First critique of the fair and equitable health care act

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Dr. Crippen has assembled this volume to explore how critical care medicine (CCM) professionals approach the care of patients when they or their proxies request marginal or no-benefit care consuming increasingly limited resources in the global critical care village. Most chapters in this volume attest to how CCM professionals operationalize the dilemma of supply versus demand imbalance in their national systems and cultures under variable numbers of ICU beds, technology infrastructure, professional manpower, and historical and cultural precedents in the context of worldwide bioethical pleuralism [1].
