is obliged to give their organs as a donation and therefore the informed consent has also been an ethical issue.
After the fourth operation, I did not see Tibi anymore “ This was just one example of hundreds of body maiming experiments Mengele conducted, many of which were used for practice rather than meaningful testing. This specific example clearly showed the fact that Mengele did not consider the children as people at all. Another study commonly conducted was when one twin would be injected with a disease and then monitored so that the progression of the disease could be observed. If the infected twin died from the disease the other would be killed so that Mengele can conduct a comparative autopsy to see the disease’s effect on the body (Schwab, Bacchi). The experiments were cruel if not worse than labor.
Imagine this: two months ago, you were diagnosed with lung cancer. The doctors told you that you only had weeks left. Somehow you’ve stayed alive this long, but you wished you hadn’t. The doctors told you that your lungs were going to slowly fill with fluid and eventually kill you. Essentially, you are drowning in your own lung fluid.
Webster was a football player with Pittsburgh Steelers; he anchored the teams front line and aided them in achieving four robust super bowl wins. Only later did he begin zapping himself and ranting at strangers, a habit that got attached to him after severe health deterioration. It was the peak of such health degeneration that saw his death at age 50 from a heart attack. Webster died without realizing the reason behind his deteroriation. Dr. Omalu knew nothing concerning football and thus didn’t have the complete list of players
Doctors diagnose heartburn. A few days later, because of severe pain in the stomach, established a new diagnosis - an inflammation of the gallbladder, common in diabetics. He was sent to surgery to remove the organ that has stopped working. In the meantime, the pain in his face from baking moved to sense a series of electric shocks, which continued to be a stable symptom.

The bluntness of the introduction of Ted Lavender’s death shows how sudden his death was and how death was an ordinary occurrence in the Vietnam war. Ted Lavender’s death plays a significant role in the novel. He carried tranquilizers and extra ammunition as precaution and a way to calm himself; however, he was still killed. His death is ironic because the items that were meant to protect him ended up weighing him down, which made him fall quicker when he was killed. This shows how no object could prevent the soldiers from dying and how death was a worry constantly on the soldiers
He had been exposed to the elements for 8 days and to top it all off he was poisoned by the irradiated water he had drunk during his escape requiring years of treatment to fully recover. When he discovered he was the only one to successfully escape he was diagnosed with PTSD and fell into a fit of “survivor's guilt” (Kiger) by alienating himself from his family and placed the military before anything else. This was later resolved once he ended his military career and he returned to his family. He soon became the author of a book called “The One That Got Away” and gained great success as a military fiction author. Today Chris Ryan is a public speaker for sufferers of PTSD and holds the SAS record for longest retreat through the desert (Manger).
When suicide gets mentioned the first thing that usually comes to mind is someone who is very depressed ending their life. The thought of someone who is terminally ill wanting to commit suicide usually never crosses someone's mind because they are supposed to keep strong, to keep fighting their illness and stay alive. Jack Kevorkian was a physician who made a suicide machine specifically to help ill people who can't function normally to commit suicide, he helped around 130 people commit suicide. When people found out about jack kevorkian and what he was doing they were outraged, how could someone help another person end their life when you should help them have a life worth living? The people wanted him imprisoned and the people got what they wanted, he was sentenced 10-25 years in prison but was released after 8 years as long as he did not continue to assist in any suicides.
Now, surgeons can successfully perform these surgeries, and they’re still advancing. The advancement of heart surgery was a big deal, and “Before the last part of the nineteenth century, major heart surgery--opening the chest to operate directly on an exposed heart--was considered outside the realm of possibility....Surgeon Daniel Hale Williams (1865-1931)...opened the chest of a stabbing victim and sewed up the pericardium (the sac surrounding the heart)...in 1893.” (“Open Heart Surgery”) At one time, heart surgery was once impossible. Imagine all of the people who died from these awful problems, because nobody could fix the problems they were having. They did not know how to keep the heart beating through surgery, especially open heart procedures. But, they eventually did it and now it is possible, thanks to people like Hale Williams.

The only problem with this medicine was it didn’t help stop the disease only limit or tolerate the pain, so the patient was still very vulnerable to the disease. Robert E. Lee’s heart disease did eventually kill him due to the lack of medical technology. The second soldier was Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and he was shot with a bullet that went through both of his hips, this can be found on page 354. Many people did not expect him to live. He was a volunteer in the war for the Union Army.
Dr. Waldo ( who is a great surgeon ) gave us inoculations for smallpox so that we could get rid of the harmful disease(YouTube Valley Forge 2015). General Washington who thought of the inoculation idea was genius now 49/50 survive the smallpox inoculation. Britain who has encountered with smallpox has not found a cure for smallpox. Some of their men are now dying from smallpox. Dr. Waldo who tries to save us soldiers has been doing well, but harsh on us soldiers because we are the ones fighting with all the injuries ( Waldo, Doc.
In Philadelphia 1973 early August, a robust and fatal disease had emerged through the garbaged pavement roads and city ‘sinks’. Dr. Hugh Hodge was one of the first to encounter the deadly disease, and it taking the life of his daughter days before meeting with a new patient with the same grotesque symptoms. Hugh and his colleague Dr. John Foulke cautiously cared for Catherine LeMaigre, reciting and reviewing previous documents that would provide treatments for such a harmful, painful disease. The tactics both the Doctor’s had used didn’t help with Catherine’s well being, and thus astonishing them since they haven’t ever seen prestigious methods shot down. Dr. Benjamin Rush, a well respected man and founding father of the United States, had rushed to the news of Catherine, and then decided the fatal disease was Yellow Fever.

I learned about Dr. Drew and his achievements from the Internet. Dr. Drew died in 1950 as a result of an automobile crash. Contrary to popular urban legend, Alamance General Hospital in Burlington, N.C., an all-White hospital, did not deny him a blood transfusion. He had a superior vena cava syndrome and blood was blocked getting back to his heart from his brain and upper extremities. To give him a transfusion would have killed him sooner.
